Building an extraordinary life.

We believe a genuinely holistic approach that puts wellness at the heart of everyday life is vitally important. Because though you may find working as a lawyer mentally stimulating and rewarding, a legal career is notorious for being a hotbed for stress, burnout and poor mental health.

CheekyLittleCareers wants to put the spotlight firmly on well-being so that all our users can flourish at work and find career fulfilment without compromising mental and physical well-being.

We’re therefore fully committed to posting regular content that will offer our users inspiration and honest advice on how to practice self-care, including mindfulness, eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, journaling and pursuing fun and exciting new hobbies.

Wellbeing

Our community guidelines

We want all of our community to enjoy using our website so please follow our 5 B’s:

Be nice

Don’t be mean, rude or insulting when leaving messages or comments. You wouldn’t like it if someone was nasty to you.

Be professional

Your conduct is a reflection of you. Who knows, your future boss may be reading your comments…think about that.

Be respectful

Don’t be a buffoon, always be respectful. Not everyone shares your sense of humour. High five!

Be real

Making up false claims or lying just isn’t cool so don’t do it. Just be yourself at all times. You’re super cool.

Be helpful

Share your knowledge and experiences with others, who knows one day the shoe may well be on the other foot.
