Every business in every industry has to be competitive. To ensure you can compete in sector, you must be able to identify what makes your organisation different: what is your unique selling point (USP)?

The lives of most modern mums tend to revolve around the needs of their children. Although being a mum is a highly rewarding role, it brings with it plenty of sleep deprivation, worry and stress. If you are leading a busy family life, your health and wellbeing will inevitably have an impact on what you are able to do for your children. If you are feeling overwhelmed, unappreciated and exhausted, making time for self-care can help to re-energise you and re-awaken your lust for life.

A brand isn’t a company name, logo or product. It is the representation of your entire business: what you offer, how you deliver it, what customers expect and you. Everything you and your business portrays is part of your brand and yours will only be successful if you truly believe in it.

If you don’t believe in your brand, why will anyone else? Unless you visibly and passionately believe in your brand – its customer promise, service, product and ethos – your business won’t stand a chance in the wider commercial community.

It may be that you are the heart and...

Don’t Mix Business With Pleasure

Create a home office away from the rest of your family’s living space. This will give you a physical divide that you can all respect. It also enables you to get on with your work without being distracted by household chores.

Invest In Technology

Don’t let slow internet connections and unreliable PCs slow you down! Invest in...

Life isn’t easy and when you’re busy juggling the responsibilities of motherhood with everything else you have to do, you can be left feeling unfulfilled and unappreciated. If you’re feeling low with little self-esteem, it is likely you also feel devalued by those around you, which has a significant impact on the way you feel about yourself.

Learning to love and accept yourself is the key to a happier and more fulfilling life. It enables you to value yourself and everything you do without having to rely on the recognition of other people. It gives you the motivation to go...

So many of my articles and discussions about working from home focus on ways to achieve work life balance, find more time and enjoy quality time as a family. However, just as important as these issues is ensuring you take care of your health and wellbeing, which can often get overlooked. Juggling family and work commitments can leave you dashing from one thing to the next. One of the negative side effects of running your own business whilst raising a family is committing time to taking care of you and your health.
