Could a flexible work schedule help balance your work demands with your personal life? It just might.

To help you decide I’m sharing info on #NationalFlexDay, what flex work has done for me and my business, and Flexjob.com’s top 250 companies who have offered the most amount of flexible jobs since 2013.  Skip to the end if you want to check out the companies!

What #NationalFlexDay Is All About

In October the business world celebrated #NationalFlexDay.  You see four years ago, Working Mother magazine declared that every third Tuesday in October the business world should celebrate and talk about flexible work.  Sara Sutton, CEO of FlexJobs, calls it TRaD which stands for all the different types of flexible work such as Telecommuting, Remote work, and Distributed scheduled work.

So on National Flex Day you see big promotions around the net about allowing people to work where and when they can work their best.  It’s also an opportunity for you to research work flex and compare it to what your schedule is like now.

What Flexible Work Has Meant To Me

There was another big thing that happened to me in October.  I celebrated my fifth year of being in business!  It’s taken many audacious moves to support working moms.  We are not an easy bunch to say, “help!”  But for those that have, I’m extremely thankful that they’ve let me into their lives to help them out.  If it wasn’t for my work flexibility I doubt I could be helping working moms as much as I am.

Work flexibility has allowed me to get out the trenches of Corporate America.  This has allowed me to be more flexible when scheduling sessions with working moms.  My work flexibility has allowed me to be more creative in my writing because working rigid stressful hours in my previous IT roles suffocated it.  I am able to be more social and happier which can be contagious when talking with working moms or it can come out in my writing.  Work flexibility has freed me to be the best at what I do.  I can’t wait to see where the next five years take me.

How to Find Work/Life Balance Through Flexible Work

One of the best solutions to work/life balance can be a flexible work schedule.  But this solution is unique to every working mom.  Her career and professional values are unique and her family’s needs are as well.  So instead of jumping into the assumption that  flex work is right for you I invite you to begin a journey.

With flexible work comes big life challenges.  Some you can anticipate others you can’t.  To begin this journey, envision your next career move with a flexible work schedule.  If you can’t imagine it, how will you bring it about?

Think about how it would be to start your day, how the kids would behave and what their send-off would look like (because even if you have flexible work you’ll need child care so you can truly work).  Next, envision your home office or what your next office would look like.  Last, think about how your day would end.  Then keep playing that vision on repeat in your mind. Let the details get more and more vivid so that when you look back you’ll think, “It’s just what I imagined.”

How To Research If Flex Work Is What You Need

Now it’s time to research how you can “lean in” and have work flexibility.  Start with Remote.co, a site that educates companies how to implement work flexibility.  They are launching a Q&A site for remote workers to share how they work remotely.  Here’s my site with my story to help with your research.

Next, check out FlexJobs’s blog to learn more about work flexibility, job searching, work/life balance, and the research they’ve done both with companies and people like you.

Last, talk to people in your network who have a flexible work schedule.  How did they make that happen?  What obstacles did they overcome?  Last, ask if you can reach out again if you run into any challenges.
