Catherine's story

Catherine* is a friend from way back. She left full time work in 1998 to have the first of her two children, retrained as a chef with Prue Leith, then set up and ran her own high end catering business for a number of years.

Recently I asked my daughter Zoe what she wanted for Christmas. She screwed up her face like she always does when I ask her something she doesn't want to hear, and said "I don't know, Mum. If I want something I buy it myself."

I'm sure that is a familiar experience for you. Sure there are lots of things I could get her, but I want them to be useful or meaningful. We all have so much stuff in our homes (and lives)

What's next in your career?

In my last corporate job, I never had a minute to reflect on what I wanted next in my career. Except perhaps giving it cursory consideration just before the annual performance review discussion, when it was usually glossed over by my manager!
