Are you a business mum? Sit down and have a break

When you’re running a small business and you do most of the work yourself, it can be hard to take a breather. Mainly because you fear that things will go wrong if you do. Same goes when you’re a mum. Most of my clients are mums in business (as am I) and we face the double challenge.

A Working Mum At The Park

As a working mum, it’s hard to take time out but I promised the Meatball I’d take him Pokemon hunting during the holidays. I came to a compromise and this became the office on Friday.

I’m Not Lucky

Last week I told an acquaintance that my family and I went to Hawaii for the Meatball’s 10th birthday. After the requisite squeal, I heard my most despised 3 words:   “YOU’RE SO LUCKY!”   Well, I didn’t win the lotto, I didn’t receive an inheritance from a long lost relative nor did I dig up a treasure chest full of gold in my backyard. So I don’t really see how luck came into play. I was able to have…
