I see the debate happen all the time:
Lean In, Lean Out. You can have it all, You can't have it all. If you are working, you are neglecting your kids. If you are a mom, you are not "working". We need more women in leadership - Yes we do.
And then that image of success - perfect hair, perfect instagram tidy house. Makes you feel like its so out of reach, right?
Like you have to choose between the 9 - 5 (or more like 8 - 8) career, the family, or the hybrid "part time" worker, where lets face it - making it to social work functions just doesn't happen.
You get disillusioned, and disconnected from those dreams of doing something for you. (and making the school run).
So much for your goals.
That's where this course comes in.
Guess what - becoming an entrepreneur is hard work. But that's okay - you are a mom. You know what hard work is all about.
Becoming an entrepreneur means adapting to change. And that's okay - you are a mom. You know what adapting means.
Becoming an entrepreneur means learning as you go. Well, you've got that in the bag. If you are like me, there certainly isn't a perfect playbook to parenting your kids. Just check out my blog where I own up on my cake disasters.
Becoming an entrepreneur means learning how to say no to things, and staying true to your vision and values. Just like helping your kids make good choices - once again - a skill you have that will help you to no end in business.
Becoming an entrepreneur means negotiating, managing finances, and knowing how to get the right message to the right customer (ok we've all had to sell broccoli to a toddler, right?)
Becoming an entrepreneur means doing what you love, having fun and defining success on your terms. Flexibility. Family. Financial Independence. Outsourcing the gardening (just sayin')
And just like the saying "it takes a village to raise a child", well, it takes support to create success.
That's how Mumpreneur-101 came about.
My original business started as workingmumcoach.com, and evolved to become rise365 - helping people change it up to live and be authentic every day of the year, instead of feeling like you are constricted to either the corporate grey pant suit, or the school run sweat pants (possibly with some kid food or worse on you).
This program is now in its 3rd year, originally designed by yours truly for the City of Mandurah as a pilot - the face to face programs sell out every time they run. Designed to help connect like minded women, see businesses start, change and grow, demand has led it to be put online.
It builds confidence, inspires action, and moves your idea toward growth.
With practical tools and a supportive environment, we help take away the overwhelm that comes with stepping in to your ideas.
With a mix of video and downloadable worksheets, and aiming to keep lessons in small manageable time chunks of 15 minutes or less (give or take some thinking time if you are prone to a bit of deep thinking), all you really need to do is look at what time to trade (and we do that in week two).
Don't worry - I've done the study/work/start a biz/be mum deal, so yes, its achievable. And I get the juggle.
We can all achieve great things if we allow ourselves to.
With access to the mumpreneur alumni closed group, marketing tools, budgeting tools (for both personal and business budgets), time management tools. You will have tools coming out the wazoo, but you will know exactly what to do each week and uncover resources that you would have spent hours each week researching to find.
And because it's winter in my neck of the woods, I love doing nice things to make the world a little sunnier, so I'm launching:

So guess what mumma - you ARE a woman in leadership.
Are you ready to put on your big girl pants and own your dreams on your terms?
I'm the founder of rise365, and creator of a few game changer programs including:
- business power up (for those who have been in biz for a few years, plus a few other cool programs)
As a single mom/mum (I can never choose the spelling - wanting to be respectful of each other), I not only run my own business, I also have designed my time to make the school run, and done well enough to own my own home (well there is a bit of a mortgage). People can do amazing things if they allow themselves.
I get the importance of support structures, and that life is not always smooth sailing, but mindset, wellbeing and running a business go hand in hand (in hand).
When it comes to business, critical things to understand are your goals, how you use your time, and what success looks like for you.
My passion is to help remove barriers for people to create sustainable change and achieve success on their terms.
