10 Career Tips for Women. Number 6

Number Six – Work Out the Baby Thing Before Your Hormones Kick In I am not, repeat not, telling you what to do re babies and careers. It’s a minefield depending on where you live, access to good child care, preferences, of you or your partner. There is no one way. What I do believe very strongly is that a radical rethink needs to take place re childcare.

We all need for babies to keep on being born and we all need those babies to have good, secure care and love.

I think there are many more alternatives than we currently have and I think men could play a bigger part, and that many want to. However, the gender divide is such that often the man is earning more and society expects that women will stop working and rear the children. Those pressures can create an irresistible force. Stopping work for a few years may be absolutely the right thing for you to do, but it may not be…

So, my tip is well before you get to the baby or no baby stage you think through just what you want to do (and your partner) and then plan for it. Do your research and plan your career moves accordingly. Once you find out that you are pregnant is not usually the best time to start having these discussions.

Jane C Woods

Women's Personal Development Specialist - Changing People, -

Hi, I’m Jane C Woods and I have an absolute passion for helping women achieve success in their lives. Be it the glass ceiling, the crystal maze, or very personal issues, I’m all about helping women achieve to their full potential and live the way they want to without being carbon copies of men. But I’m not about putting men down in order for women to get ahead, there’s plenty of room; I just want the guys to shifty up a bit… If my face looks familiar it's because I love Psychologies magazine (I've been buying it since the very first issue, such a good resource) and it's the only place I choose to advertise my courses. I write on women’s issues on my blog, www.changingpeople.co.uk, and am regularly featured in magazines, and on radio, but I’m probably best known for RenewYou. RenewYou is my one day personal development course for women. We have an international network of experienced, specialist women licensed to deliver it and empower women across the globe. Our goal is to reach one million women. It’s a big goal but… In 2013 we started with a single RenewYou specialist, me. Now you can find a RenewYou Courses across the UK, in the USA, Canada, Greece, Bangkok, Pakistan, South Africa, Belgium, with new countries being added all the time. My dream was to create a thriving and caring business on ethical, and dare I say, feminine terms, with a real community spirit of help and encouragement. And it’s actually happening with the support, expertise, and enthusiasm of my wonderful trainers. I think, (apart from my two lovely kids, a daughter and a son) that it’s probably my proudest achievement to date. Wonderful Changing People Women: One of the joys and privileges of my work is that I’ve connected with some really inspirational and wonderful women – from politics to entertainment to academia. They include: TV presenter, house fixer and matchmaker Sarah Beeny Amazing entrepreneur Sam Roddick of Coco de Mer Outspoken and entertaining academic Mary Beard Politicians like Siobhan Benita and Natalie Bennett Ex BBC broadcaster Miriam O’Reilly who bravely took on the might of the BBC- and triumphed A very rare interview with Sarah Montague, of the influential BBC Radio 4 Today programme I hope you like the posts and I hope they are helpful.
