The Work and Family Show – Feb 21st and 22nd

work and family

21st & 22nd February 2014 – ExCeL London

I am often asked “How do you manage a business, working from home full time and a family?” and more frequently, “How can I?”. The first ever Work and Family Show which has been sponsored by My Family Care and Sky Broadband Shield has been set up to help working parents with that all important work/life balance.

Sadly I am unable to go because I love the idea of this show and would enjoy the opportunity to see it first hand and report back directly about how it went however for those who are able to attend it could very well be one of the best personal and professional decisions you will ever make.

The show is all about giving you the information you need to take those first steps into self-employment or for those already experienced in working for themselves, additional opportunities and invaluable information.

The Work & Family Show will include the following dedicated areas:

  • Recruitment & Employers – Work Opportunities (sponsored by workingmums.co.uk)
  • Career Advice & Personal Development – Education & Advice
  • Image, Style & Media Resources – Personal Branding & Development
  • Family Services, Enablers & Networking – Support Systems
  • Franchise, Self-Employment & Start Up Business – Going it Alone

Tickets are available from www.theworkandfamilyshow.co.uk from just £12, and people coming to the neighbouring Baby Show will have free entrance*.

Opening times:

Friday 21st February: 9.30am – 5pm (trade and press entry from 8.30am on Friday for a networking breakfast)

Saturday 22nd February: 10am – 5pm

The Average Lunchtime When You Work From Home

  1.  Run downstairs and put the soup maker on (ingredients prepped and thrown in when the kids were having breakfast this morning).
  2. Do veg for tea (I would usually put the slowcooker on now but I have batched cooked meals ready to just heat up).
  3. Put the washing in the dryer and a fresh load in.
  4. Clean hamster out.
  5. Realise the f***ing hamster has escaped from his ball while you’ve sorted his cage out.
  6. Spend 15 minutes looking for Yoda (the hamster) who you find chewing on the back of the sofa.
  7. Eat soup, wash up, run upstairs to get back to work.

Ta daaaaaa!

 

Is it just me that has a lunchtime (whole day) like this?
