It's the weekend, traditionally a time when parents who work can switch off and spend some time with their kids. This Monday-Friday / 9-5 working culture we live in has meant that many parents feel like they never get to spend quality time with their kids until the weekend. ⁠ ⁠ And that is why so many people are turning to freelancing. It is not without it's own challenges, but freelancing means, particularly for parents, that you can work from home, avoid ridiculous commuting times and reduce astronomical childcare costs. And it means you can set your own hours which is an attractive option for juggling work and family.⁠ ⁠ So it’s no surprise that the number of female freelancers has grown 55% since 2008. New mothers moving into freelancing has shot up by almost 80% (compared to a 36% increase in men). There’s also a rise in women over 50 moving into freelancing as they find career options becoming more limited.⁠ ⁠ Now there is no doubt that freelancing can provide the ultimate flexible career however, we do see women struggle with some aspects of freelancing - it’s not all a walk in the park (at lunchtime)! There are common barriers that can get in the way of the flexible and enjoyable career that they want.⁠ ⁠ Which is why we've designed our new course, to help parents - particularly mums - to either transition into freelancing (quite a biggie to give up the 9-5!) or to help those who're on the freelancing journey make this flexible way of working actually work for them not against them.⁠ ⁠ If you're interested in learning how to become a successful freelancer, then hit the link in the bio to sign up for more info. You'll even get an invite to some free taster lessons and a cheeky little Early Bird Discount code!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #flexibleworking #digitalskills #workfromhome #worklife #training #newskills #futureproof #workthatworks #digitalmums #mumsofinstagram #instamums #onlinetraining #lifelonglearner #workingmums #freelancers #mumpreneur #freelancelife #freelancers #freelancer #freelancing #workingformyself #familyfriendly #selfemployed #dowhatyoulove #coworking #entrepreneurlife

We are showing solidarity with Sali today after watching her heartbreaking video about being abused online by women on Tattle Life. This website has been on our radar for a while as we are pretty tapped into the social media world and this site is set up to 'constructively criticise' public social media accounts. When we checked it out our first thoughts were: Why bother criticising these accounts the brilliant thing about public social media accounts is that you can simply choose not to follow them? Who has the time to spend on this shit? But the more we looked, the worse we felt. This wasn’t criticism. This was cyberbullying plain and simple. It seems like things have gone from bad to worse. So we thought we’d just remind women that we face enough shit from men, from society. Let’s not turn on each other. Let’s support each other. Let’s build each other up. Let’s face the discrimination together. Women, please, please, please support other women. #femalesolidarity #womenunite #feminism #womensupportingwomen #instawomen

Why has Kathryn got her #GameFace on?⁠ Because she's going to be talking about what it takes to become a successful freelancer in our 🆓 lesson taster this evening. And making the decision to freelance is no laughing matter or 'walk in the park' 🚶‍♀️(although when you do freelance that is definitely one of the benefits!).⁠ ⁠ People often assume that freelancing is an easy transition - and whilst for some people it can be - it really does take a lot of work, effort, determination and support 💪⁠ ⁠ We know women who have made their freelance career a success - but it's not by way of happy accident or because they were 'lucky'. The most successful freelancers out there work hard, have got the right mindset AND are often willing to invest in their development. 👉Whether that's buying and reading books, getting a babysitter so they can get out and attend local networking groups, attending conferences, investing in a co-working space or childcare, getting some coaching, or doing some further training. ⁠ ⁠ It also takes an honest approach to reflect on how much YOU are doing for your own destiny🤔. Yes that sounds dramatic, but are you expecting it to all land in your lap? Do you think that because you've made the big decision and given up your job, that you can transition over to what is essentially setting up your own business - no longer having the backup of a team / IT support and regular paycheques😬⁠ ⁠ We've helped over 1000 women become freelancers through our vocational social media training and so we're well equipped to help women become successful freelancers. 🤓In our new course, not only will you get practical advice and resources, but perhaps more importantly, you will get a wrap around coaching framework 🤗 to help you develop the right mindset to succeed as a freelancer🙌⁠ ⁠ Hit the link in the bio 🔝to register this evening at 8pm. If you miss it live you can get a replay to watch later (as long as you have signed up!).⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #flexibleworking #workfromhome #workthatworks #digitalmums #lifelonglearner #workingmums #freelancers #mumpreneur #freelancelife #freelancer #freelancing #selfemployed

