Returning to work following maternity leave!

It only seems like yesterday that I left the office for the last time before having my daughter – I can’t believe 9 months have past and in just under 2 months I’ll be walking back through those reception doors and up to my desk on the first floor.

I am a little nervous about returning, mainly due to the business going through many changes since I left and because technology has moved on so much, even in less than a year. But the biggest anxiety has got to be how my husband and I will survive financially, as we also have a little boy who is 3 and we will therefore be paying out for two lots of nursery fees.

This is where the Better Womens Network comes in!

A friend of mine, who joined the group a couple of months ago, recommended them to me and I am very excited about the opportunity to earn an extra income, from the comfort of my own home and around family life. I am determined to make a success of this new venture and I am very focused on making the next couple of months, before returning to my day job, really count. Not only do I intend to be making some good money but I am also keen to learn as much as I can about online marketing, and the skills I learn from the Better Womens Network can then be transfered back to my day job. And who knows if things really kick off ,which of course I hope they do, maybe being part of the Better Womens Network will become my day job one day.

The great thing I have found about the Network so far is the support you get from all the other ladies – looking through their blogs/profiles and Facebook updates has really inspired me and I am already proud to be a part of the team. I feel very empowered but am under no illusion that success will be handed to me on a plate, as long as I put the effort in, the benefits will soon follow, but the key being I don’t have to spend hours and hours a day, a little time and effort will go along way. AND the biggest beauty is, as long as I have my laptop and an internet connection I can even put the hours in, before the rest of the house gets up!
