Do you dream about being self-employed and starting up your own business? Do you crave the flexibility of being your own boss? Do you have a fabulous idea for a potential business that you know would be a huge success but you’re unsure how to get started?

On returning to work, many mums find working for other people a very inflexible and challenging experience.
