KIDS BACK IN SCHOOL? WHY BEING A TRAVEL COUNSELLOR IS GREAT FOR BUSY PARENTS

January is here, the kids are back in school and the daily routines for some have become full of school runs and after school activities. Plus of course, let’s not forget everything else that needs to be done throughout the day. Most parents find it tough trying to fit their children’s schedule around their work life and so their diaries go into overdrive. January for many Dubai Mum’s and Dad’s it’s also a time to take stock and make some resolutions and plans for 2019.

Here are the top 5 reasons why it’s great being a Travel Counsellor when the children are back to school:

Total Flexibility

Working around your child’s schedule can be tough and when the school run is added to the equation, it can get even tougher. Being a Travel Counsellor means you have total flexibility at work. You decide what hours you work, when you take your breaks, and when you start and end your day. For many Travel Counsellors, this flexibility in work is the most important thing as it helps them to fit running a successful business around their family life.

Spending time with the kids

Children’s lives are always pretty jam-packed, between after school activities, playdates, sports days or even sick days — being a Travel Counsellors means you can always be there for your kids.

Work at your own pace

Don’t let office hours hold you back. As a Travel Counsellor you set the working routine that works for you, your family, and your clients. Working 9-5 isn’t the ‘be all and end all’. Find out when your most productive hours are and go with that.

More time for yourself

To be fair, many parents want to celebrate when the school term starts again and another reason why it’s great being a Travel Counsellor is that you have more time to dedicate to your business, yet you don’t need to give up your favourite hobbies. As mentioned, you have total flexibility, so you can fit your work around your child’s day, as well as keeping to your personal and business schedule.

Get chores done during the day

Hear us out — when you work from home and you have a few minutes to spare here and there, it’s great to get the small jobs done and out of the way. This means, when you do finish your business side of the work day, you have more time to spend with family or friends.
