The five-day 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. work week hasn’t been designed to uplift everyone. That’s why it needs to be reinvented and I refuse to squeeze my life into it. I value flexibility and so do many other people, parents or not.
I don’t often tend to tally things but over the years, when I’ve felt like I was floating around and not making much traction, I have found it helpful to pause, reflect and note what I’ve done or what’s different over a quarter, six months, year or more. This article will give you a bit of insight into why I’m creating a podcast, my basic workflow and the tools I use.
Signs, signs, everywhere a sign! We won’t be able to travel to Australia any time soon, but our passports will always be kept up to date to revisit our first home together.
When I started freelancing over a decade ago, I didn’t know what ‘remote work’ was. Then when I started ‘remote working’ in 2014, I didn’t have kids but also didn’t know anyone else doing it. In fact, I was the only Canadian ‘remote worker’ in my small Irish village that I knew of. The locals told me so.
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.
12 years ago I went to Ireland for the first time, we were only there 4 days but I knew I had to come back.
We can’t go anywhere but we can still connect with each other. Join me for the next FREE Remote Work (Virtual) Retreat For Parents, refresh your routines and meet other like-minded individuals!
My experience narrating and recording my first audiobook: The whole ‘small steps, taken regularly add up to big results’ advice can seem discouraging when you’re searching for a quick fix but it is sooooo true.
I’ve been making more time for beauty and joy, creating for the sake of it in 2021. Focusing on drawing and painting flowers, buds and plants from places I’ve lived (Brisbane > Kildare > Galway > London) as part of a ‘Waiting For Spring’ series.
