I’m Suzannah; an entrepreneurial business woman who’s passionate about inspiring others to find their superness and be successful…
I live in the UK with my husband and 2 young children. My first business venture was back in 2008 when I joined a direct sales business. It just kind of happened! I wasn’t really thinking about starting a business but once the opportunity presented itself to me, it became incredibly tempting…I loved the products, I could run it part-time and it was flexible around my children who were both under 3 at the time.
After setting up a business blog and social media accounts, I quickly discovered I LOVED working online and I was pretty good at it too. I was the first person in my company to grow a business solely online.
Over the next few years, I tried other ventures, mainly in direct sales, before I decided to evolve my business blog into a flexible working website (Work for Mums) which is now one of the most popular jobs websites for mums in the UK.
However, the journey was by no means as clear cut as it reads above.
I had lots of business failures and personal struggles which really affected my mindset and mental health...
I’ve had times where I’ve felt completely overwhelmed, my confidence at rock bottom and desperately lonely.
I got to the stage in 2013 where I was ready to throw in the towel. Quit. Give up. I was running a business I liked, but felt isolated and I just wasn’t making enough money; I was a Desperate Dora and it was obvious. Then my husband got really ill and he had to give up work. It felt like everything was against me.
It was a turning point; a butt kick moment. I HAD to figure out a way to make it work.
I attended a business start-up course in my area and learnt more about planning, goal setting and all the other vital components you need to run a profitable business. I took a real step back and started to work on my business, rather than in it. I streamlined, I outsourced, I was much more disciplined about my work focus and I spent a LOT more time on my mindset and self-development.
Slowly, I started to reap the rewards. My business Work for Mums is now one of the most popular websites in the United Kingdom for mums to find flexible working resources and jobs, I’ve built a social following of over 50k people, I’ve won some amazing awards and gained online recognition for my business success – something I never dreamt I could achieve.
BUT early 2015 I realised something was missing. I liked running my business but had a niggling feeling that I could be doing something more fulfilling.
I knew that my journey could help other women in some way, so I went with my gut instinct and started running a Facebook support group and page to reach out to other women in business by sharing business tips and answering questions.
I set up this site in 2015 and my monthly members club launched in February 2017. My aim is to help you grow your business online like I have.
