Hi I'm Sam and i won Business Mum of the Month in April.
Im a married mum of 2 children and live in Burton on Trent. My hubby is from Lichfield so with there being no group in my home town i decided to join the Lichfield and Tamworth group and knowing parts of Lichfield helped as it meant i wasn't going to get lost in a town i didn't know.
Louise and the other mums have been amazingly supportive and friendly and made me feel extremely welcome. I was very nervous at first, attending my first meeting in January, but pushed myself out of my comfort zone told myself i needed to do this not just for my business but to boost my confidence at getting out there and meeting other people.
On joining the group i was already running two businesses, one as a Mobile Nail Technician and the other as a Business Owner with Forever Living. I set these both up as i didn't want to return to work have to pay out nursery fees for my son and before and after school clubs for my daughter. I wanted to be the mum who could drop of and collect my kids from school and be able to attend assembly and sports day etc.
Recently i have set up a third business using my creative and crafty skills, making nappy cakes, jewellery, bookmarks and keyring with more items being added all the time. I was inspired by one of the other mums who makes beautiful Vintage Jewellery with bits of old Jewellery ive always been very creative so thought id give it a go.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Louise and the other mums for nominating me as Business Mum of the Month it means a lot to me and I'm honoured they took the time and thought i was worthy of it.
I took forward to the exciting time ahead and getting to know more mums who join the group and supporting them as mums have done for me.
Ive grown in confidence so much since my first meeting in January and really look forward to our monthly meeting. I feel i have made some excellent friends not just networking mummies.