📢 We have recently launched our brand new “Becoming a Successful Freelancer” course, which has been designed to help 'anyone' get more flex in their lives🙌⁠ ⁠ Freelancing allows you to set your own hours, doing the work you want to do with the people you want to do it with👌. However, freelancing comes with its own challenges and it can be a scary transition if you've never done it before😬⁠ ⁠ ☝️Well panic ye not - we have developed a clear and accessible framework to approach your freelancing career called:⁠ 👉KNOW 👉SHOW 👉GROW⁠ A clear path with steps to follow can help you to feel less overwhelmed👍⁠ ⁠ Hit the link in the bio 🔝to read more about how the framework helps you create #workthatworks and for our top 10 tips on becoming a successful freelancer👏⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #flexibleworking #digitalskills #workfromhome #worklife #training #newskills #futureproof #workthatworks #digitalmums #mumsofinstagram #instamums #onlinetraining #lifelonglearner #workingmums #freelancers #mumpreneur #freelancelife #freelancer #freelancing #workingformyself #familyfriendly #selfemployed #dowhatyoulove #coworking #entrepreneurlife

The beauty of becoming a freelancer is getting some #workllife balance and having more time for exercise and the family and dog walks and hair cuts💇⁠ ⁠ Yep - if you freelance and work from home, you can often combine work with times when otherwise you'd just be sitting chatting about the weather or how many weeks are left until Christmas (not that we don't all just need to sit & chillax for a bit sometimes!). 👉Plus it can often lead to chats about 'what do you do'? and 'oh my sister / brother / cat is setting up their own business and needs a .....'👌⁠ ⁠ As we launch our latest course - 'Becoming a Successful Freelancer' - we'd love to hear more about WHY you turned to freelancing and the most bizarre place you've found yourself working in the comments below👇⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #flexibleworking #digitalskills #workfromhome #worklife #training #newskills #futureproof #workthatworks #digitalmums #mumsofinstagram #instamums #onlinetraining #lifelonglearner #workingmums #freelancers #mumpreneur #freelancelife #freelancers #freelancer #freelancing #workingformyself #familyfriendly #selfemployed #dowhatyoulove #coworking #entrepreneurlife

🐦 Early Bird ending tonight! ⏰⁠⠀ We've worked with so many women who have gone on to have successful freelance careers. Training with us means you'll be in a like-minded, supportive community and by following our 10 week course - you'll be held accountable. THIS IS IMPORTANT! Did you know that the graduation rates of self-paced courses are around 8-13%?😳⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ It's also really important to recognise if you're committed to your freelance career and what you need to do to make it work🤔. All the successful freelancers we know have worked incredibly hard and keep striving to be the best they can💪. It takes commitment, effort and the ability to say "I need help with X" or "I need to improve Y" to truly succeed. The best freelancers also recognise their worth, are picky about who they work with AND appreciate that they have got to help themselves in every way they can to keep finding the best work👍.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ So if you're thinking about making the move into freelancing, or are just starting out, or have been at it for a while and feel like you want to take your freelancing to the next level, then why not join us on our "Becoming a Successful Freelancer" course👩‍💻⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Hit the link in the bio 🔝 to get £100 off the course and to join us in getting you the freelance career you deserve🙌⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #flexibleworking #digitalskills #workfromhome #worklife #training #newskills #futureproof #workthatworks #digitalmums #mumsofinstagram #instamums #onlinetraining #lifelonglearner #workingmums #freelancers #mumpreneur #freelancelife #freelancers #freelancer #freelancing #workingformyself #familyfriendly #selfemployed #dowhatyoulove #coworking #entrepreneurlife

