Tell us about your business and how it all started:
Making Mumpreneurs is an online community which supports and empowers mums building businesses around family live. I was actually living in Abu Dhabi when I launched it and my aim was to reach mums across the globe right from the start.
What best describes your business/brand/service in a few sentences?
An online community for mums in business
Where are you based, what areas do you cover?
We moved to Bournemouth from London (via Abu Dhabi) almost 2 years ago now and we are absolutely loving the seaside life. I love the entrepreneurial vibe, I had no idea how many small business owners lived here! My husband has now quit the corporate world and has started his own businesses too, so we are very much working on our work / balance, making sure we have quality time with our kids. My husband started the Bournemouth Biz Beach Walk & Talk so he could meet more entrepreneurs. It’s a free meetup every fortnight where we meet at Urban Reef at 9.30am on a Friday and walk to Fisherman’s walk and back. We get a great mix of small business owners every time!
My business is worldwide – I have mums in the Middle East, America, Australia, Europe and a stronghold in the UK – that’s why I love having a digital business, there are no boundaries!
Any news/new products you would like to share?
The inner sanctum of Making Mumpreneurs is The Cocoon online members club – a safe place to learn, evolve & grow as an entrepreneur. I offer monthly masterclasses, expert advice, member calls and continual support through the private Facebook group. It can be incredibly lonely working on your own, but it doesn’t have to be. Being a member of The Cocoon keeps you motivated and helps you beat the isolation of solo working.
This April I will be holding the Mumpreneur Momentum Day at Urban Reef. This one-day event will be a mixture of inspiration and practical business training with 8 fantastic speakers. Laceys solicitors are sponsoring the event and helping to keep the price affordable for small businesses owners. If you book before the end of March it’s £49 including a delicious lunch and refreshments throughout the day. Find out more at www.makingmumpreneurs.com/momentum-event

What’s your fav thing to do (or place to go) in Bournemouth when you have spare time?
Urban Reef is my happy place. I love nothing more than taking my laptop down, having a walk in the sea air and then getting creative over a coffee 😊
