Many mums tell me that they feel constantly on the go and life seems to be passing them by in a whirl of washing, cleaning, work and school pick-ups! This constant cycle makes them feel resentful, frustrated and a victim of circumstances. At this stage, these mums feel so lost they don’t know how they can possibly re-build their confidence and regain their lost sparkle. I tell them one thing: be optimistic!

Self-belief and positive thinking are intrinsically linked with confidence, happiness and life fulfilment. With belief, we can set out to achieve anything! I say to these mums,

When you became a mum, did you ever realise you would worry so much about every aspect of your child’s life? Do you think it is possible that the worries you have about your child’s wellbeing stir up fears in other aspects of your life? Does it take you a long time to make a simple decision? Do you have to talk about every possible outcome before you allow yourself to make a choice?  If you have become more anxious since becoming a mum, perhaps it is time to open up about your worries and fears so you can overcome them once and for all.

Life is no fun when you find yourself...

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realise how close they were to success when they gave up.”

                                                        -Thomas A. Edison

When you became a mumpreneur, you made a decision to create a solid work/life balance. Your business operates around the needs of your family and you’re there when your children most need you. Yet you also want to be a success, to earn a good...

“What others think of me is none of my business.”
Wayne Dyer

If you find yourself worrying about what others think about what you say, how you tackle the housework, what you wear and how you raise your kids, it is little wonder you’re feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and frustrated with life! By choosing to live by other people’s views, values and opinions, you’re setting yourself up for a very dull, difficult and unhappy life. However, you can start living in accordance with your own ideals, aspirations and values simply by realising what is important to you!

Throughout my e-newsletter and blog articles, I have often emphasised the importance of creating and maintaining a comprehensive business plan. Of course executing the plan is essential to your ongoing business success! I’d like to share an effective framework, which will help you deliver your projects, products and services in the most time efficient and methodical way.

Businesses, sectors and people vary considerably, which means your project will be completely different to the next mumpreneur. However, there will be similar steps to each project that will ensure tasks are completed...

De-cluttering your home takes commitment and effort. Once you have managed to sort through the chaos and organised your possessions into their rightful places, how do you maintain a clutter-free environment long-term?

A Clean Sweep
Keep on top of your surroundings by clearing up as you go along. This might sound a simple tip but when you lead a busy lifestyle, it is easy to let things slip as you rush from one task to another. If you don’t have chance to clean as you go, try to clear up before you go to bed. Keep a basket in the lounge for scattered toys and fill up the dishwasher...

Managing a successful business from home requires discipline and self-motivation. The home is filled with distractions that eat up your time and reduce your productivity. How can you ensure you maximise your time when working before family life resumes?

Schedule Your Working Hours

Knowing when you are working is beneficial for you and your entire family. Set your working hours when your children are at school or in bed to ensure they cannot demand your attention. The benefit of working for yourself is that you do not have to commit to a traditional 9-5 but you must give yourself enough...

Working from home offers many benefits to successful mumpreneurs yet it is also a haven for distractions and temptations that ought to be avoided! Distractions can easily lower your productivity and cut your bottom line. With only you as the boss, it can be difficult to stay focused on the task in hand.

The Biscuit Bulge

Many mumpreneurs find they overindulge when working from home. It is all too easy to snack on biscuits and other unhealthy snacks. With the best intentions, you reach for the snack cupboard to save time rather than making a meal but this does nothing for your waistline!...

Clutter can leave you feeling overwhelmed and when you consider organising your space, you may not know how or where to start! The decision to continue living in such chaotic surroundings or to begin sorting out the various areas of your home is entirely your own. Yet de-cluttering can bring a tremendous sense of relief and achievement. Creating an organised home environment provides a place in which you can feel calm and content.

De-cluttering involves simplifying your surroundings; deciding what you want to keep and allocating an appropriate space for it. Although it might seem an...

2014 is well underway and I’m hoping you’re feeling empowered and in control of your life and its direction. However, if you have started the year feeling exhausted after a busy festive period and your resolutions have long been left by the wayside, it is well worth taking a moment to catch your breath and realign your thoughts. It is never too late to assess your life and identify the changes you need to make to become a strong, focused and successful woman!

Winter can be a difficult time of year for everybody but for mums the inconvenience of bad weather coupled with a lack of...
