Off-Call 2017 Spotlight: Call Share & Collaboration
Being on call as a mother is hard. We have all found ourselves somewhere in between being the resentful who had to stop and the resentful who wish they could (stop or slow down). Slowing down or stopping to be off call as a sole proprietor can be detrimental to the family income so it’s often not an option. It often means you feel resentful or bitter that you had to leave your family, once again, to attend a birth. We have been there. We’ve been on the brink of throwing in the towel but instead channeled each others strengths, combined our skills and realized that as a team we can accomplish goals exponentially greater than being alone. Our clients are happier, our home is happier… we are happier. In this 60 min class we will explore the benefits of partnerships, picking your partner(s), client experience and sharing the workload.
