Did you start a business with a baby (or a toddler)?

Would you like to appear on Business Plus Baby? Could  sharing your story help an aspiring  mumpreneur start her business? Or maybe telling your story could you inspire a mum who is already running her business? If so, I’d love to hear from you.

If you like the sound of this (and you’d like a link to your website) this is what I’d like to know:

  • Tell us a little about your business
  • What was your job before starting your business?
  • How did you go from your old career to your new business? Did you hand in your notice when your maternity leave ended? Or work part time after having your baby, then leave your job later on?
  • What were your reasons for starting a business? Wanting to spend more time with your child(ren)? The cost of childcare? To be able to work flexibly?
  • Did you use any childcare? If yes, how much? If no, how did you find the time to do any work? How did you manage your time? Did you work mainly in the evenings and nap times?
  • How did you get your business idea?
  • What were your challenges and how did you overcome them?
  • What training, information or advice did you need to get started? Did you get this, if so where from?
  • If you could give one  piece of advice to a mum of a baby or toddler starting a business, what would it be?

Drop me a message using my contact page. Looking forward to hearing from you!
