Running from 3 October – 10 October, the inaugural Business Mums Week will include activities and meet-ups across the UK to celebrate women who balance a working life with family life.
It aims to inspire more mums to start a business from home, encourage mumpreneurs through the provision of information and ideas for their business, and to develop online and offline support through a national network of working mums.
The first Mumpreneur Annual Conference will officially launch the week of activities in Birmingham.
In the lead-up to Business Mum Week, MumsClub is also inviting all mumpreneur businesses to enter the free Mumpreneur Awards.
MumsClub founder Jane Hopkins says: “Being self employed is the perfect way to combine family life with generating a second income into the home. Women now have the freedom to get paid to do something they love. Great for household finances, great for self-esteem, great for the work-life balance. Starting up from home is low cost, low risk, and from a personal point of view, is incredibly rewarding.”
