I know a lot of you mums out there would love to go back to work. You may have a child and feel like there is just something holding you back from getting back to work, like child-care, or that sudden lack of flexibility you will suffer from stepping back into the office.

Believe me, I have lost count of the number of times my mum has told me she gave up a brilliant career to mother the four of us, as well as 2 step brothers. She claims that she doesn’t have the time to go back to work anymore, to which I respond “What if there was something you really wanted to do? Would you find the time?”

You have just started your kitchen table business and you don’t have marketing budget. You just need to build a website and create content for it but don’t know where to start. You have been told to write a press release to announce the launch of your product, service or business but you don’t know how to do it. You want to ramp up your social media presence but you don’t have the experience. Sounds familiar?

Most start-up and mumpreneurs’ businesses don’t have money to waste in marketing and public relations, especially at the beginning. Public Relations can be very efficient and cost-effective but you can also burn a lot of time/money if you don’t know how to do it. Publicity is about spreading the word effectively through media coverage. Big PR agencies are expensive and are often run by people who have no children and do not understand the risks attached to family-run businesses.

I can help you set your operation up and teach you how to do it with affordable DIY PR tools and training.

Every Summer at the end of the school year, I head off to Italy and I start a period of real digi detox by switching off my social media due to high roaming charges on the smartphone. The result is increased quality time spent reading, writing and deep thinking not to mention the added family activities.

My digi detox also involves no TV or screen time of any kind (except for my checking work emails).

Walking and talking with friends (the so-called Yackety Yackety ritual), fine dining as well as practising more sport or fitness replace the social media & blogging frenzy.
