Helen005v4Nice to meet you, I’m Helen Lindop!

Here’s a little about me…

I didn’t want to put my baby into full-time childcare when my maternity leave ended in January 2009. I knew starting a business from home could be a solution but I couldn’t find the information I needed. So I started writing about the information I could find on Business Plus Baby in the hope it would help other mums like me.

That lead on to me writing a book, Start a Family Friendly Business: 129 Brilliant Business Ideas for Mums (with co-author Antonia Chitty) and a series of e-books and courses.

Here at Business Plus Baby you’ll find…

  • Lots of info on online business including internet marketing and starting an online store without spending a fortune.
  • A focus on building a solid, long-term financial future for you and your family, rather than making a few pounds to top up your family income (there’s nothing wrong with this of course, but there are already a lot of websites that cover making a few extra quid).
  • An interest in personal finance – having a business is only one piece of the puzzle if you’re aiming to build a solid financial future for you and your family.
  • Inspiration from other parents who are out there running their own businesses right now.
  • Other tips, tricks and products for staying fit, well and happy as a working parent of young children.

And if you’re a parent with a business and a young family (or just hoping to be!) I can send you…

  • My e-book: Running a Business Around a Family: 9 Steps to Success (4000 words, 23 pages)
  • Updates from Business Plus Baby, including upcoming online courses
  • Free stuff and discounts (including some that I don’t put up on the Business Plus Baby blog)
  • Good stuff I get to hear about from other home/mum business experts
