I am loving Sarah and Kevin Arrow’s 30 Day Blogging Challenge.
The Confident Mother is all about celebrating and loving life as a woman and as a mother. Everything I do and run is about helping you to create that feeling of confidence. For me that confidence comes from five elements: work, wellness, contribution, family and the feminine. My blog explores each of these five elements, but mostly it’s focussed on work because that’s what prompts most women to get in touch with me. All these five elements and more are covered in my book.
I’m on Day 9 in the 30 Day Blogging Challenge and today’s task is to do a round-up post.
In the last few days, this is what I have shared with you.

Do you want work that fits around your children?
I LOVED this story sent to me by one of my former clients – in fact it gave me goosebumps when I read it. I still remember our initial conversation in a local cafe about how she really wanted to go back to work but she wanted to enjoy work and to feel stimulated intellectually. When we first met, she just couldn’t see how such a job could fit around childcare. And now she is so happy. Click here to read.
Silent Sunday – Switzerland – Sunday
I love creative photography. This photo was taken a couple of years ago on a very hot day in Switzerland by the lake. I was experimenting with the settings as the camera was a birthday present. Click here to read.
