Karen Cureton, Director Cureton Consulting

Name:  Karen Cureton

Age:  54 eek!

Number of children:  1

Job title:  Chief Socialite

Duties: Social Media trainer and Manager

Hours: too many to count

Childcare arrangements: Mum and Dad relocated from North East

What I love about work: Variety, no routine, flexibility

What I find difficult is: Saying no to people who I can help!

My working life would be easier if…I had a clone

Work/mum life balance: Poor but trying to change it, every day is a battle, I should be at the gym when I am writing this 🙂

How having children has changed the work I do: I had a very high profile corporate role and in truth I have completely reinvented myself. I now do a role that largely can fit around family life meaning I can be with my son when he wants me to be – although at 12 that’s likely to change soon!

Fantasy job / If I wasn’t doing this, I’d be… In business with my husband travelling the world

Mojomums helps mums get their mojo back – what advice would you give to mums who feel they have lost theirs? Get a coach or mentor, put a default diary space each week to do something for yourself even if it’s just a half hour walk.

Anything else? Trust your gut instinct, it’s rarely wrong!
