While in the US and other Western countries, flexible working has become a norm for most professional men and women, in India, the concept of flexible working is slowly picking up in the country’s job market. There are few organisations who are opting for flexible working professionals instead of full time employees. This has become a blessing for professional women, who otherwise have to give up their jobs for family obligations, maternal instincts or for any other reasons.
But what is flexible working?
Flexible working is an arrangement when an employee’s working schedule is customized to suit the employee’s needs and is an alternative to traditional fixed number of working hours. As a professional working woman, if you plan to opt for flexi-timing or flexible working hours, then you should know the various types of flexible working arrangements available and whether your employer provides those arrangements or not.
A career mentor is one of the upcoming jobs in the present day job market. With so many courses and subjects available and with different career options, most students require a mentor at some point of their time. This job profile has become very popular as one of the best work-from-home opportunities, especially for women. A career mentor is one who can help and guide students in the significant stages of their school and college lives, and make them successful in their lives.
When you become a career mentor and you are not working for any particular organization but you work as a freelancer and work from home, you need to put in more efforts to become a popular name in your circuit. It is like your own business and you need to make a mark of it as a successful and well-known mentor. Being a mentor means being a trusted advisor to someone.
How do you become a great career mantra?
Becoming a mentor isn’t quite as simple. There are two steps involved: you have to think your own career advancement and you also have to think of the career advancement of the person you are helping. You can deal with one or two or many mentees as per your capability but you have to teach them, guide them and help them to get ahead in life.
Here are a few simple and quick tips for creating a mutually beneficial and productive professional relationship.
- Be an easily approachable person for your mentee or student: A student will try to reach you at their time of need, at times may be in odd hours too. Be warm and friendly and show your interest to listen to him. Stop doing other things and give the student your full attention. When he or she meets you during the appointment time as scheduled earlier, do everything that can help him or her.
- Respect your student and her time: Your client is a student and it is obvious that he or she will be younger to you. But, just as you want your mentee to be prepared with her questions, problems, note book in hand to jot down important notes, similarly, you also try to show her the same respect and respect her time. Be prepared what you plan to accomplish during the meeting and the important points you intend to discuss. It is not necessary that there will be a rigid plan, but do keep in mind few possible questions and solutions in advance that will come in handy.
- Observe your mentee’s progress carefully: In addition to sharing wisdom and guidance, you also need to observe her progress. You need to pay attention to the skills and information she is struggling with and also those skills which she is mastering. Praise her when necessary. But never ignore her weak points. Focus on areas that require more attention.
- Be a good listener: You cannot help a student to reach a goal or destination, if you don’t find out yourself what those goals are. Listen to your student carefully, understand her and then do everything you can to help her get there. Listen closely to what she is saying, ask questions to know her deep within.
- Approach each student differently: Remember each mentee is unique. When you first start out, it is essential to take the time to assess your own style and approach for each student, and find out what kind of commitment you can and want to make for each of them.
- Know your mentee at a personal level: The relationship between you and your student is a very personal one. You work in your flexible timing and you can have as many as mentees you can handle. But the success mantra is that you should know each student personally. You cannot simply give some advice and earn money. You should try to develop a personal relationship with your student so that you stand out as an amazing mentor.

So you have made this decision to start working from home? You left your full-time job with the intention of maintaining a perfect work life balance and have decided to opt for a wonderful part-time job that you can do from home. It has been a trend coming up slowly in Indian job market for women to work from home as freelancers or in flexible jobs. However, it is not so easy as it sounds to be to work from home. After all, you have to manage both work and home, and in many cases, one most important thing gets neglected, and that is your “health”. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle while you work from home is very essential.
There are many ways a woman affects her health when she works from home. First of all, you tend to work on your bed, sofa, or in any position that you feel is the most comfortable position for you while working, but, it may not be an ergonomically sound position and good for your body.
Secondly, you have lots of food options available for you just in the kitchen and the fridge nearby. And most of the time you binge on that unhealthy snack. Thirdly, there is no interaction with anyone…you sit and work continuously with the intention of completing your work on time. All these can sabotage your health in the long run.
Let’s find out below how you can maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle while working from home:
- Create an exclusive office space: Designate a room or any corner of a room or your attic or your backyard solely for office work. Don’t let your bed or your couch be your office chair. Get yourself a proper office chair and desk with all desk materials and stationery so that you create a proper office environment.
- Create a soothing office environment: As you have complete authority on your work space at home, create a look that pleases you, create an atmosphere that soothes you, create an ambiance that allows you to work stress free and stay calm. This can be anything, maybe changing the color of the walls, making a seating arrangement in front of the window, using scented candles and so on. It’s your choice but try to make your work area soothing and comfortable.
- Invest in a good, comfortable chair: Make sure, the office chair is ergonomically designed and you are comfortable while sitting on it and working for long hours. An ergonomically designed chair helps you to maintain a posture that will prevent you from having back pain.
