Back to School: three little words that conjure up so much. When you are a kid, you think about backpacks, number two pencils and soggy tuna fish sandwiches. As an adult, even if you aren’t going back to school, September always feels like the beginning of the year. We refocus at work after having a lazy August, break out the fall wardrobe, and start planning for the upcoming quarter.
I work from home and have certain rituals which start my Fall back-to-work routine. I have found September to be a great time to sharpen your pencils and update your skills. A few things I plan to do this fall are:
* Set Goals: time goes quickly and setting deadlines has helped me to structure my day/week/month.
* Keep current: I will keep up-to-date on my industry (moms and babies and careers) by bookmarking key websites and blogs and perusing them each day.
* Network: working from home sometimes makes you feel cut off from the outside world. I plan to get out more this fall to industry events/conferences to network more.
* Utilize social media to promote my business: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn. I am on all of them, but know there is a lot more I can do to promote myself. Check out Dan Schwabel’s book Me 2.0, which is on my fall reading list.
What are you planning to do this fall to get your career in gear?
Pamela Weinberg is co-author of City Baby, the best selling NYC parenting guidebook. This indispensable resource for parents, written with Kelly Ashton, has been called “The Bible for New York City parents.” City Baby answers the many big and little questions that expectant and new parents ponder. The fourth edition will be available fall, 2010.
With focus on pregnancy to pre-school years, this easy-to-use guide offers sage advice on the many aspects of bringing up a child in New York City. Friendly and informative, it guides parents on how to find and hire your nanny, select a pediatrician and the pros and cons of a doula; where to find the best bargains on baby clothes or that one-of-a-kind crib; where to hold a birthday party on a budget; and many other issues that often confound the new and not so new parent. An added extra, City Baby offers busy New York City parents many “insider” tips designed to save time and aggravation. Publisher Rizzoli has expanded the City Baby franchise to Brooklyn, Chicago, and Los Angeles with more cities to follow.
In addition to writing City Baby, Pamela is a contributor to the Nycmomsblog.com where she writes on parenting and mom related topics. Pamela is a frequent speaker on baby-related topics in the tri-state area. Pamela’s presentations include: ‘Ten Great Things to Do with your Baby in New York,’ ‘Tips for Traveling with your Baby,’ and ‘Best Infant Classes in New York.’ She also speaks to expectant mom groups about a wide range of topics -including shopping strategies, childcare, and adapting to new motherhood - that confront pregnant women in New York.
Pamela’s latest venture is Mind Your Own Business Moms . Founded last year by Pamela and Barri Waltcher, MYOBMoms is a business dedicated to helping moms return to the workplace. Pamela and Barri are currently teaching a class entitled ‘Redefining your Identity after Motherhood” at NYU-SCPS. In addition, they frequently address women’s groups, run seminars and counsel individual clients.
A graduate of Brandeis University and mother of a 16 and 13 year-old, Pamela lives in New York City with her family. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
