𝗔𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮 𝗠𝘂𝗺? Secretly I can not wait to be a mum (well let’s be honest it’s not that big of a secret - I tell anyone who leaves me with their bubba ). But when I was working full time I struggled to look after just me between a 50 hour week, 10 hours commuting, trying to be a good friend, daughter, sister, partner, keep the house clean, do the groceries, cook and somewhere in there work out. I was like f@&k how do mums in the 21st century do it all?
I felt like I was constantly chasing my tail, never getting ahead and deflated as I knew trying to fit kids into that mix would be stressful as hell, not to mention only having 9 months maternity leave then having to either live on one income or place my bubba in before and after school care just to spend 2 days a week with them and miss all their milestones... that is not what I wanted my motherhood to be like. I don’t want to bring beautiful babies into this world just for someone else to look after them.
That was my biggest motivator to start looking into other ways of working. Ways I could still make a difference, have an identity outside of motherhood, have an awesome income, do something I am passionate about and enjoy, educate and help people with their holistic health and happiness AND not have to sacrifice my career or magical moments with my future family
Voila .... that’s how Babes in Business was born! People think you have to be a “babe” to do business with us. You don’t. That’s just where we were in our life when we started wanting to set ourselves up so when we are mums we don’t have to make the same sacrifices most women have to in the 21st century. We work with a lot of mums in Bizz too - check out our video to get a bit of a vibe for our tribe and message me if you would love to hear more stories from other mums in our team and see the impact we are making collectively around the world, it’s pretty special. I won’t lie, I’m pretty proud of us.
