004: Aleksandra King – Protecting a work-life balance and making decisions consistent with her values

"Its OK to have bad days. Look at what they're telling you and use them to gear your life in a better way for you" - Aleksandra King

In this episode of the Parentpreneur Accelerator Podcast, I talk to Aleksandra King, a fellow Parentpreneur with a business specialising in a communication – helping her clients to communicate their message to their target audience.

Aleksandra has a wealth of experience in this field, having worked on high profile projects with companies such as Hugo Oliver.

She was recently a contestant on the 12th series of the ‘The Apprentice’, in which she surprised contestants and viewers in the 4th episode by leaving the process before the task had started.

In subsequent interviews Aleksandra has explained that she left because the process did not provide a good enough work-life balance, or enough access to communicate with her children. Something I definitely applaud!

In this interview we go deep into the concept of work-life balance, the importance of “Designing your Life” and why this must be done at the very start of building a business, before anything else.
