I was formerly a Finance Team Leader in a reputable multinational company, whose work revolved around figures, churning (endless) month-end reports and meeting deadlines and KPI. I spent excruciatingly long hours in the office and at times, worked until the wee hours at home. It was a luxury whenever I could devote time to myself and family.
Family comes FIRST. Juggling between family and work, I always endeavour to achieve the perfect balance.
My biggest wish is to become a work-from-home mum. So, one day, I told myself this: I would pursue something creative that simultaneously, allows me to dedicate more time to my family. I want to be there when my three precious pride and joy grow (and yes, fast they grow indeed!), witnessing their every milestone in life.
I begin to dabble in internet marketing as I believe this is THE way forward for me to fulfill my dream. Technology is fast-changing and constantly evolving; there simply is no limit to creating something innovative. As the saying goes, the possibilities are endless!
I have a BIG dream and it is to aid as many mums as I possibly can to achieve the BEST of both worlds – a fulfilling career to call their own, without sacrificing quality time spent with the family.
This has inspired me to start Career Mums Club (CMC), a supportive community website for mums that is committed in:
- Promoting work-life balance (hence, bridging any distance with the family)
- Providing ideas and enabling sharing of information (such as how to start a virtual business, ways to become mumpreneur, etc.)
With the creation of CMC, I hope to reach out to both working and stay-at-home mums alike. Whether it is opting to be fully home based, or taking on a different career path, together we turn action into fruition and attain our goals in life!
HOW TO GET THERE?
Mums living in the digital age are indeed a fortunate bunch as there is never a dearth of information and resources ranging from pregnancy tips to childcare, parenting, cooking ideas, etc. You name it and the internet has it, easily and readily available, right at your fingertips.
There is however, a lack of career networking websites dedicated to support mums. Moving forward, I plan to develop CMC as:
- An engaging online community website
CMC will emphasize to mums the influence of social media, how to successfully leverage and effectively navigate it to build a thriving online business
- A gathering hub for mumpreneurs
CMC will serve as a platform to build network, cultivate relationships and provide mentoring, whereby experienced mumpreneurs can share their success stories with newcomers and/or each other
- An advertising channel
CMC will act as a tool for all mumpreneurs to promote and showcase their business, potential employers to feature flexible job opportunities, etc.
SHARING IS CARING….
