My typical day (Pre-Covid 19)

Before the Coronavirus outbreak, I’d start my mornings by dropping the children off at nursery. After that, I’d get on with my day which involves face-to-face consultations with clients.

My typical day now

Things are different now. With schools closed, I look after my 2 children all day, mainly in the house or the garden with a brief trip to the local park. Client sessions are currently virtual, via Zoom, during my children’s nap times or in the evenings.

My best (remote working) tools

My iPhone, and coffee!

How I stay motivated

I make sure I get dressed with intention every morning. Studies have shown that this makes you more productive for the whole day! I choose to wear my “wow” colours (colours which complement my skin tone) close to my face. I feel more energised and motivated when I know I’m wearing my colour palette, and my children even respond better to me!

My thoughts on remote working

It’s tough, but it’s been a huge learning curve for all of us, and I’m loving seeing how much innovation it has sparked, especially in small businesses. Flexible working is great for parents and this period has hopefully shown employers that working from home really can work for some of their staff.
