This week I had the privilege of sharing a coffee and jaffle with the crew from Society Melbourne, the Social Enterprise that was recently awarded The Grants Hub’s Social Enterprise Grant. Their team has certainly put in the hard yards and it was truly inspiring to hear what they’re now getting up to.
Founding a business and being a mum of young children typically do not go together. It breaks social expectations and starts conversations. It provokes judgement, and also encouragement. It leaves people thinking I’m crazy, or asking how I do it. At times, to be honest, it’s tough. So how does being a Business Founder and mum come together for me?
Today is Kristine's one year anniversary of working at The Grants Hub!
When we decided to advertise for The Grant's Hub first employee (Grants Researcher) we had no idea how successful the online, remote recruitment campaign would be. We received applications from exceptional candidates around Australia. We advertised online through our website, social media pages and subscriber list. We shortlisted and conducted interviews via Skype.
Lately, if I'm really honest, I've been feeling tired, uninspired and bogged down by the day-in-day-out of running a business. So I took a break last week. It's the first time in 5 years that I have taken more than one consecutive day completely off work.
Our Capacity Building Coordinator, Lesley Harris, was recently featured by the CBR Innovation Network for her work in founding Capital Giving in the ACT.
