My journey as a working mum to mumpreneur can be a great inspiration to other women out there. I had three young sons while working part-time for some clients at home. Started on the kitchen table then eventually turned the garage to my working area. This business was able to expand to five locations in Australia with 25 staff. Plus, I received a lot of awards.
In all of this, I had the determination to do well in the work that I did. I learned how to plan things out in order to reach my goals. Consistency and discipline was part of the game plan. I learned how to ask for help from my support network. I am known as the Queen of Lists, I am organised as possible. During this time, I learned to quit perfectionism. I knew I could get along well even if things weren’t perfect. Even though I started my work at home, I knew how to separate the home from the office. I had work time and home time. Education is also key. I finished my accounting studies during this time as well. As I continue to thirst for knowledge, I also share what I have with others through my books and ebooks.
