Welcome to the Parent Equation podcast series, full of inspiring stories from working parents who are passionate about designing a life that works for them and their families - having a rewarding career alongside a balanced family life.
"...someone said to me yesterday, in fact that in running your own business, 80% of it is probably the job you don't want to do (and) the 20% is your passion..."
"I've met countless parents, mothers and fathers who, on their return to work after having a child, have an absolute renewed passion and energy, way beyond before, because you know, there's suddenly a much clearer purpose as opposed to the work they're doing and why they're doing it, who they're doing it for, so actually, you can't underestimate that commitment."
ABOUT THE GUEST - NICKI FRESHWATER
Having spent the last 20 years working in HR, Nicki Freshwater has witnessed the roller coaster of being a working parent from both an employer and the parent perspective.
Following a lengthy period of running her own HR consultancy, Nicki has recently gone back into employment and talks about the ups and downs of juggling parenthood and a career through both.
Nicki can be found on LinkedIn as Nicki Freshwater and over on Instagram @travelhackswithkids sharing her tips and advice for making travel with children easier.
