My Day

A Day in the Life of a Stay-at-Home Mom Who Became a Certified Public Accountant and Is Now in Charge of Accounting

  • 7:00 AM

  • I wake up and have breakfast with my son.

  • 10:00 AM

  • I check e-mails and Slack. After I confirm and organise what needs to be done during the day, I assign priorities to tasks and begin with those that need immediate action.

  • 10:00 AM

  • I participate in a meeting with the NewsPicks Advertising Sales Team, where we check the progress of sales and article production on a weekly basis. I like to work while also feeling the efforts of others, which along with the thoughts of each team member are reflected in sales achievements. Therefore, I actively participate in meetings, and strive to listen to what those working in sales day-to-day have to say.

  • 11:00 AM

  • I receive an enquiry from the Advertising Sales Team at NewsPicks. Since the contract details with each client differ, I respond to enquiries concerning these contracts, such as invoicing and payment timing.

  • 12:00 PM

  • I have lunch

  • 2:30 PM

  • I think about ways of sharing work with the Accounting Team members. We hold discussions and divide tasks to achieve more concentrated and efficient settlement processes.

  • 3:00 PM

  • I hold an Accounting Team meeting, where I receive feedback on the discussions related to accounting and finance that were held during the management meeting. I divide the main responsibilities for accounting depending on the specifics of the task, and include that in daily work.

  • 5:00 PM

  • I always try to leave office at this time because I want to have dinner with my family as much as possible. Remote work is also allowed in the company, so I finish any remaining tasks at home.

  • 7:00 PM

  • Today’s dinner is one of my son’s favourites, Kaphrao. It makes me happy that my son has reached an age where he will gladly eat Thai cuisine, saying that it is delicious and talking about random things.

  • 8:30 PM

  • I process documents and do approval work. I process application forms from clients that have started working with our company and approve reimbursement requests. I send a message on Slack to the person in charge as soon as I have any doubts. Remote work has become easier at each stage ever since Slack was introduced throughout the company.

  • 11:00 PM

  • I go to bed; I try to sleep eight hours a day, as not getting enough sleep can have an impact on my job.

Message from Yasuko Nemoto

It is perfectly normal for UZABASE members to prioritize their family and school events of their kids comparing to their works because we believe that how happily we can work is the most important thing. You can enjoy a great flexible working environment in UZABASE.
