Listed under: Business Mum of the Month
I launched my business Mama 2 Mama back in March. I buy and sell new and nearly new maternity wear. Since launching interest levels and sales have steadily grown. June has been my busiest month so far. It started with my first piece of publicity in a local newspaper. This felt like a real achievement and hopefully this is the beginning of more Mums knowing that my business exists. http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/business-news/uk-coventry-business-news/2012/06/25/business-news-more-and-more-women-going-self-employed-92746-31255702/
It’s been a busy month with lots of parcels posted nationally and the orders continue to come through. I have reached my 200th sale and I have also launched my website this month (with lots of help from my hubby http://www.mama2mamadirect.co.uk/ . To top it all off I was awarded Coventry Business Mum of the Month by Networking Mummies. I felt really humbled and it has boosted my confidence in what I am doing. If anyone is looking for a networking meeting the Coventry group is a must – its FREE, child friendly and a lovely group of mummies all with different areas of expertise to share.
