Should you baby proof your career? Should I have kids? And just how much is it gonna f*ck up my life and career? Somehow this is a question that seems to be popping up more and more often the closer you get to the age of 30. We’re living in an age where both women and men want to have both, career and a family – but how the heck are we going to do it? When I found Caroline’s Book, Baby Proof Your Career, she answered a lot of my questions. So I decided to invite her on to the podcast.
Listen in to hear about:
- Why should I baby proof my career
- How is having a baby going to affect my career
- Caroline’s story of how an unintended pregnancy impacted her career
- Deciding whether you want kids at all?
- When is the best time to have a kid?
Caroline is the Babyproof Coach, on a mission to empower and support female lawyers to progress their career and plan, start or grow a family at the same time. She is an international keynote speaker, author, and host of the recently launched Babyproof Your Career Podcast and also the mother of 4 boys.
As an ex-City lawyer with 9 years’ experience at Allen & Overy and Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton, Caroline Flanagan knows exactly what it’s like to want a successful legal career and a family, and feel anxious about how to make the two work. Caroline draws on her legal experience, her 15 years’ experience as a working parent and her 11 years’ coaching and speaking experience to bring you tools, strategies, and insights that will help you thrive at home and at work.
If she doesn’t have the answers, I don’t know who does.
