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...

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.

As busy mums, we tend to spend all our time fulfilling the needs of our children and our partner. Suddenly...

So many mumpreneurs ask me how they can improve their productivity when working from home. Creating an ultra-organised working environment is always my answer and here are some great tips to help you get started.

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...

“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are."

Marilyn Monroe

The expectations of others, whether they belong to family, friends, colleagues or general society, have a major influence on the way you think, behave and live your life. Yet until you realise the key to true life happiness is to stop trying to live the life others want and expect you to live, you will continue to allow unfounded opinions, outdated ideals and negative judgements knock your confidence and self-esteem.

Throughout life you have worked towards achieving the expectations others have had of you....

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. Here are some great tips to ensure your health, weight and wellbeing do not...

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...

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...
