Author AntoniaÂ Chitty; a busy working mum who alsoÂ has a website Family Friendly Working; has been working flexibly since having her daughter Daisy in 2002. She says, â€śI looked at the skills I had and how I could apply them.” Antonia now combines writing non fiction books with business consultancy and mentoring. Alongside this, Antonia is mum to D, J and K. She says, â€śItâ€™s not always easy running your own business and being a mum at the same time. I couldnâ€™t do it without my partner, David. We both find there are never quite enough hours in the day to do everything, and you may find me typing in the train on the way to a meeting, making the most of every moment I get. But I wouldnâ€™t change the way I work. I get to spend time with the kids, choose my own hours, and be there for events at school. I have the flexibility to adapt if one of the children is sick. Work-wise, I get to choose a range of interesting projects, and still love what I do.â€ť
We were delighted to read this review on our MyÂ Life PackÂ® personal organiserÂ byÂ AntoniaÂ on her Family Friendly Working website on getting organised for life:-
” Was 2014 an outstanding year for you, or was it lined with disasters? If youâ€™re hoping for a fresh start in 2015, have a look at My Life Pack. It is a single ring bound book, designed to be a repository for all your personal information, covering 10 areas:
- Personal Data
- Household Information
- Address Book
- Finances â€“ Savings & Expenses
- Children & Dependants
- Digital Footprint
- Employment & Self-employment
- Will & Funeral Planning
An enormous amount of thought has gone into this pack, and it will take you some time to fill out.
Perhaps set yourself a goal of setting down everything you need in a section each week. It may make you think about issues that you have yet to address, such as your own will and funeral. So, this isnâ€™t a very light hearted recommendation for the start of 2015, but it is definitely for you if you feel that your life has been a bit out of control and you are looking for a way to organise it again.Â My Life Pack retails for ÂŁ44.95 and is available fromÂ Â www.mylifepack.co.ukÂ ” Antonia Chitty, Family Friendly Working.
My Life Pack personal organiser does get users to think about their will and related matters inÂ Section 10 ofÂ our one stop manualÂ but it’s also on handÂ to saveÂ time, money and stress in users daily lives when managing their paperwork, household and life admin over the 10 categories.
