Behind every great woman there’s a few extra hours in the day
We’re not talking about New Year’s resolutions here. Not ones that barely begin on January 1st and promptly end on January 2nd. You don’t need to join the gym… Where’s the fun in that? You can still eat carbs… There’s masses of fun in that. We’re not going to ask you to be a better person (we already know just how great you are). We’re talking about helping you to become the best version of yourself you can possibly be.
What’s the saying? Behind every great man there is a great woman. Here’s a new one for you: Behind every great woman there’s a few extra hours in the day. We’re not talking about time travel–we are talking about the thousands of care providers on Care.com who can take some of the strain off you. One that allows you to go out on date night every so often (dust off that little black dress), one who keeps your children happy and healthy whilst you are at work, one who keeps the house looking in tip top shape, maybe one that cares for your ageing parents, or one that makes sure the dog gets all the walking it needs. We’re offering you perhaps the greatest commodity of all time.
Admitting help is the key
You will have seen those glamorous magazine covers with Victoria Beckham, or Angelina Jolie, or Sarah Jessica Parker–mothers to small armies but looking pretty, near perfect all the time. We can reveal to you just how it is: These mothers manage to look catwalk ready 24/7. Drumroll… Childcare! Behind every hot hollywood-mother is a childminder. Simple as that.
They work hard and so do you. This isn’t just about rewarding yourself for hard work though, it’s about making a positive change, taking a step in the right direction. “I’m tired, stressed, snappy, grumpy”. Whatever it may be, now is the time to make that change.
You might think you don’t have the funds for any extra help, but that’s not always true. It can be far more affordable than many imagine.
Alison Carter, an interior designer and mother to two young children, made that change: “I was so delighted when I found Care.com. I’m a busy working mum, and the whole prospect of finding a new carer was not one I was looking forward to, but Care.com made it so easy for me. It was free to sign up, and free to post a job, making it economical and efficient to find care.”
Don’t be daunted by the prospect of hiring help, we’ve got stacks of information to guide you safely through the entire process. “Before corresponding with the providers I was able to read articles on the site that gave me tips on how to interview, and questions to ask. These articles were invaluable to making the process successful.”
So let’s say cheers to a new year and a new you.
