Name: Kezi Levin
Number of children: 7
Job title: Managing Director Sock Ons
Duties: Product Design, Strategy, Marketing, Advertising, Sales and lots in between!
Hours: 9am – 12:30, 2-3pm and 9pm-11pm!
Childcare arrangements: All at school or nursery (albeit 4 different locations).
What I love about work: Gives me an outlet to be creative and deal with rational adults (most of the time!).
What I find difficult is: Not having enough hours in the day to do everything.
My working life would be easier if… It wasn’t so disrupted by school pick ups and drop offs.
Work/mum life balance: I am so blessed to have a job that I love and can work around my children. I am able to drop / pick up from school and be around at the times that they need me the most. Working from home makes this possible and I work when my kids are at school and in the evenings when they are asleep.
How having children has changed the work I do: They inspire my designs – all the products I have designed I wished were available for my kids. They have taught me how to be persistent and not take ‘no’ for an answer!
Fantasy job / If I wasn’t doing this, I’d be… Working for a ‘real’ city design firm.
Mojomums helps mums get their mojo back – what advice would you give to mums who feel they have lost theirs? Go with the stage of life you are in – being a mum is such a blessing and work with it instead of fighting it.
