This week’s mumpreneur profile is a complaining cow who found her niche and turned her blog into a buisiness. I just love the name of this blog! So this week I give you Helen Dewdney, the Complaining Cow.
This post is about the day when I received the notification from Google that every blogger dreads, and what I found when I completed a total blog audit of Mum’s the Boss.
A couple of months ago I made the big decision to merge my two websites, Motivating Mum UK and Mum’s the Boss. The merger took place on 21st September 2016, and all links from Motivating Mum UK are now pointing to Mum’s the Boss.
I explained in yesterday’s blog that I decided to take the whole of August off in order to have a proper summer. So on 1st September I dragged myself reluctantly back to work….
Procrastination is the thief of time – so they say
We’ve all had one of those days. You’re sitting on your own in your office and you know that there is something you absolutely need to do, but for some reason you just can’t bring yourself to get going at it.
So you’ve taken to motherhood and decided that it just won’t fit in with the job you did before maternity leave. Or you’ve just received your redundancy cheque and decided to go it alone. But what home business should you choose?
by Rebecca Jones: Watch any business programme on the TV read a business book or spend time with other business owners and you will hear time and time again how “cash is king” and “turnover is vanity and profit is sanity”. But have you ever heard the phrase “I’m just too busy to make sales calls”? I have, and I hear it all the time.
Accounting and Bookkeeping tasks are all too easy to push to the back burner, but that only creates a bigger mountain to climb in the future. Staying on top of basic bookkeeping needn’t be a huge chore with these timesaving ideas.
Let’s face it, we ALL have a bad day from time to time. Sometimes it’s a Bad Parenting Day, when your children are testing you to the limits or you know you handled a situation badly. Or it might be as simple as a Bad Image Day, when you hate the way you look, none of your clothes fit and you can’t do a thing with your hair! Added to this, if you run your own business, then you are bound to have days when it all gets on top of you – maybe you lose a pitch, your supplier lets you down, your internet connection is flaky, your cashflow is dire, or you simply don’t have the energy or the enthusiam to carry on.
