~ We keep it real, simple and honest. ~
Rather than having famous, “big” names, Mums@Work is always focussed on ‘keeping it real’. We work with experts who are well-versed with running small business (i.e. tight budgets, big dreams). Like us, these experts focus on helping ordinary business owners lead extraordinary lives. No fancy names, just real success stories of down-to-earth people who have had past success in helping small businesses grow. Mums@Work has tapped on a team of experts who have all had experience starting, running and growing a small business. A handful of them are Mumpreneurs (or Dadpreneurs) themselves – so each of them are aware of the challenges of balancing family & business.
