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.
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.
It started off as an idea over the holidays, so I put it out to see if there would be any interest – I recorded a few fresh mini trainings about Remote Work With Kids covering mindset, processes and routines and then hosted a live coworking session before sending everyone their Retreat Digital Care Package.
I wrote a post in a freelance parenting community group based in the UK and it received more feedback than I anticipated. Going to share it here in case you were looking for another way to articulate your value (not that you should need to).
There are lots more I didn’t do and other things I did in 2020, like family time/bonding with my kids/working alongside my partner/trying to endure/getting out of bed most days/counting to 10 before responding to the same question…this post includes the highlights for me.
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.
Got lots done in 2020 thanks to this tip: Let things go, while focusing on getting others done. Read on for a list of things I did instead of folding laundry and neatly putting it away this year.
