Less than one month after sharing my podcast workflow on this blog and my social media, I’m now presenting it as an online webinar and workshop. This my friends, is the beauty of sharing your work, showing up and trusting in the timing of things.
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.
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.
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 sincerely hope you’ll find comfort in hearing the lived experience of other entrepreneurial and community leaders, in their own words, who have been adapting to their parenthood journey along the way. Special thanks to all of our guests and podcast listeners to date.
When I first launched the Mixing Babies And Business™ Podcast in November, my goal was to reach people who can’t attend events IRL or online, releasing new mini episodes every Tuesday and Friday until the holidays. People are *actually* downloading them and tuning in and we hit 100 downloads within the first 30 days!
A note about making connections: At home and abroad. Back in March 2010, I met my Irish husband in Canada before flying out to Australia a few months later.
When your birthday is the day before White Ribbon Day, you celebrate by recording online conversations with entrepreneurs and leaders across Canada focused on entrepreneurship, flexible and remote work with kids.
What started as an idea turned into self-doubt and problem solving, before quickly evolving into admiration and then enthusiasm to share these stories with other people.
