In by 8 a.m. every morning, back by 8 p.m. every evening.

Co-Fyxers, the ultimate flexible Executive Assistant role

Posted by Holly on Oct 12, 2018 12:39:56 PM

Approaching the end of 2017, I knew it would soon be time to leave my 11-month-old daughter at nursery and head back into the ‘professional world’. No more days at the park, baby sensory classes, catching up with other baby mamas for lunch, or just having cuddles with my tiny pal on the sofa. However, I also knew I wasn’t ready to leave her and more importantly, she wasn’t ready either.

Each year, I make a host of New Year’s resolutions. Each year, I swear I will stick to them. Each year, most have folded by Easter.
