Whether you call yourself an entrepreneur, freelancer, contractor, solopreneur, or biz owner, we are all facing a serious challenge: planning your maternity leave (and a smooth transition back to work) can be messy and confusing when YOU are the boss.
Pregnancy + working for yourself places us firmly on the margins of social safety nets with little to no protection. When it comes to maternity leave, our financial, emotional, and health needs are pretty much left up to our own devices.
We are left vulnerable and exposed at a time in life and business when support matters the most. And it can be terrifying. It’s time to find other business owners in the same shoes, and be guided, together, in figuring this out.
This workshop is for pregnant entrepreneurs (or those planning for pregnancy in the near future) who are seeking the type of strategy, customized support, and community you would build into any business transition.
You will develop:
Your tailored maternity leave plan and support in mapping out your time off and return to work
An action plan for the systems and support you need to babyproof your business
Relationships with other local business-owning moms-to-be to help you develop the support network that will carry you through the changes ahead
We will also cover:
Guidance on how to connect to other motherhood related professionals you may need in your community (eg. lactation consultants, counselors, physiotherapists, childcare providers etc)
Clear vision for who will be part of your (business and personal) postpartum network and how family and friends can help you