If ever there was a week that felt totally apt for Digital Mums - it's this week. Not only is it #worklifeweek (flexible working ✅) but it is also #mentalhealthawarenessweek - a topic that is very close to our ❤️. 🤷‍♀️Why? Well we work with mums who are trying to get a work life balance and #workthatworks around family life and one way in which they do that is to become freelancers.... and here's the deal, freelancing can be tough on your mental health😬 There's the isolation you feel when you are your team, there's the anxiety over making enough money to pay the bills, then there's the crippling imposter syndrome to deal with - will people want to hire me? AM I good enough? DO I know what I am doing? All with the 'itty bitty shitty committee' that live inside your head😩 So why do we encourage mums to freelance then?🤔It is becoming increasingly obvious to us that the only way mums can get the flexibility they need is to work for themselves. Not saying that's right, but currently that is ONE ☝️way of getting some flexibility when all else fails. ➕Plus we know that learning has so many benefits - studying in a like minded community, developing your skillset, gaining confidence as you realise you CAN do it. All this can help beat many of the negatives and issues women face in the workplace🙌 Whilst we encourage women to choose a path that enables them to have a better #worklife balance - we're also very mindful when we design our courses and aim to ensure success is guaranteed by the structure we choose: community, support, variety and accountability. 🤓All meaning we have a graduation rate of 93% on our courses (compared with 8-13% on self paced training models). ANYWAY - if you're looking for some tips to look after your mental health as a freelancer OR you're considering freelancing but not sure if it's for you, then hit the link in the bio 🔝 to read our latest blog, . . . . . #flexibleworking #digitalskills #workfromhome #worklife #training #newskills #workthatworks #digitalmums #mentalhealthawareness #lifelonglearner #workingmums #mumpreneur #freelancelife #freelancers #freelancer #freelancing #workingformyself #selfemployed #entrepreneurlife

As #mentalhealthawareness week comes to a close, we wanted to remind you of our brilliant 🎙podcast on mental health for freelancers (although of course, the top tips apply to those who are self employed or work by themseves). CoFo Kathryn Tyler and our Social Media Manager Rhiannon Davies , discuss mental health and freelancing. The key challenges that face many freelancers or people who work for (& by) themselves are: ⠀ 😥isolation and loneliness; ⠀ 📴switching off; ⠀ 📥an increased workload; ⠀ 😵lack of structure⠀ 💸lack of financial security.⠀ ⠀ Using feedback from our experienced community and team members, 🗣we discussed why these areas are the cause of anxiety and stress for freelancers and share tips on how to overcome them.... including digital tips (because digital can be your friend as well as your enemy!)🤳 🎧Check out the episode over on Apple podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/mental-health-tips-for-freelancers/id1463094511?i=1000438688167 (link won't work unless you are in IGTV!) . . . . . #Podcast #inspiration #youarewhatyoulistento #businessadvice #Businessinspiration #liveyourbestlife #learnfromothers #listenandgrow #listenandlearn #instamums #mumssupportingmums #womeninbusiness #mumsinbusiness #womeninbusiness #mumsinbusiness #digitalmumspodcast #DMPodcast #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthawarenessweek #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #mha #freelancers #freelancelife #freelancing #freelance #workfromhome #remoteworking

👆THIS We can't remember where we first heard this phrase, but it resonated with us. We have worked with over 2000 mums and it never fails to amaze (and sadden😥) us how many mums suffer from this. You know the voices that come out and say, 😒"you can't do this", 😒"you don't know what you're doing", 😒"you're not as good as ..". 😒"you're not coping", 😒"you don't understand" and WORSE😒😒😒 It stems from imposter syndrome and the fact that as women, we're constantly battling to even get equality (never mind the top) with plenty of obstacle in our way😩. Sometimes though, the 'Itty Bitty Shitty Committee' can come out and convince you that you can't be, shouldn't be, don't deserve to be and any successes are pure accident😩 ☝️That's why we have now added an element of coaching to our latest course, "Becoming a Successful Freelancer". We've recognised that one thing holding many women back, from setting up on their own and breaking the 9-5 shackles, is that they don't have the confidence in themselves that they could totally do this💪. Having the right mindset is half the battle💪💪 So our new 10 week course will have a wrap around coaching framework, alongside: 👉Finding your unique USP 👉Building a strong personal brand and a killer 👉LinkedIn profile 👉Setting the right pricing strategy 👉Building sales funnels and marketing yourself online and offline 👉Managing clients All for £499 - that's less than £50 a week for a flexible career👍. And if you’re currently self-employed or run a limited company, don’t forget you can expense the course fee too🙌 Hit the link in the bio 🔝to register for more info and download an info pack OR if you want to kick the Itty Bitty Shitty Committee into touch and sign up (there are less than 30 places left!) - all the links are in the bio too! . . . . . #ittybittyshittycommittee #flexibleworking #digitalskills #workfromhome #worklife #training #newskills #futureproof #workthatworks #digitalmums #mumsofinstagram #instamums #onlinetraining #lifelonglearner #workingmums #freelancers #mumpreneur #freelancelife #freelancer #freelancing #workingformyself #familyfriendly #selfemployed #dowhatyoulove #entrepreneurlife

