One of the best stories coming out of successful cookery show Great British Bake Off is Nadiya Hussain’s whose ups and downs and final win was watched by 14.5million in 2015. Nadiya (31) is a London Mum and lives in Milton Keynes with her husband Abdal, sons Musa (9) and Dawud (8) and daughter Maryam (5). Over the past year she has had to learn how to deal with instant success and to ignore racist and sexist comments on social media. Nadiya has also listened to her kids’ advice when writing her children’s cookbook and the result is Nadiya’s Bake Me A Story, a unique hybrid of children’s recipe and storybook aimed at bringing families into the kitchen to spend time sharing stories and cooking. I recently met Nadiya at a Disney’s tea party to celebrate the DVD release of Alice Through the Looking Glass where she baked the Mad Hatter’s cake.

If there’s one person I personally look at as a role model for a driven mumpreneur is Rebecca Adlington and I am honoured to have interviewed her for the London Mums magazine Summer issue. Read the full heartwarming interview in our latest print magazine.

Recently she was involved in the London 2016 LEN European Aquatics Championships as a coach and presenter and now she is heading to Rio to be a commentator during the Olympic Games.

In between these big jobs she has managed to inspire children leading a campaign from Disney, Change4Life and the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) that sees the launch of themed family swim sessions at hundreds of pools across the UK as well as new 10 Minute Shake Up activities inspired by the new Disney·Pixar blockbuster, Finding Dory. Rebecca was joined by her colleague and British sporting champion Tom Daley. Together they encourage children to just keep movinglike Dory in the super funny film. The charitable initiative  which runs from 22nd July until 4th September aims to make exercise fun and help children get the 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity they need each day.

Do you miss the challenge, fulfillment and rewards of your old professional life? Perhaps you took a part-time role that doesn’t make the most of your talents? Are you ready to return to the career of your dreams, but worry about the barriers you may face?

Many professionals reach a point in their career where they decide to take a step back, or make a complete break.

If you made that choice a while ago, you may be thinking it’s time for another change. Unfortunately for many, time out of the workforce is often unaccompanied by a loss of confidence and it is all is too easy to believe that no-one will value your skills in the time you have available.
