The JULY Business Mum’s Blog Carnival is here!!
July 20, 2010 § 3 Comments
I am pleased and proud to be hosting this month’s Business Mum’s Blog Carnival here at Mumazing!
Just in case you haven’t read all the fantastic posts that have appeared in the previous six carnivals (and I highly recommend you go and read them if so. Well, after you have finished reading this one of course) the blog carnival is the brainchild of Helen Lindop over at Business Plus Baby. Somewhere else you need to go and read once you are done here.
Anyway, on with the show. And we have some beauties here today.
First up is the well supported Tracey-Jane Hughes from bras4mums over at her blog support4women. She embodies the spirit of being a mum in business through helping and learning from others in her post Take Time… Or try reading a tale of two Sarahs, businessmum Sarah from Scrumptious Preserves tells us how she started up in business and fellow mumpreneur Sarah from ICT Together shares her story too.
Next up, two of my bestest buddies, Claire Willis from Snugbaby tells us about her 15 minutes of fame- and I am sure she’ll be up to an hour before long. Also, the fab Joanne Dewberry’s new blog turns the traditional SMART targets on their head, with a little help from MumUltrapreneur Susan Odev (quick plug- I am appearing on Susan’s Blogtalkradio show tomorrow, July 21st, so tune in!)
Of course, mention chocolate and networking and Sam and Helen at Mum’s The Boss immediately jump to mind- this month read about choosing your tribe - hey I’m in ANY tribe that offers chocolate! Helen’s Twitter v Facebook post on Business Plus Baby offers a similar challenge.
But don’t go putting any eggs in baskets just yet- Antonia from family friendly working considers the option of a portfolio career and my own contribution is how even a failed retail venture can present an opportunity.
And finally, if you are feeling tired and lethargic (as I am) think about poor Sarah from Ivy House interiors, and what she did trying to make things better- to update you she raised £120 and it took her 3hrs 38mins. Well done Sarah!
