What does it mean to be a positive role model in 2018?

Today, 19th November 2018 marks International Men’s Day, and the theme this year is around ‘Positive Role Models’. We wrote a blog post last week that you can find here about why we decided to team up with Clo PR and chat to some pretty incredible men about this topic.

Oh Hi Boys

As many of you will know by now, we’re kind of keen about women. Talking about them, celebrating, chatting with them, swooning over their brilliance. Following on from International Women’s Day earlier this year, we teamed up with CLO PR (or Mac&Moore) to create an action plan on how we’d #PressForProgress and make our contribution towards ending gender inequality.

Thinking is good. Talking is great. Doing is best.

A Manifesto powered by Mac&Moore and Clo PR

Mac&Moore and Clo PR have teamed up to turn words into actions and to alter the landscape for the next generation of women in work. We have created a manifesto and an action plan based on three pillars of doing things properly, doing things differently and creating a platform for people on their way up.

If every journey begins with a single step, this manifesto is ours. We’ve thought about the route, planned the journey, talked about how we’ll get there, so there’s nothing left for us to do except for getting started. We want to create long-lasting, impactful and infrastructural change across both traditional workplace structures and the new but rapidly developing freelance economy.

“I have come to believe that caring for myself is not indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival” Andre Lorde

It’s Mental Health Awareness week and it’s already been so amazing to read so many brave stories from members of our network about overcoming mental health battles on a daily basis. As part of our contribution, and to help create awareness for this important subject, we have decided to share our journey with self-care, and talk to you about our strategies when navigating difficult aspects of running your own business or being freelance.

Amsterdam: The Shortlist

Our favourite places from six months in this pretty little city

 We can hardly believe it but our half a year in the Dutch capital is at an end, and neither of us have been hit by a bike OR fallen into a canal (although we don’t want to speak too soon, there are still a few days left!). We’ve well and truly made the most of our time here, having all sorts of adventures and getting stuck into the Amsterdam way of life, so we thought there would be no better way to say goodbye than writing a rundown of our favourite places to eat, drink and be merry for you to enjoy.

F**k the Thigh Gap

One of the most amazing and liberating parts of running Mac&Moore is the fact that we can dictate when, how and who we work with. This seemingly small thing that I used to take for granted has been absolutely incredible in allowing both Jess and I to pursue our other passions in life (aside from winding each other up).

Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change

"Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change." Jim Rohn

Well we made it – here we are 2017! And what a year 2016 was for us all – full of personal, cultural, professional and political heartbreak. The world seemed to change last year and the overarching theme was that of one of loss. Losing our sense of what we should value, who we are as individuals and what we are striving for and a loss in sense of direction.

When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die

OK, I just want to begin this post saying I don’t ride a dragon, expose myself to a crowd of individuals or “know nothing” (debatable) but just hold fire I’ve got an idea here…

I, like many other individuals, am obsessed with the phenomenon that is Game of Thrones and since we started this whirlwind of setting up our own business 8 weeks ago I’ve come to think there are a heck of a lot of similarities between my life and the world’s favourite TV show.

So ladies and gentlemen here are 5 reasons why my life is like Games of Thrones…. READY? You should be…