- Take small breaks in between: If your work-from-home job is a sitting job in front of the laptop, get up after every half-an-hour or one hour and take a 5-10 minutes break. Go out, walk few minutes on the corridor, stretch your body. Get some sunshine. Set a timer for this on your mobile so that you get the message tone of taking a break while working.
- Binge on healthy snacks: It is obvious while working you feel like munching something. Go for healthy food. Keep seasonal fruits with you. Eat dry fruits like almonds, walnuts. During summers, drink lots of fruit juices. Avoid drinking too much of coffee during the day. Keep junk food out of sight.
- Drink lots of water: This is very essential. Don’t forget to drink your 8 glasses of water. This will keep your body hydrated.
- Set a time schedule for your office work and stick to it: While working from home, many of us have the tendency of working at odd hours. But, it is advisable to schedule a time slot for office work and stick to it regularly. Make sure, you get your work done during that limited work hours and don’t try to do any other work during that time, unless and until it is very urgent. Avoid working on weekends and avoid working long hours.
- Schedule workouts/exercise time: Now, this is very essential for every one of us. Start your day healthily. Go out for morning walks, do yoga, do exercises, cycling, jogging in the early morning or late evening. Exercises should be part of your daily schedule. Oh yes, there are few exercises which you can do while on the chair if you are conscious of your bulging waistline.
- Sleep on time and have a proper sleep: Sleep is vital to your physical and mental health. You should be on your bed on time at night and try to get 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night to function your best the next morning.
Now, that you have decided to become a work-from-home mom, you being the mom and the caretaker of your family, your health is of prime importance and you should take proper care of it.

When we talk about Rural India, we still feel that Indian rural women are confined to their homes working day and night for their family, no education, no jobs, oppressed and neglected. While this is true for almost all rural Indian women, yet we feel happy when we get to know stories of women in the villages of India who are doing wonderful works for women empowerment. These women are still unknown to the rest of the world. But the kind of work they are doing for their villages needs to be spread. These are stories of inspiration and to feel proud of. Let’s check the stories of these rural Indian women achieving the impossible.
The rural Indian women of Sathyamangalam
Sathyamangalam is a small village in Tamil Nadu and the women of this village have always been victims of oppression and neglect since many years. But since the last 5 years, two voluntary organizations, ‘Signs’ and ‘Aide et Action International’ are providing training to rural women in handling video camera. These women are now using video cameras to depict the reality of their lives and to fight for their rights. In this age of mass media and technology, the video camera has become their weapon to fight against oppression. Various films have been shot on different stories, like as women’s rights, rights for people with disability, child labour, and equality across gender, caste, and class. These films are then shown to the villagers and outsiders to spread awareness of the ongoing oppressive practices against women and children. This is actually a kind of movement where all the rural women of Satyamangalam participate in with their heart. The idea is to use these videos for getting support from the district authorities and other related bodies in Tamil Nadu to empower the women in the village.
Women Farmers of Medak
Medak is a small district in the state of Telangana. The rural women of this district with the help of Deccan Development Society (DDS) village level women’s sanghams (voluntary farmer associations) learnt the techniques of sustainable rain-fed farming, which they applied in their own district initially. Later, they started providing trainings on the same to peasants in their neighbouring village Vidarbha region of Maharashtra. It is said that the rural women farmers of Medak district were once landless labourers but today they have solved their farming problems efficiently. And they have also developed innovative and eco-friendly ways to generating additional income for their family.
Who is a mompreneur? This is the trendy nomenclature given to a mom who starts her business and chase her dreams. Most educated modern women want to maintain a perfect balance in their lives in terms of their personal and profession lives. There is no denying the fact that the number of Indian women is rising in the professional world today and they are doing well in their lives. But, at the same time, there are many women who at some point in their lives have to sacrifice their career for family obligations. Thankfully, nowadays, the concept of working from home, part-time jobs, flexible job opportunities are coming up and many professional women are looking for best work-from-home jobs.
At the same time, there are many women, who have this inherent desire to do something on their own or start their own business, instead of a 9 to 5 job. We call them women entrepreneurs and if they are moms, they are “Mompreneurs”.
Is it easy to become a “Mompreneur”?
The answer is both “Yes” and “No” both. There are many reasons why you might want to start your own business. For example, you want to be financially independent, you want to be your own boss, your family may need an alternative income for a better living, you can’t work at regular job while raising your child, or you might be a single mom and must support your family. So whatever the reasons may be, if you have the passion in you and if you have necessary support, finances, infrastructure, resources, and skill available with you, then no one can stop you in chasing your dream of becoming an entrepreneur. On the other hand, if you do not have that passion in you, if you lack confidence, then no one can help you to be a mompreneur, even if you have everything with you. So, whether you want to be a mompreneur/entrepreneur or not depends entirely on you. Read on to know the tips on how to accumulate free start-up capital for your business