Oh yes... Monday. The day of the week where you feel like you've got plenty of time to crack on with everything 👍 and then before you know it it's Friday and everything is still lingering on your to-do list👎⁠ ⁠ Why is that🤷‍♀️? Is it a scientific phenomenon? Nope - it's a mums are too-damn-busy-nomenon😩. But we have a big vision here at Digital Mums and that's to support every mother to become a lifelong learner🤓 DESPITE most mums feeling that fitting in some learning could send all the plates crashing🤹‍♀️⁠ ⁠ There is no denying that learning something new is going to be a challenge for busy women and particularly for busy mothers.😬 But it can be done and it needs to be done. 👉 Learning delivers so many benefits that can be particularly powerful for mothers who can lose confidence, their sense of identity and purpose, outside of motherhood.⁠ ⁠ So ahead of the new 'Back to School For Mums' week launching after Half Term, 🗣️we're talking about the barriers to learning, and of course, some helpful solutions too🙌⁠ ⁠ According to our research, the biggest barrier is ⏰ time⏰ so hit the link in the bio 🔝to read 7 top tips to help you find time to learn something new👌⁠ ⁠ ☝️Do you have any great time saving tips? Share them with us in the comments👇⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #digitalmums #learningandgrowing #development #productivity #efficiency #instamums #letsgetdigital #digitalskills #careerconfidence #careerbreak #maternityleave #freelance #workingmum #lifelonglearning #lifelonglearner #lovelearning #lovetolearn #education #training #motivation #learn #backtoschool #study #businessowners

There's nothing better when you've got a bit of P&Q, than a ☕cuppa and a quick scroll though your phone.... 🤳 but whilst you're here you'll just reply to a couple of emails📧, oh and maybe order the online shopping🛍️, and actually just see what great auntie Brenda's cat is doing on @facebook 😺 and .... then two hours later find yourself watching GIFs about a sandwich eating parrot? (yes, he exists and he’s called Eric) 😆 Ahead of Back to School for Mums week 👩‍🎓we’re trying to help Mums with ⏰time management top tips and today's is all about staying focused😵 What we’ve learned from speaking to students who are really struggling with time⏰ is that they aren’t being as efficient as they could be. Students fall down the internet rabbit hole and when they fall, they fall deep😬 🔗Reading around the subject matter and clicking through link after internet link, can be the biggest time-suck of all. Use a bookmarking tool like @Pocket to save links for later and don’t read around the subject matter too much, because your course provider should have done all that hard work for you. 🚫Be careful of distractions while you study. Email, your phone, WhatsApp, even the cleaning and snack cupboard are all productivity killers and cause you to lose time and focus. Turn off all notifications on non-essential apps. 🤫Set up a particular area of the house to study in. Try and find somewhere that isn’t going to be distracting so perhaps face the wall rather than the house, or you may end up being distracted by the need to tidy up. If you find it a struggle to focus at home then why not get out of the house and work in a cafe or a quiet pub. Sound familiar? We'd love to hear from you so either share your worst internet rabbit hole moments or share your time saving tips in the comments👇 Link in bio 🔝to our blog on time saving tips for mums that want to get back to school... aka learn! . . . . . #digitalmums #learningandgrowing #letsgetdigital #digitalskills #careerconfidence #careerbreak #maternityleave #freelance #workingmum #lifelonglearning #lifelonglearner #lovelearning #lovetolearn #education #training #motivation #learn #backtoschool #study #learnin

