So here we are on day one of being an “entrepreneur mum” (or mumtrepreneur as I am reliably informed it is called – not sure if I like that?!). Strictly speaking that first sentence is a lie as this is actually day four but as it is the first day I have done much more than wander round the house missing my kids and putting on washing I think we will for arguments sake call it day one!
For those who don’t know me, I am Sarah, I have 2 gorgeous (most of the time) children (Lucas and Chloe) and I am currently on a leave of absence from one of the large management consultancies while I try and figure out how I manage working and two children. Following in the steps of many others I am planning on using this year to try and set up a family business that my husband and I can run alongside our day jobs. Simple hey?!
So for 2 days a week my husband is shelling out an exorbitant amount of money to have our two little ones in nursery so that I can create a business empire that will make us millionaires (or at least put a roof over our head). Obviously that money is being well spent as I sit here and write my first ever blog…….
As I was out jogging a minute a go (I know I know – yet further procrastination), it occurred to me this process might be a weeny bit less daunting if I were to have someone to talk to as I set off on this journey. My poor husband has been amazing and has promised to hold nightly coaching and moaning sessions with me but I have a feeling that the virtual world may be a little less frustrated with my daily rants so my blog has begun!
Not much more to say of day one, other than my achievements so far are to line up some A3 paper and a lot of nicely coloured pens, to create myself an online presence (you can find me on twitter at @mum_business) and to write a whole list of ideas of things I might like to do.
Now you have embarked on this trip with me I will keep you updated as hopefully this progresses to me becoming one of the countries top entrepreneurs (step one will be to learn to spell that word without spell check!). Thanks for listening and I will be back soon when I have something of value written on my paper!
