Overcoming Problems

Overcoming Problems, or Expanding?

Owning a business is never easy.  Some times are harder than others and we all hit a wall from time to time.  The most common issue is that the business has grown and has become overwhelming - if that's you, you're certainly not the only one!

We can talk through the problems you’re facing and I’ll give you honest (sometimes brutal) advice on where you can go from here.

Business Mums

I've been self employed for 15 years, I've also been a Mum for 15 years.  I started my first business when my eldest child was born and I've never looked back. 

Juggling my businesses and my kids is not always easy but I've never missed a single school play and I get to spend every school holiday with my children.

If you're a self employed Mum - or you're a Mum who wants to start your own business, please get in touch - I'll help you in any way that I can.
