How to take your career to the next level

When you want to be able to push your career to the next level, it’s always important for you to take control of this. Your career won’t always get to the heights that you want it to, without you really being in the driving seat. Success doesn’t happen overnight or by accident. Instead, you have to be in charge and really push to get to where you want to be. Maybe you have a career in fashion that you want to build on, or another related creative field? Well, if you want to be a creative director, a CEO, or even start your own company, then you need to start to take to make that happen. So if you’re ready to really amp things up with your career, here’s what you can do.

  1. Plan Your Progression

To get yourself started, you need to have some kind of idea of what you want, where you’re going, or how you’re going to climb the ladder. A lot of the time, if you’re trying to get ahead and you have absolutely no idea of where you’re going, you have an issue. So, you need to know a rough idea of what you want to do, and where you want to be. Stick that at the top of the plan, and then work backwards through the steps that you need to take or go through in order to get there – and how long this is going to take.

 

  1. Increase Your Level

Now, as you’re doing that, you may find that you need to be able to learn a little more. Maybe you want to teach design or writing? Then you may need to look at an online masters in education to be able to do that. Or maybe you want to be a fashion or creative company CEO? Then it could be that doing an MBA is going to give you the skills you need to get to a senior level in your field.

  1. Build A Side Business

Another great idea here, is to think about building a business for yourself. When you come up with a side business idea that can boost your career, it can often give you the skills and experiences you need to get to where you want to be. Or, if you want to have your own business, then starting it on the side is the best way to get it off the ground and start moving forward with that part of your career.

 

  1. Get Innovative

Now, whether you’re someone who’s self-employed and already running your own thing, or you’re climbing the career ladder and you want to keep doing that, innovation can help you. For someone that wants a promotion, to make a difference in their job, or to who wants to grow their business to new-level heights, thinking outside of the box when it comes to creativity and ideas matters. If you can come up with that killer campaign, new product idea, or a better way of operating, and it makes money, you’re going to reap the rewards. Whether this is financially n your own business, or in the form of recognition or a promotion in the company that you work for.

 

How are you planning to take your career to the next level?

Great Car Features to Ease Family Travel

I recently got myself a new car and we are seriously loving it. I enjoy driving the car. It moves very well and it looks really nice. We have gone on many road trips with the new car already. And we have many more road trips planned before the end of the year, which is exciting. Road trips are so much fun. It is great to explore the country and beyond. And see what the rest of the world has to offer. Going on a road trip as a family is fun as we get to create memories and go adventures. But the car we use always has to be in top shape before we can go on any trip. Going on a road trip with the kids can be stressful. But thanks to some great car features that help to ease family travel, we have managed to go on amazing trips.

Great Car Features to Ease Family Travel

Here are some of the great car features that have helped us go on many road trips as a family.

 

CD Player

We love music in our house. Music is like food to my soul and that is the same for my husband and the kiddies. So our Car CD player is forever playing when we are on our road trips. We have all sorts of CDs, and the kids have a few favourites they like playing over and over again. I can’t imagine going on a road trip without any music.

It would be so quiet and boring. And I am sure the kids would bug me a lot more. Apart from enjoying and singing aloud to good music, it also helps them drift off on long car journeys, which is so helpful.

 

A Good Size Boot

As a family of 4 with 2 toddlers, we never travel light. We pack all sorts and extras for unforeseen circumstances. So extra clothes, underwear, toiletries, shoes, toys, books, wipes, food, you name it, we most likely would pack it. Which is why a good size boot is a great car feature to have, especially when going on road trips with the family. There is no way I would dream of buying a car with a small boot. We won’t be able to go anywhere.

My next car would have a bigger size boot. The size of your car boot is so important once you have a growing family.

 

Car Insurance

Once you have a car, you need a car insurance. That is the law. In addition to the car insurance, having a breakdown cover is also very important when you plan on going on long car trips with the family. I remember when we went on a trip many years ago before the kids, and we had a. bad accident on the motorway. It was a terrible experience I would never forget. But I am thankful we had a good car insurance cover that included a breakdown service. We were quickly rescued and taken to our destination.

Having a good insurance cover for the car is very important. Aviva has comprehensive car insurance covers that would protect you and your vehicle. For example, if f you had an accident that wasn’t your fault with an uninsured drive  (terms and conditions apply). Aviva Car Insurance also covers loss or damage to your vehicle, vehicle recovery, driving other cars, legal costs,  and many more add-on features.

There is also the Aviva Drive App, which is super handy to have on the phone. The app monitors your driving skills and saves you money on your car insurance. It also comes with an integrated dash cam which is like an extra pair of eyes on the road. I think it is a great tool to have. You can never be too careful these days, so having a dash cam is a smart way to drive.

With the Aviva Drive App, if you are ever involved in an accident, the tracking information on the app can provide valuable evidence, which can help when there are different explanations to how the accident happened. I wish we had this dash cam when we had our accident. It would have made our lives a lot easier as the accident was not our fault. It is an app you should download for sure.

 

Car Storage

Good car storage is very important. It helps keep bits that are needed in the car. We usually have our tablets and books in the pouch. They come in handy when the kids need other types of entertainment. Definitely a great storage to have in the car.
