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

One of the greatest and most valuable benefit is having the opportunity to align your aspirations for both your business and personal life. Maximising your output and creating innovative efficiencies will ensure your business works for you and provides a tremendous amount of satisfaction and fulfilment.
Setting up a business that you can manage around your family’s needs is incredibly beneficial, which is why more and more...
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...
A highly effective way to live in accordance with your own aspirations – at work and personally – is to prioritise your needs and how you want to spend your time. When you decided to set up a business that would work around your family life, you did so to manage your own time effectively, contribute to the household income and be there when your family needs you. Sometimes balancing everything equally can be difficult, especially when one aspect of your life demands attention over another. How can you confidently and quickly make decisions that enable all aspects of your life to...
At the start of a New Year, it is customary to make resolutions for a better life. Of course such traditions often lead to unachievable goals being set that do not fit practically with busy lifestyles. Yet realistic resolutions made at the start of the year – the goals that you really want to achieve – are highly motivating and valuable. Setting realistic goals will help you achieve the life you really want and give you something on which you can focus and work towards over the coming months. The key to successful resolutions is actually straight forward:
