Is 2018 the year you do some f******* work?

We don’t think you’d need too many guesses to figure out what our New Year’s Resolution was this year here at Digital Mums. In fact it was the same one we had last year. That’s right, it was to get as many mums as we possibly could back into awesome flexible careers. To teach them the social media skills they need to find brilliant flexible roles and their version of Work That Works®.

And we’re pretty proud of how we’ve been doing - there are now over 1200 Digital Mums and just so many brilliant women working flexibly from home in exciting roles. But of course we want more of you than ever to have the opportunity of finding Work That Works®.

So that’s why today we’re launching our ‘is 2018 the year you find some f******* work?’ competition. That’s f for flexible as part of our #CleanUpTheFWord campaign.  

We are offering one of you the chance to win a free place on our Social Media Management Course  (cost £2399 incl. VAT). Of course we’d love to do more and this competition can have only one winner so, as another step to help us achieve our Resolution we’re also offering every single one of you £400 off our Social Media Management Course for our February  intake (which brings it down to £1999 incl. VAT). To take advantage of this, your completed application form needs to be with us by Monday 22nd January.

To enter the competition all you need to do is go on over to Instagram or Facebook and comment on the competition post. Tell us exactly why #WorkThatWorks and f******* work matters to you, and how this gift will make a difference to you in 2018.  You can check out the full terms and conditions here. Don’t hang about as we know we’ll get a lot of entries (and would love to choose you all!) so it’s only open until this Friday 19 January 2018.

If you’re new to Digital Mums or want to get a clear idea of how doing our training may change your life, check out Claire’s story. Claire was our winner in 2017 - we couldn’t be prouder to see how much her work life has changed over the last year since doing our training.

Winning the Digital Mums’  2017 competition completely changed my life. It could not have come at a better time for me, as I had not long been made redundant from my role as an Executive Assistant in banking. I had been juggling a full-time job whilst also looking after my 4 year old daughter, Matilda. Not always 100% successfully it felt like some days! The uncertainty of everything at that time was really difficult and, to top it off, I was also trying to mentally deal with my third miscarriage in twelve months.

I started the Social Media Management Course last February and at the same time I also decided to start my own Virtual Assistant business. Looking back now, I must have been mad to try and do both at the same time! 

The Digital Mums training helped me in so many ways, not least in rebuilding my confidence after making the leap to self-employment after redundancy. It deepened my knowledge of social media and I found a real passion for developing a social media strategy. I smashed all my targets during the training and I’m so pleased with how much I learnt. It required a lot of persistence and hard work but it was so worth it. 

Since graduating, my Virtual Assistant business, The Assistant Quarters, has gone from strength to strength. I get a real kick out of showing other small business owners how much impact a social media presence can have on their business, if they approach it the right way.

The business has grown quickly and I’ve now started working with another Digital Mum who was in my peer group. She currently supports one of my clients with their Twitter account. I’ve also had discussions with other Digital Mums’ who are in the wings, ready for opportunities as they come up.

The biggest highlight of the training has to be the amazing people I met along the way.  I was also incredibly proud to be nominated and shortlisted for the Digital Mum of the Year Award in the inaugural #DMCollective Awards in November. There are just so many amazing women amongst the Digital Mums community and to be celebrated like that was such a personal achievement!
