Here are some answers:

In the tutorials, you will get information to a lot of services and support that you might not even know to look for. 

You can definitely find the information for free, but it will be time consuming and you might miss some important things. 

The tutorials have been prepared after a lot of research and when you get the tutorials, you have the information in one place and can keep going back to it.

Both tutorials are definitely beneficial for you if you’re pregnant or have already had your baby. 

They have tips and information on all the services available to you as new parents. 

And you will learn how to fill out all the paperwork correctly and submit all the relevant documents.

Once you buy the tutorials, you have access to all the videos and the PDF documents.

You can watch them in your own time, go back and rewatch whatever you need. 

The first tutorial covers the application for Kindergeld and how to fill out the application correctly. The second tutorial covers the application for Elterngeld and Mutterschaftsgeld, how to fill out the forms correctly and the papers you need to submit.

In tutorial 1 you will get information on all your pregnancy, birth plan and postpartum services that are covered by your health insurance. 

You will also learn how to apply for baby’s birth certificate, how to fill out the application for Kindergeld and the documents needed. 

In the second tutorial, you will get information on Elterngeld, Elternzeit and some tips on dividing these between both parents to optimise money and time.

While the application forms I have used are specific to Berlin, most of the information is relevant for all of Germany. 

If you live in another part of Germany, please book a consultation call and I will personally answer your questions. 

If your child is below 14 months of age, you can get Elterngeld.

And you are eligible for Kindergeld if you meet certain criteria.

You can definitely benefit from the tutorials. 

Please book a consultation to discuss your specific situation.

Any Questions?

Here are some answers:

You would seek me out as your job coach, 

  1. When you are at a crossroads in your career and cannot figure out the next step
  2. When you want to change your line of work and are unsure about how to position yourself
  3. When you are on maternity leave and need help to go back to your old job or change jobs

In the 30 minute free consultation (if you decide to book it) or at the beginning of our sessions, we would define the goal of your session and a plan to achieve that goal. We will plan our sessions and then step by step, we will solve the problems and find clarity.

The workshops and one on one sessions are designed especially for you: a confused mother who has little time for “extra work”. In brief sessions, you will get tools to manage your life efficiently and get back to work. In this session, you will gain clarity and practical tips for your job applications or managing work life balance. It is all about your particular situation, no distractions and no other intervention, 100% your time. You are paying for my experience and expertise, not just my time..

For one on one sessions we can discuss:

  1. Planning the next steps in your career
  2. How to cope with going back to work after a long break 
  3. Applying for your dream job 
  4. Communicating with courage: how to have difficult conversations at home and at work

That depends on your needs. In a workshop, you have the opportunity to share stories and experiences with other mothers as well as get ideas from them. It is a more interactive setting and you will learn with fun exercises and group work. On the other hand, a one on one session is dedicated only to you and your situation. We will discuss only your questions, job application or career plans.

This is called the Activation and Placement Voucher in English or Aktivierungs- und Vermittlungsgutschein in German. If you are unemployed, you can get this voucher from the Agentur für Arbeit or Jobcenter to get job coaching. This coaching is funded and helps you find gainful employment based on your qualification. Book a free call with me to know how to use your voucher with me as your coach.

The short answer is, yes! I can offer you career coaching in German. For now, the workshops are offered in English, but I plan to start them in German soon too. Sign up for my newsletter to stay up to date on announcements.
I also speak Hindi and Marathi, in case you are more comfortable in either of these languages for the coaching.
