In this podcast I talk to inspiring women who have shaped their own path and found work that works for them. These women have taken control of their life and career, overcome challenges, and embraced change. What makes these women inspiring is that they are just like you and I. We all have the power to make choices about our future. This can often mean stepping outside our comfort zone and being brave. But with the right planning and mindset, we can all have a go at creating a life that works the way we want it to. Are you feeling stuck, disengaged, unmotivated? Are you in a job that no longer feels meaningful?Are you trying to find a way back into the workplace after taking some time out - such as a sabbatical or looking after your children? In this podcast I will also provide my own thoughts, insights and guidance on how to start managing your own career next steps. #careerchange #returntowork #motiviation #inspiringwomen #gettingunstuck

    Ilona shares her insights about what she's taken from experts in learning about ourselves, and how she continuously reflects on where she's going with her career, what is her inner voice telling her, and what feels right.

    She shares her big revelation of 'what possibilities open up when you reframe your situation to be AND, rather than OR??'

    Episode 3 - Liz Willetts - Investing in Women

    Episode 3 - Liz Willetts - Investing in Women

    This week I talk to Liz Willetts, founder of the Investing in Women job board.
    A mum of two young children, Liz started her business - Investing in Women - after being made redundant during the pandemic. Liz recognised that she was not alone in trying to find work that was going to work for her. She took her experience in recruitment to create the business idea of a job board that ONLY allows job adverts that offer flexible and/or part-time work.

    Would she have done this if she hadn't been made redundant.. ?

    Liz shares her challenges and her wins, and all with such positivity. Take a listen for some inspiration!
