Clarissa Rayward, otherwise known as the Happy Family Lawyer, joins us on today’s show. Clarissa fits all the ‘categories’ of people we love to chat to - she is a parent, an employer through her business Brisbane Family Law Centre and a thought leader ‘expert’ in all things happiness.
Clarissa very kindly joined us on what was supposed to be her maternity leave, having welcomed baby Daisy into the world just 7 weeks ago, for what she describes as a very candid conversation about what maternity leave really looks like when you have your own business – warts and all.
We talk about:
- The pressures women put on each other when we each decide when to return to work, especially around how we choose to manage our family responsibilities.
- The need to find out what makes you happy by finding your purpose and creating space in your life to spend time on it.
- How to harmonise the competing aspects of our lives and Clarissa’s views on whether happiness requires effort.
- How Clarissa encourages happiness amongst her employees and how she makes flexible working a success in her business via her leadership style and other means.
