January is here, the kids are nearly back in school, and that means that the daily routines for some will soon become full of school runs and after school activities. And 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. It might be the start of the new year, but for many Mum’s and Dad’s it’s also a time to take stock and make some resolutions and plans for the year ahead.
Here are the top 5 reasons why it’s great being a Travel Counsellor when the children are back to school:
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 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. You can fit your work around your child’s day, as well as keeping to your personal and business schedule.
Get things done during the day
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 working day, you have more quality time to spend with family or friends.
