With a continued rise in childcare costs and increased pressure on the family unit, an ever growing number of mums are ditching the stresses of a 9-5 job and starting their own business.
I am one of these mums. I love the flexibility of being there for the kids, as well as having more independence.
However, running a business also comes with its own unique challenges including loneliness and isolation.
Thanks to networking opportunities like Motivating Mum, mumpreneurs are given the opportunity to regularly meet with like-minded people to share their business ideas and meet new people rather than sticking it out in isolation.
I am lucky enough to have been part of the Doncaster Business Mum's Club for the past six months. The group meets once a month for two hours at a local hotel. Kids are also welcome.
I have met some very talented mums in business and have been amazed at the number of doors that have been opened for me and my business as a result of this group.
