I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Mom Corps YOU. I received a free trial to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
As a mom who has stayed in the work force almost the entire time I’ve been a mom (I took 6 weeks off with baby 1, about 5 months with baby #2 and all of 5 days with #3), as well as being the financial manager of my house my entire adult life, I felt like I was pretty in touch with all things working world or finance related. But I’m amazed by how much I continue to learn and be reminded of with Mom Corps YOU.
This month some of the valuable webinars featured at Mom Corps YOU include:
- ‘How to Build Your Personal Brand,’ about why building a personal brand is critical to your job search and learn a simple approach for creating your brand
- ‘Your Network is Your Net Worth,’ about how to build and leverage your network for job opportunities, career growth, counsel and more
- and ‘Ready, Set, Go: A Game Plan for Career Re-Entry’
I was excited to check out the networking webinar. In my day job I don’t do, or need a lot of networking but in blogging I have found blogging to be HUGE. Being known by the right people, for the right thing is huge. But I love some of the other insights on other ways having a good DIVERSE network can really impact your work. This is particularly true for me now as I add another income stream for our house hold by getting into a direct sales business. I have chosen this because I need the stability of my day job for reliable income and dependable benefits. But I need to add additional income to our budget so I have branched out with a company I believe in. For me my network has helped me hit the ground running. This webinar helped me also consider goals for the year. And reminded me to prepare a bit of an “elevator pitch” for my new business so I can quickly share with people who ask. So much good info about how ‘just doing a good job’ won’t get you where you want to go. You need to be proactive about the connections you make and this is often something that woman, especially have a hard time with.