Whoop! So great to bump into recent Foundation in Social Media Management grads, Klara & Mel of @marketinglabsurrey at the @wibexpo yesterday! Also so great to hear @karren_brady_official and @michellemone share their stories. Literally, nothing better than being in a room full of amazing women!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ @kathryntylerdm took to the stage to talk about building a strong personal brand to meet your career goals. She explained the role that your brand has to play in your career and how you can build an authentic brand to achieve your goals. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ But why do we keep 'going on' about this?⁠⠀ Brands don’t just apply to companies. They also apply to people. A personal brand is a mixture of your personal and professional history - your personality as much as your skills and experience. It sums up who you are and what you have to offer.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ A strong personal brand can support you to succeed in your current job, whether you want to be given more challenging projects, get promoted, or achieve a pay rise. It plays a key role in getting a new job, particularly if you have had a career break. It is also crucial for freelancers who have to hustle to find new clients and is key for female founders who are the face of their business.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you're keen to hear how building your personal brand on @linkedin can help you to become a successful freealcner, then we have a 🆓 lesson next week - link in bio to join us.⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #womeninbusinessexpo #empoweringwomenwithworkthatworks #empoweringwomen #workthatworks #impostersyndrome #whatisholdingyouback #confidence #empowering #empowerment #womensupportingwomen #mumssupportingmums #careers #careerbreak #maternityleave #freelancer #freelancelife #linkedin #toptips #webinar #freebie

Thought it would be good to end the week with the incredibly inspirational story of Mary Storrie because it is an excellent example of how tragedy can lead to hope.⁠ ⁠ For Mary and her family, the unthinkable happened one Christmas. Their daughter Rosie May was murdered at a friend's house while they were downstairs. ⁠ ⁠ This personal tragedy gave them the determination to do something extraordinary. To turn tragedy into hope and create a living legacy to their daughter. They want to give children in crisis the right to a future, one that Rosie May has tragically been denied forever. ⁠ ⁠ Hit the link in the bio to hear our podcast with Mary and find out more about the charity and their amazing work.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #charity #rosiemayfoundation #empoweringwomen #empowering #empowerment #womensupportingwomen #mumssupportingmums #instamums #instamamas #fromtragedytotriumph #Tragedy #InspirationalStories #inspirationalwomen #hope

We often see things quite differently to men, but we have to agree with Zig Ziglar on this one. Being successful has little to do with luck, but all to do with hard work and effort. Yep - we wish it wasn't always the case.. quite nice to sit back and let the good times role, but we don't know any successful females who haven't worked hard to be where they are today. ⁠ ⁠ So setting up, starting out or becoming a successful freelancer is not just all coffee and cakes at your laptop. There are so many things to consider and work hard to get right.... if you try and do it all yourself.⁠ ⁠ After helping over 1500 women set up as freelancers we know a thing or two about what you need to do to make this career choice work. We've taken all our know-how, a variety of lesson types, a supportive community and added a wrap-around coaching framework into our 'Becoming a Successful Freelancer" course. So whilst you'll still have to take the stairs, at least you can climb them much quicker on the course than flapping about by yourself trying to work it all out!⁠ ⁠ If you're interested in nailing your freelance career (whether you need help with starting out or have started and finding it a struggle) then you should join us on the course and put yourself one step ahead of the competition. ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #flexibleworking #digitalskills #workfromhome #worklife #training #newskills #futureproof #workthatworks #digitalmums #mumsofinstagram #instamums #onlinetraining #lifelonglearner #workingmums #freelancers #mumpreneur #freelancelife #freelancers #freelancer #freelancing #workingformyself #familyfriendly #selfemployed #dowhatyoulove #coworking #entrepreneurlife #niftyatfifty

No one should feel guilty about 'stuff'... ☝️but actually, you SHOULD feel guilty about NOT taking time to care for yourself. As a parent, you are stretched in so many ways but if you don't cut yourself some slack - you will invariably break😔⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ We asked our community for their tips on freelancing and wellbeing and we realised that many of these tips apply to us all - whatever our situation. 👉We should afford ourselves the 'luxury' of saying - what about me? It shouldn't be a guilt thing🙅. If you don't look after yourself, you'll not be able to care for those who do rely on you⁠☝️⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ One of our fave tips 😍came from our very own @beccajohns: ⁠⠀ "Make time to look after yourself too (in whatever shape or form that takes, yoga, walks, exercise, baths whatever). If you work for yourself the temptation is to spend every waking minute working (and if you're a Mum too you can end up just working and parenting) and to be mentally strong, you need to schedule time out for yourself. As a freelancer you are the engine of your business and as a mum you are the pivot of your family so if you go wrong it all goes wrong, so see looking after yourself as an investment in your business (and your responsibility to your family) and it's much easier to justify time for it!"⁠👏👏👏👏⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ We've got some more top tips on freelancing - hit the link in the bio to read🔝⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #flexibleworking #socialmediamanager #digitalskills #workfromhome #worklife #training #newskills #futureproof #workthatworks #digitalmums #socialmediamarketing #socialmedia #digitalmarketing #mumsofinstagram #instamums #onlinetraining #lifelonglearner #socialmediatraining #workingmums #freelancers #businessowners #mumsinbusiness #mumpreneur #smallbusiness #workforyourself

