Did you know that 79% of millenials see mentoring as a crucial to their career success (Huffpost). Given the impact of Covid19, we are heading into a global recession, with an estimated 1 in 10 people losing their jobs or being asked to reskill. This is one reason why the LMF mentoring scheme was launched and is carrying on to our second programme.

This article will cover our current process, key learnings, how to get involved as a mentor or mentee, future progression of the scheme and data based benefits to our pledged partners.

PARLONS ROUTINE

Si vos rituels quotidiens amélioraient votre santé mentale ainsi que votre sommeil, que feriez- vous? Les rituels quotidiens, comme le maquillage ou le café matinal, apportent du réconfort. Ils agissent comme des guardes-fous qui nous donnent courage pour affronter les difficultés du quotidien un plus légerès.

Pour redoubler de courage en ce début d’année qui s’annonce une fois un peu compliquée, nous avons consulté les membres de LMF à la recherche d’astuces et d’outils pratiques.

ROUTINE

Did you know that creating daily routines can positively impact
your mental health as well as your sleep?

Rituals ground you by creating predictability and comfort. They are a reassuring signpost which creates a state of ‘flow’, so your mind can adjust to whatever the day throws at you.

As we are starting yet another odd year, we have spoken to some of our like-minded female friends and collated their favourite tips to help you ‘channel your inner light’.

What is your daily routine?

Money Matters [@LMFnetwork]

According to the Money Charity, 12.8 million households have no, or less than £1,500, in savings.

How can so many of us have no savings? Is it because of the lack of information available, the information overload or that fact that these basic skills are never taught in school but expected to be common knowledge when paying taxes? With so many of us suffering and unsure about money, we knew this was something we had to learn, teach and share! We launched the Money Matters series fundamentally to support you in your conversations with and about Money.

What is money matters?

Money Matters is an essential 8-week course designed to guide you to a stress-free and prosperous financial life. The…

41% of Brits don’t have enough savings to live for a month without income and ⅓ have less than £600 in savings, according to Finder!

The pandemic has come and stayed in 2020, reminding us that if the unpredictable happens, will we be financially ready to cover our backs? This year has shed light on how important it is to have savings, consider financial security and start that emergency fund!

One reason for this could be because of the little financial education delivered in schools or another is the overload of information on the internet, which becomes hard to digest…


Starting a side hustle can be very scary.

I started my side hustle after graduating from university this year. The graduate job market is difficult to enter when you lack experience and it’s required, so the side hustle was a way to establish my skills whilst generating some basic income. Turns out, I am not alone — according to the SME news, over ’16 million Brits use a side hustle, just as a way to cover basic living costs’ (SME news).

The worry was not starting the side hustle but more how I should manage my time — running a…


We are launching our Social Mobility Pillar in January 2021. Why?

Well, while some progress has been made with levelling the playing field to reduce barriers for those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, there’s more that can be done — we aim to make a positive contribution in this space.

Current State

Research finds that people from more affluent backgrounds take a disproportionate number of desirable jobs and that employers have the tendency to disproportionately employ graduates who went to private schools and elite universities (Elitist Britain, 2019)

Using data from the ONS, the State of the Nation (2019) found that…


Do you want the philosophical or practical answer?

Simply put, we exist because we didn’t belong. We exist to create spaces where you can show up as your full self and belong. We exist to enable, educate and empower you with life skills for future success. We exist because you asked us to.
