A large proportion of you lovely retreaters have visited us during mat leave. Some of you are excited about going back to work, others less so. Whether you're planning on going back to your office job, negotiating a flexible option, or jacking it all in for a new direction, it can be nerve-wracking considering the next stage. The Step Up Club has shared with us a little bit of insight into the whole 'working it' question.