Helen Robinson, founder of @gifted_local completed our Foundation in Social Media Marketing course and is now excited about applying her learnings to grow her new business which connects people to creative businesses in their local area helping them to shop more sustainably😍⁠ ⁠ 🗣️ Helen says:⁠ "Although I’m from a marketing background so know quite a bit about all the different social media platforms and I’m an avid user myself, especially Instagram where I have an account I regularly post on, I didn’t feel I had the confidence to create a social media strategy for my new business which I could easily manage myself at home. I’m also extremely time poor ⏰ so needed as many tricks up my sleeve to produce and curate as much content as possible. Essentially, I wanted to smash it out the park from day one so turned to Digital Mums for help!⁠ ⁠ Whether you’re a complete novice or a serial social media user, I think the course has a bit for everyone to gain knowledge and confidence in creating and executing a social media strategy, whether that’s your own business or a larger organisation."💪⁠ ⁠ Our next cohort for the Foundation in Social Media Marketing will be running in September.

🙌WHOOP! We've made it - week one of starting / back to nursery/school done and dusted... hopefully without too much drama, tears and last-minute forgotten panics!⁠ ⁠ How did it go? Were you all 😭tears, snot and wobbily lipped or 😁happy waves, smiles and skips down the street?⁠ ⁠ Were you super organised 📝 or were you in the shops trying to buy school shoes, trainers, astro-turf trainers and football boots at 6.30pm the night BEFORE school started (like our head of social @mrssociable)?!😬⁠ ⁠ Did you upsize order everything mid-July 😏 (to be sure it fitted) or were you paying extortionate next-day delivery fees because you figured they'd fit into last year's uniform fine but discovered they'd had a growth spurt?🤑⁠ ⁠ Would your child pose for the traditional pic 📸or did you end up losing your rag because you couldn't get a lovely photo to post on the gram?😩⁠ ⁠ Whatever happened and regardless of whether you spent all day crying or all day celebrating, we hope your LOs started/went back to nursery/school ok and you at least managed 10mins of P&Q and a cuppa☕!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #backtoschool #startingschool #school #education #firstdayofschool #parenting #schooldays #mumsofinstagram #mumsofinsta #instamums #mums #tearsofjoy #tearsofsadness #sobbing #fridayfeels #fridayvibes #backtoschoolvibes⁠ ⁠ ⁠

It's Monday! ⁠ All the kids have started / back to nursery or school so if you're a freelancer, female founder or mum who works from home then it's now YOUR time to get back to it!👩‍💻⁠ ⁠ 🤹‍♀️After a long summer of childcare juggle and holidays, it's now time to focus and get working. Question is - what's the best way to do this?🤷‍♀️⁠ ⁠ We'd love to hear your #toptips for managing your time and working effectively👇. The start of the school year is a really great time for us all to pledge healthy work habits that not only mean we work efficiently and productively, but so that we can get some work/life balance💪⁠ ⁠ ☝️Our top tip (particularly for freelancers and people who work at home a lot) is to get out to your local coffee shop or workspace to help you feel like you are 'going to work'. 👉 Not only will you most likely meet some like-minded people, but you'll be away from those at home distractions so you can focus on the job in hand. Oh and you can often get a steady stream of coffee/tea and cake on tap🙌⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #freelancers #freelancelife #workingfromhome #producitivity #femalefounders #womeninbusiness #digitalmums #workthatworks #flexibleworking #mumboss #mumpreneur #digitalmums #workingmums #workingmum #instamums #mumsofinsta #digitalmumtobe #workingmumlife #dmcollective #motherhoodunplugged #motherhood #bloggermum #mummyblogger #workingmumslife #workingmummy #workingmother

