Every parent makes a tough decision about returning to work after having children. If you have had enough of trying to do too much in too little time, and feel torn between work and spending time with your children, this book will guide you through your options. Do you make something that might be saleable? Have you got a skill you could use to earn in the evenings or while the children are asleep? What courses might help you re-train and still be there when the kids get home from school? Whether you need to earn something just to boost the family budget or have ideas for a business that could support your family if only you knew how to get started, this is the book for you.
Antonia Chitty has been working with parents running their own businesses since the birth of her daughter, Daisy. Daisy's birth spurred Antonia to move away from her career as a researcher/writer on Which? Magazine, and move into helping people learn to promote their own businesses better through www.acpr.co.uk. Antonia has a unique knowledge of the ups and downs of running your own business as a mum, not just based on her own experience but also on the experiences of her clients and of the hundreds of mums in business she comes into contact with in her network. She has also interviewed many parents who have returned to employment after the birth of their children.
