Invest In Yourself This September

543

Following on from the success of our ‘Find A Job You Love’ and ‘Business Start Up’ workshops in #knowvember with lovely Jane from Successful Mums, we are delighted to announce a new extended 4 hour version, exclusively for MGF – ALL PROFITS TO BLISS.ORG.UK.

September is a great time for self reflection. For many of us, our houses become a bit too quiet as our youngest heads off to school for the first time. For others, our school run days come to an end as primary school becomes secondary and our lovely little children will no longer be seen in public with us. Maybe, your child is older and is off to university or work or maybe, seeing everyone else buying their school shoes reminds you how quickly your baby is growing and how they will heading off to school sooner than you’d like.

Or maybe you simply find yourself with the time and space to think about your own future. Whatever your situation, these workshops will give you the information, confidence and support needed to take the first steps to either beginning, changing or restarting your career.

These workshops are exclusive to MGF and delivered by Jane Knight, qualified teacher, coach and career advisor and creator of Successful Mums – a unique training organisation, that has supported over 3,000 mums with their journey back to work through career advice and training courses. You can read more about our previous workshops and how they inspired our very own MGF-er, Donna Ford, to leave her job and start her own blog Skirting Boards and Chandeliers.

If you’ve spent time in a job that’s no longer working for you, or out of the labour market, or working for someone else when you have a passion to do something for yourself then this is the time for you to invest in yourself and make changes to your career that will change your and your family’s lives.