Meet the first lucky winner of a place on our Foundation in Social Media Marketing! Laura is a mum-of-two based in Sussex, who 18 months ago quit the 9-5 (along with her husband) to run her own Ed Tech consultancy, LearnFox (@the.fantastic.mrs.fox). She wanted to create a more balanced and sustainable lifestyle for her whole family, where she could put her 13-year career working with corporate Learning & Development professionals on digital transformation projects to good use. The birth of her daughter sparked a drive to take control of her life and career and working as a team with her husband provided an opportunity to support each other with childcare showing their kids that both partners can fulfil their potential at home and professionally (and bash a few gender stereotypes at the same time)! Laura is also launching Life Fox (@my.life.fox) which is a new community and blogzine for career shifters, soul searchers and game changers looking to find their purpose and thrive. Focused on wellbeing and balance for the mind, body & soul, Laura plans to put her expertise to good use and work with wellbeing gurus to create online courses, podcasts and curated content to encourage a holistic growth mindset for your life. On winning the competition Laura says: "As a female founder, busy mum and business owner I have a lot to learn about social media marketing and very little time, so winning this competition is super useful for me! It’s also really exciting as I start to connect with and grow a thriving community of like-minded Life Fox folk!" If you'd like to join Laura on the Foundation course and learn the fundamentals of social media marketing but missed out in the competition, then we'd like to offer you a 15% discount on the full price.

🎉 #learnin is back!⁠ Earlier this year we launched our #learnin campaign and have shared some worrying data on the fact that adults aren’t learning - in fact adult participation in learning is the lowest it’s been for 20 years. And mothers, in particular, are struggling to learn😔⁠ ⁠ Through our 🎙️ podcasts and blogs, we heard all about the importance and benefits of learning 👉from earning potential👉to the ability to work flexibly,👉to improved mental health👉to improved relationships… and 👉 even finding a partner! But in order to get learning, women -and particularly mothers - have a whole load of hurdles to overcome🤹‍♀️⁠ ⁠ So this Autumn we will be focusing on the barriers that are stopping mothers from learning and will be focusing on helping them to overcome these barriers through useful content, 🆓 lessons and more🙌⁠ ⁠ If you have school-aged children you’ve probably just been through the back to school routine: new shoes, new uniform, smart haircuts and trying to get everyone into bed at a decent hour and out of the house on time😩⁠ ⁠ ☝️But now it’s time for YOU to go back to school. Yes, we will be launching a “Back to School for Mums” week this October encouraging mothers to learn something new, no matter how small. And to help you along we will be offering a free short course and some free taster lessons👏👏👏👏⁠ ⁠ The best bit about this? You have the perfect excuse to get some stylish stationery and a new notebook😂⁠ ⁠ Hit the link in the bio 🔝to sign up for announcements of Back to School week and of our new courses - including the 🆓 ones!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #digitalmums #learningandgrowing #development #productivity #efficiency #instamums #letsgetdigital #digitalskills #careerconfidence #careerbreak #maternityleave #freelance #workingmum #lifelonglearning #lifelonglearner #lovelearning #lovetolearn #foundationinsocialmediamarketing #education #training #motivation #learn #backtoschool #study #businessowners #LeanInToLearning

Not long to go until our Foundation in Social Media Marketing closes ready to welcome our September cohort on the 30th! We asked our most recent grads what they thought of our 10 week course and what they got out of it. Heather Paton works as a Programme Coordinator for Link UP London’s ReLaunch Programme who funded her place on our Foundation in Social Media Marketing course. She lives in Clapham with her family. “I am the Programme Coordinator for Link UP London’s ReLaunch Programme, which provides workshops to support women to return to the workforce following a career break. I was a qualified lawyer for many years, but after having my children I wanted to work in a different field. I joined the Foundation in Social Media Marketing course because I wanted to understand how to develop a good strategy to raise the profile of the ReLaunch Programme on different online platforms and to develop an online platform for the women who have participated in the ReLaunch Programme. Thanks to the course I now have a much better understanding of how social media enables businesses and charities to engage with their target audience as a sociable brand. I now feel more confident to create and curate quality content which is engaging and relevant. The webinars/live lessons were brilliant! The Digital Mums social media experts were knowledgeable, clearly providing lots of useful content and insights about effective social media marketing strategies. The practical case study exercises provided good opportunities to exchange ideas with the other students. I would definitely recommend the Foundation in Social Media Marketing course!"
