If you need to know about being a mumpreneur, check out last week's Start Up Donut blog. And I'm not just saying that because I was one of the contributors! (My post is 'What's my greatest challenge as an aspiring mumpreneur?')
All last week, Start Up Donut had a mumpreneur theme, with blog posts ranging from tax tips by Business Plus Baby guest blogger Amy Taylor (Amy is rapidly becoming the business mums' accountant) to Zoe Brown explaining how having four children focused her mind on business (yes, really!). My personal favourite was Rachael Dunseath's 'Not for the houseproud'. Like Rachael I'm starting a business with two pre-schoolers at home – something has got to give and guess what, it's the housework!
Start Up Donut is a seriously useful website for anyone starting up a business. I especially liked 'how I started up on a shoestring' as I think most of us start-up mumpreneurs can relate to that. Plus it has some creative ideas for getting what you need to get your business of the ground if you have very little capital. And as the article says, the less you spend, the less you have to lose.
