From time to time, we all need a bit of inspiration. Sometimes we can feel as if we are on our own in this difficult and demanding world. Could it be that you are the only working mum who is struggling to find a way forward, battling to balance social life, work and the difficulties of bringing up children? If we are all honest, we all go through these ups and downs and question the meaning of it all, so it is good to see how others operate, to give us a little bit of extra motivation to shake it off and resume the battle!

Due to the social media revolution, we are able to interact with others in such a positive way. Now, we are able to take a glimpse into the lives of complete strangers and to really expand our social circles by interacting with other, like-minded mums.

One of the best social networks is, of course, Twitter and we have looked for some inspirational working mums within. See if you can find some inspiration from these women’s tweets, but in the meantime why not use the vast power of the Internet to line up some online coaching to inspire you? Thankfully, professional coaching can be a vital tool in your arsenal!
