Working well together

Today we were so busy at our new office that we hadn’t noticed how long we had been working. That is such a great sign that not only do I enjoy working at Mummy’s Wish but that Bernadette and I work very well together. We try to not work on the same things but have different areas of the business that we focus on. Bernadette being a CPA has taken on finance while I have taken on volunteers and HR (even though I really only have recruitment experience).

It has been such a huge learning curve, especially finding out all things you are supposed to know. We have great support from Volunteering QLD in giving us information and providing us with opportunities to meet with potential corporate volunteers. There are so many businesses and companies allowing their staff to donate time during office hours. I still need to find someone able to draft our office procedures as my head seems to be swimming at the moment. We are hoping that the Golden Guru program through volunteering QLD can help there. What an amazing idea the Golden Gurus is. People who have retired or who have lots of time on their hands, volunteer to help charities and non profits get on track, with whatever area they need. I highly recommend this to any organisation needing a bit of an extra hand.

I think I neglected to list all the areas that we still need help with, but I suppose that’s not why I am writing a blog (that’s for you to check out on our facebook page!).
