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. We feel guilt when we’re working because we’re not there for our kids, and when we’re with our kids we feel guilty because…

Would you turn your hobby into a business?

One hobby of mine is making jewellery. To create something beautiful out of random materials makes me so happy. Nothing brings me so much joy than seeing friends and family appreciate gifts I made for them myself. I made a necklace and bracelet set for a friend’s daughter 3 years ago and I’m told it’s one of her favourite pieces of jewellery and is stored in the “special” jewellery box. Another is sewing and quite often I make clothes for myself.…

Wow – 3 months of not writing. As can occasionally happen, life gets in the way of blogging. Now that I’m back to not having a life my routine, I can get back to writing.

When it rains, it pours

We all have days where nothing seems to go right. Today was one of those for me. After working until 1am this morning, I had overslept and was running late in dropping my son off to my dad’s place and made him miss his doctors appointment. It also started to rain once I got my 4 year old (who has no grasp of what it means to hurry up) in the car and left the house (I was dressed for sunny weather in a dress and Havaianas). On the train on my way to work, I had a brief reprieve and was able to read a book. I thought that was the end of it, but lo and behold, I had gotten off the train and was walking down the stairs when I realised I had left my umbrella in the train just as the doors were closing and the train was pulling out of the platform. Oh, and its also THAT time of the month. Normally it wouldn’t be so bad, but considering that my husband and I have been trying for Bub #2 for close to 6 months, I was definitely not a happy little Vegemite.
