With the festive period only a matter of weeks away, it may already seem like your to do list is bigger than old Saint Nicks himself! Unlike Santa, you may not have an army of elves to help with your workload, but you do have organisation and planning tools to help you get through this busy time.

Any mum who works will tell you how hard it can be to manage time and to-do tasks in the build up to Christmas. As a mumpreneur it can be even harder, as you are juggling the stress of running your own business, finding quality family time and preparing for Christmas.

Plan, Plan, Plan There is a...

Christmas can be a stressful time, from the build-up and preparations to overstretched financial commitments and family fall outs, but don’t let the pressure of the festive period get to you. Remember to keep calm, it’s only Christmas!

Christmas is a time for merry making and family get-togethers, but it can have its pressures too. The family is stuck in the house, the kids are overexcited, there’s the tree to decorate, presents to buy and wrap, and food to cook. Guess who is doing most of the work? That’s right – mum! Make sure this Christmas doesn’t...

Christmas on its own can be stressful enough, throw running your own business into the mix and you could potentially have the recipe for a stress overload! Take action now so you don’t reach the point of no return by setting up strategies well in advance of the festive season that will enable you to cope.

As the majority of women bear the brunt of Christmas preparation, it is understandable that this time of year fills a lot of mumpreneurs with dread rather than festive cheer. Here are a few ideas on how to effectively manage stress levels.

Setting predefined goals that focus on what...

The preparations for Christmas coupled with additional social events and late nights can leave mums feeling worn out. Early planning can help reduce the stress levels during the festive period, but mums also need to be sure they make time for themselves and their wellbeing to avoid feeling run down over Christmas.

Remembering to take care of yourself in the colder months – and especially through the festive period when Christmas preparations and socialising take priority – is of vital importance. Failing to take good care of yourself could result in feeling exhausted, run down...

The ‘perfect’ life is something to which many women aspire. The media and television have a lot to answer for; often extolling the virtues of the house with the white picket fence, 2.4 children and a pet Labrador.  But this ‘ideal’ doesn’t suit everybody.  We all have different aspirations, values and lifestyle choices.  It is important to remember that one person’s sunny day is another person’s opportunity to get burnt.  Put simply, we don’t all like the same things.

Aspire For Better

Is fear holding you back from starting your business and making it a great success? When you start out on your journey of running your own business, the first step is always the hardest. Your fear of the unknown, of taking a chance, is daunting but when you’re successful, it will all be worth it!

Fear Of The Unknown Conquering your fear is half the battle – or sometimes the entire battle – and you might see it as an imaginary barrier to success.  If fear is preventing you from pursuing your dream of running your own business, you can overcome your anxiety. Once...

Time is of the essence. As busy mums, we never seem to have enough of it and when we get some to ourselves, we need to make the most of it. Can you remember that last time you did a pastime you really enjoyed, such as reading a book, going for a walk, or perhaps having an uninterrupted bath? If you can’t remember, then it’s likely that you’re not getting enough time to yourself.

A Little Structure
Identifying your ideals can help bring structure to your schedule and reinforce your life balance. As a mum it’s worth considering your goals for your family and yourself,...

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to run and grow your own business? If this question pops into your head on a regular basis, or if you see others around you taking the plunge, then perhaps it’s time for you to turn your dreams into reality and set up your own business.

Achieve The Ultimate Balance Think how nice it would be if you were your own boss. The decisions would be yours. The rewards would be yours. Running your own business often offers the flexibility to work when you are able, not when you have to. To achieve a better work-life balance, you can plan and fit your...

Regardless of the size of your business or the length of time you’ve been trading, there are always new marketing tools available that can make your life easier and your business more successful. Many of these tools come with bold promises and it isn’t always easy to know which are best for your business. However, most offer a trial period during which you can test out the features to see whether they work for you and will provide a good return on investment.

How often have you bemoaned the fact that you only have one pair of hands and there aren’t enough hours in the day?...
