“The juggle is real” is a term that Boss Mums everywhere understand. To run your own business whilst having children is an incredible challenge of multitasking and time management. During one stage in my own motherhood journey, I was a single mum of a 2.5-year-old with some huge international clients and balancing it all was a fine art. I wish that more mums could be given the toolset to manage this balance to help them stay calm in the intensity, so I was excited to see a new book release this year called MumBoss by top award-winning blogger The Honest Mum aka Vicki Psarias. I am excited to be able to ask Vicki more about how to survive and thrive at work and at home.
Hi Vicki. Welcome to No Mum Is An Island. I am a great believer that no mum or dad should have to do everything themselves, we can’t possibly know it all, and we need all the support we can get, there is a wealth of information out there to help us upgrade our parenting experience, to make our lives easier and this website is a hub for just that! We love you have upgraded your life by building and growing your Honest Mum success alongside motherhood and by sharing how you have done that with others.
You are one of the world’s most successful bloggers. Can you tell us about your blog Honest Mum?
What advice would you give to other mums who want to start their own blog?
Your book Boss Mum is a bible for any mum that’s trying to start her own business (blog or otherwise). What would you say is the most important step for mums who want to balance work and family?
As an Honest Mum, you are really understanding of the pressures of motherhood, what do you think is the biggest problem mums come up against and how can that be tackled.
You are undoubtedly an inspirational leader, your blog Honest Mum is a huge success, and the reviews of your book are incredible. How does that make you feel? Women are notoriously famous for feeling like imposters and don’t let themselves bathe in the recognition they deserve, do you have a tool to help get over that?
Can you tell us about the courses you run?
Across these courses (which you can binge like a boxset or dip in and out of , at your leisure), I share everything I’ve learnt as a professional blogger and bestselling author so mothers can build a digital business and work flexibly around their family. This deepened learning is as relevant as ever, particularly as we’re experiencing such a profoundly difficult period due to the coronavirus with so many of us seeking greater financial security, and flexibility in order to juggle homeschooling our children, with work.
My first course, Confidence To Go For It! shares how to build confidence and resilience, overcoming self-doubt and the imposter syndrome so mums can carve out a business and thrive in this democratic digital marketplace.
It’s just $9 (£7) and also gives you FREE access to my private Confidence to Go For It FB group.
The Ignite Insta course shares how I storytell on Instagram and continuously grow an engaged audience there helping you to create dynamic content and how best to work with brands on your grid, stories and IGTV.
It’s $47. Click on the link HERE to buy:
