Start up love 💙 Have you heard of Puffling? They are a job-sharing platform that pairs up mums (or dads) in creative or ad-land to help them return to the workforce and land dream roles. A packaged duo of A+ talent to pitch out to hirers who are time poor and say they ‘can’t find good female talent’.
Good talent shouldn’t be under-utilised or pushed to the sidelines. And in fact 74% of Puffling survey respondents admitted to stress and anxiety around discussing a flexible arrangement upon their return to work. Not ok 🙅🏻
I had the awesome pleasure of meeting the dream team co-founders Sarah Parker (pic here), Lija Wilson and Mike Hill a few months ago, and they are a passionate powerhouse who WILL change the game.
Mike describes it “kinda like match-making, only everyone’s really busy balancing brand guidelines with school runs” 💙

Q: What's YOUR self talk like?
Q: Where can it change?
Q: Where is your self talk not serving you?
YOUR NOT ALONE !! I'm going to tell you what my self talk was like today !! They say to watch our self talk because what we think we create.
What ever we place our focus on is expanded in reality for better or for worse
So I seemed to be more aware of my self talk today.
My Passion & my Purpose is I love to help people. I always have, I have a caring heart, I feel I have a lot to offer!! And that is what's lead me to my career & business interests.
But my self talk today goes like this
Q: Am i REALLY following my passion?
Q: is what I'm doing in line with my passion?
Q: Am I really helping anyone?
Q: What am I actually doing?
Q: Can I do more?
Q: Am i reaching the right people?
Q: How can I be more in line with my passion?
Q: Am I making a difference? really?
Q: Am i fulfilling my passion / purpose?
I feel like I'm in a state of Limbo, that this part of My life is on pause until I figure it out, whatever I need to figure out. Maybe the universe is telling me I need it to?? Who knows ☺️ I'm sharing this with you because we are, in the end, all the same. We are human.
We will all have these talks with ourselves from time to time.
Thoughts of uncertainty, doubt, negative thoughts etc.
BUT it's what you do with them that counts.
In that moment, you have the chance to either stay there & dwell in them OR to learn from it & turn it around.
Acknowledge them & use them to grow.
But at the same time, don't beat yourself up about thinking those thoughts!!! "To love your weakness, negativity, and darkness is to accept half of who you are." — Bryant McGill
I don't know the answers to my questions with 100% certainty BUT I do know what my passion is & I know that I can learn from this self talk & something positive will come out of my reflection.
I choose Growth... Every time 🙌 #selftalk#turnitintoapositive#everyonefeelsit#TueadayInspo#gratefulheart#followyourheart#yourpassion#yourpurpose
