From time to time, we all need a bit of inspiration. Do you ever wonder whether you are all alone in a big, bad world? Are you the only working mum struggling to make sense of it all, juggling work, social life and the challenges of bringing up your children? If we are all honest, we all go through these ups and downs and question the meaning of it all, so it is good to see how others operate, to give us a little bit of extra motivation to shake it off and resume the battle!
The social media phenomenon gives us the amazing opportunity to get to know people people more than ever before. Today, it is possible for us to peek into the lives of people we do not personally know and to increase our social network by mingling with mums like us.
We have scoured Twitter, one of our favourite social networks for some inspiring working mums. See if you can find some inspiration from these women’s tweets, but in the meantime why not use the vast power of the Internet to line up some online coaching to inspire you? Online coaching can be a significant powerhouse for you!
