More #workthatworks tips on how to find a job you love

As part of our #workthatworks campaign we’ve asked experts to share their top tips and advice on achieving a career you love and that fits into your life.

As well as practical advice on getting back into the workplace there is also some good tips on achieving work/life balance. Here are the ones we shared in the third week.

“Try to only have three things on your daily To Do list. It concentrates the mind. Where your attention is, is where things will flourish.”

--- Faye Dicker, Founder of Freelance Mum

“There is an abundance of talent and support at your school gate, connect with it.”

--- Louise Webster, Beyond the School Run

“Don’t say: ‘I’m JUST a mum’ Think of the years spent with your children as gap years and celebrate all the work transferable skills you’ve learnt as a mother.”

--- Juliet Turnbull, Founder and CEO, 2to3days.com

"Rethinking work patterns can be really positive. Before children 'work' was an incredibly intense week. When I decided to go part-time it felt like the end of a real career; that I'd somehow chosen motherhood over climbing the ladder. But less time in the office meant more time on social media and writing the blog. This has since become the start of a whole new career."

--- Sarah Turner, The Unmumsy Mum blogger

“Use Power Hours. Choose a goal, chunk it into a list of tasks, set the timer and spend 60 minutes getting it done.”

--- Hannah Martin, Talented Ladies Club

“Make your home desk out-of-bounds to little hands – work hours are too precious to waste on finding your pen every day.”

--- Lyndsey Miles, Freelance Parents

“Make time for you - you need to nourish yourself to be the best you can be at home and at work. It’s not selfish, it’s essential.”

--- Sarah Archer, Co-founder of Career Tree

Rather than what’s new in 2019, we want to talk about what’s NOT new. Those unchanging, fundamental principles that underpin social media success.
