Mumpreneurs and Dadpreneurs

Combining parenting with a dream career can seem daunting. Finding business mentors has always been easy for me, but to find someone to help me with the personal challenges of combining a career legacy with having children was difficult. There seemed to be no role model to rely on.

On this page is to share my experiences and insights which I wish someone had told me about when I was in my twenties. I’d also love to feature other inspiring women and men who have a story to tell that may be valuable to others.

I am a big advocate of bringing children up in community and especially amongst people with an open mind and open heart. Whether you are doing it alone, with a partner, or with friends, parenting in this way can become a real joy and increasingly stress free;   If you are interested to know more, here is a share about some of the things that have worked for me.

In my book I also write about how living in an eco self-build community can create empowered children and can allow you to have it all: a family and a career in something you are passionate about.

I am intending to post more on this topic here and would love to hear from you if this is supportive and what interests you most.

One idea is a podcast interviewing inspiring mums and dads.

I have met so many incredible parents who have both taken full responsibility for their children and for the mission at work, and are juggling this in incredible ways.

  • Do you have a story to tell?
  • Do you know any inspiring parents I could interview?
  • Do you have any burning questions?
  • Are there any topics you would like to see covered?
  • Do you prefer videos, articles or podcasts?
