Think Maternity Leave Is The Best Time To 'Fix' Your Career?
Spoiler alert: the answer is not what you might think!
For so long my career plan went a little something like this…
Have a baby, go on maternity leave, figure out what I want to do with my career, never go back to my job and do my new thing.
As a high-achieving, career focused woman, this strategy may surprise you but at the time, I truly felt like it was my only option. I had no idea what I wanted to do and didn’t have the time or mental space (my job was hectic - long hours, high stress) to figure it out.
So, you can imagine my frustration when I couldn’t get pregnant and the ‘finish line’ became a moving and unreachable target.
F*ck this. I need a better plan.
And so began my journey of figuring out what to do. I fumbled my way through it which eventually it led me to discovering a totally new industry (coaching), getting qualified, side-hustling and eventually quitting my job to go all in with my business which was at this point established and bringing in $$.
Now, hindsight is a wonderful thing but I can honestly say I am SO GRATEFUL my experience rolled out like this. Focusing my energy on what to do in my career before getting pregnant allowed me to study without the pressure of thinking I needed to be working / selling instead, test & tweak my ideas, build a portfolio of clients and gain the confidence that my business could thrive. Plus, after years of doing IVF, on day one of being full-time in my own business I found out I was pregnant!!
Soooo many people are sitting in jobs that they don’t like, have outgrown or simply don’t get purpose and joy from anymore but are waiting for the circuit breaker of parental leave to do something about it.
Well from today, everything changes.
It’s time to board Flight to Freedom; a three-month group career coaching program that will move you from your soul-sucking job into the career you crave so that you're ready for that baby.
This is a brand new program that will arm you with the tools, knowledge, and confidence to move away from the role that lacks inspiring leadership, financial reward, solid training and development, clear progression opportunities, or a culture with an actual heartbeat, and into the work that sets your soul alight.
The next flight is scheduled to depart on Tuesday 3rd August with our first live coaching call.
Gates close Sunday 25th July, will you be on board?
