Ready to carve your own path?

A collection of insightful and inspiring interviews with 23 women who share their stories of building businesses around family life.

Millions of women around the world are choosing a different way of working. They are not opting to return to a full time career working 60 hours a week, but they are instead carving their own paths, building businesses which allow them to be a mother and a business owner side-by-side.

A business on their terms.

This book shares the stories of women overcoming self doubt, battling fear of failure and details how they have successfully designed a business that works for them around their children. 

You will learn what's worked - as well as what hasn't! - for these women as they have started and grown businesses alongside raising a family. They share how they have adapted to overcome challenges, dealt with mum guilt, imposter syndrome and gaps in their knowledge. And each woman shares how she manages that common challenge: the work/life juggle!

Want to learn how to survive and thrive as a mum in business? This book is for you.
