My Work From Home Setup

Presenting, hosting and facilitating webinars

Last week I presented, attended and hosted three webinars within 26 hours. Phew! 🐝

The first one was for the PARO Centre For Women’s Enterprise about doing remote work with kids. I covered three techniques I’ve used over the past decade to help with my remote workflow and more recently (over the past five years), since becoming a parent.

It included mindset and productivity tips I’ve tested as a parent over the years, including:

  • Mindset approaches and reframes;
  • Techniques you can begin implementing straight away; and
  • Tips to ensure you look after yourself and your needs.

I covered personal and professional areas, including practical tips you can adapt based on your remote work situation, for both small business owners and employees.

Stay tuned for my next post where I’ll share a recap of the three things I covered – all free to try out and implement, they mainly take your intention, practice and consistency.

Going from presenter to attendee

I hopped off that session and then logged into a Digital Main Street workshop hosted by Invest Ottawa for women entrepreneurs, where I got vulnerable and maybe had a bit of a cry after.

It was designed to help everyone recentre and refocus over the coming year but as a Digital Main Street Ambassador, I also wanted to attend to support the programming and share my key takeaways with the community at Mixing Babies And Business™, as they are mainly women-identifying business owners, freelancers and/or remote workers.

Then from attendee to host and moderator

I rested up before logging on the next day to help host and moderated a ‘Women, Leadership & Innovation’ series webinar for the Pan-Can Ireland Chambers of Commerce with attendees from both sides of the Atlantic.

It focused on women in business, leadership and innovation, featuring two Canadian women entrepreneurs who run their own construction companies and they discussed apprenticeships and getting youth and women into careers the trades.

Who knew when I started facilitating webinars for Velg Training almost a decade ago in Australia, I’d end up doing it most of the time in 2020/2021 from Canada!?

Back then I was daydreaming of travel, working from wherever, maybe some day having a family and the same passport as my Irish husband and future kids.

Sometimes it’s fun to look back and see how things unfolded.

I ticked off the first three and an Irish passport is still on the list, but for now this is my remote work from home set up in Canada.

✨Care to share anything magical which has occurred for you over the past decade as a result of you wishing for what you desire and then taking some leaps into the unknown?

Stay well everyone,
