8 Hot Tips From Happy and Successful Mums In Business
When I first started the Mums With Hustle Podcast I had no idea what it would become. I had no listeners, no Instagram following and no business experience. It was purely about wanting to share my business journey in the hopes that it would help at least one person. It was also about uniting all of us in our shared experience of business and motherhood through tips and action-taking.
These episodes have come out weekly over the past four years and as I have evolved, the podcast has evolved too; however, it remains true to its initial purpose of education, inspiration and community!
The ripple effects that are being felt far across the world by women of all faiths, ethnicities, beliefs and lifestyles are honestly astounding and I want to take a moment to stop and celebrate our progression, our collective journey and our community!
And since we are massive supporters of female entrepreneurship and navigating the motherhood/entrepreneurship journey at the same time, I've asked several kick-ass women in business, some who will be familiar faces because they were guests before and some who are appearing on the podcast for the first time, to join me and share their best tips for early stage business owners who are just starting out.
