It has been a challenging (and interesting) time for us all these last few months. To say it has been difficult for many is an understatement.
I feel so lucky that we have been able to stay safe at home and my husband has remained working and able to locate in the home office. And with all the chaos going on in the outside world, I decided to set up my business….yep, that’s right.
In September 2019, I had our second child and was balancing running the marketing for a leading children’s franchise business around the kids. It worked well around my situation.
For a long time I had been wanting to take the plunge and start sourcing more business with a ‘proper’ brand and website. As more news appeared around coronavirus it became clear that we were going to be stuck at home for some time.
Being at home has allowed me the time to focus on getting my business set up and online networking has been perfect to connect but also fit around the kids and my husbands work.
When I reflect what I have achieved in the last few months, its bonkers. Me and my husband have made a great team when it comes to juggling the children around work meetings and he has been a huge support with getting me kick started.
It has shown me that, now more than ever, small businesses need to filter what marketing will bring them the most value, and most of the time they just need to understand the basic (but essential) aspects to help grow their business and that’s where I can help.
