You have an idea, you manage to create a website, a bespoke
e-mail address… and then?
“Well…people will surely flock to my website as my idea is so
Sorry to burst your bubble… they won’t…
I can say it because this is what is happening to me right now,
this is where I am in my journey of becoming a Mumpreneur.
If you are new to this word, Mumpreneur it’s a merge of the
word Mum and the word Entrepreneur.
Being a Mumpreneur is something I am extremely passionate
about. I feel that many women have great ideas of what they would like to do in
their lives, what they would like to achieve, but once they become mothers, all
those lovely ideas get put in the backburner as the family life starts taking
My mission is to show other mums that this does not have to
be the case! Just because it’s what everyone does (or at least, the majority of
people) it’s not set in stones and it does not have to be the norm for everyone.
I have been a mum for nearly 6 years now and when my first
son was born, I returned to work after my maternity leave. I hated being at
work and being away from my little one… but back then I thought that I had no
When my second son was born, I had a different prospective, I
decided I would have not gone back to work and that I would spend time with
Staying at home with my baby was obviously amazing, but I started
craving for more… I thought to myself… “what if I could be able to get the best
of both world? Staying at home with my baby AND earn an income by doing
something I really enjoy?
I started scouting the internet and I discovered the SFM
community. SFM (Six Figure Mentors) is an educational company that helps people
create an online business around their passions, no previous knowledge needed.
After following the modules, in a couple of weeks I had managed
to create my website and even a bespoke e-mail address… This is pretty remarkable
for me as I am someone that when got her first pc and printer (at the age of 12-13)
I had to ask my mum to stay with me whilst PRINTING because I was scared to
break the printer… I know… So, getting all set up on my own (following the procedures
by video) was quite an achievement…
That brings me to today… I have my website, my social media
accounts and I am trying to spread my message… You’ll probably think it’s
counterproductive to me to tell you about my struggles, but as I said before,
my mission is to help mums! And if anyone decides to embark in this
lifechanging adventure, they’ll know that I have also been there, and I know how
Starting a blog can be daunting because you expose yourself
to the world and fear judgement… We don’t want to be judged… or maybe just when
we are sure we are doing things 100% right 😉 But that’s the beauty of it… exposing
yourself means learning something new about yourself, learn how you react to
things, teaches you trust yourself and believe in yourself!
Since starting this journey, I can’t tell you how many times
I said to myself: “I can’t do this… this was a stupid idea…! What am I trying
to demonstrate here??? I’ll never have time to write another post or to do join
the next webinar… I have two children to look after…!!!” And then… after a bit
of reflection, a bit of meditation, a bit of checking in with myself, I always
find a way to do it… even if it’s 22.23 and I am still typing away the blog
post I was supposed to have finished by midday today… but… hey, did not manage
earlier because I had to take my son to school (the last time for a while now
probably… beginning of Coronavirus restriction here in the UK…), I had to
prepare lunch, I had to clear the kitchen… all things that you, mums, are probably very familiar with…
but now, it’s 22.25 the kids are in bed and I can do something for myself, something
I enjoy, something that makes me feel happy and that (hopefully) you will find
of value and will help at least 1 person! That’s my hope!
So… without further ado… I’ll conclude by saying that it
doesn’t matter if you are a mum, a grandma, an auntie, if you have children or
not, if your children are young or grown up… if you want to do something in your
life… YOU GO AHEAD AND DO IT!!!! It’s never too late and if you really want
something…you will find a way…!!!
