Meet the Successful Mums team: Carmen
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be taking you behind the scenes to introduce our Successful Mums team. First up, it’s Carmen, who runs the Job Board.
Carmen is the unflappable presence behind our Job Board and loves nothing more than matching forward-thinking businesses with their perfect Successful Mums. A mum-of-two, based in Greenwich, she somehow also finds the time to run her own business, selling beautiful wallets and handbags.
What do you enjoy most about working at Successful Mums?
Feeling part of a team! I work from home – which is great because I don’t have to worry about commuting and I can manage my time according to my day – but I never feel isolated. I meet up with Jane and the team regularly, everyone is very supportive and they’re always available to chat.
What’s your best work-life balance tip?
Setting boundaries is really important. And if you don’t have enough time to juggle it all, don’t feel like a failure: there comes a point where no one can do it all. I try to set aside a few hours in the morning to work. This gives me a little bit of discipline and time to then do my other job in the afternoon, running my Etsy shop, pureinnocentlondon.
