So, you’re looking for some guidance and support in building and growing a family friendly business? Here’s all the information you need on how I work with my clients.
Who do I work best with?
I set up The Mumpreneur’s Mentor to work exclusively with mums as I am passionate about helping you to have your own successful family friendly business so that you can be the best mum you can be and work on your terms.
Whether you are selling a product or are a service based business, I work with the mum behind it as that is what I’m best at!
How can I help you?
Unlike a lot of coaches, I don’t just help you figure out what you want to do, I will actually show you what you need to do to achieve your goals so you have a clear plan to be following after each and every session – consider it a mixture of coaching, mentoring and training.
Some of the things I’m currently helping my clients with:
Figuring out how to go from idea to product or service
You know what you want to do but are a little overwhelmed with what you actually need to do to turn your big idea into reality. Whether its a new product or service, we will work together to get clear on the essential steps you need to take (and the ones you don’t) and break it down in to simple tasks so you know exactly what you need to be dong and when – no more overwhelm!
Getting your marketing message right
This is a big thing with a lot of my clients when we first start working together, they are not clear enough in who they are working with. We will really drill down on what your ideal client looks like (who are more than happy to pay what you’re worth), where they hang out and then craft your marketing message so that you are only talking with ideal clients – this one area can save you money, time and headaches!
Automating your business
Mapping out the processes you need in your business and then creating systems so that you can automate, streamline or outsource as much as possible leaving you to focus on the strategy and income earning tasks.
Getting the all important work / life balance right
The whole point to starting your business is to work family friendly hours. Now don’t get me wrong, you will have to work hard to make it a success but there are lots of things we can do to make sure that the time you do spend working is used as efficiently as possible.
Identifying any missed opportunities
I’m really good at looking at a business or idea and honing in on any areas that are missed opportunities to earning extra income. You’ll be surprised at some of the ways you can easily make small changes that will really benefit your bank account!
Before talking to Emma, I was unclear on a target market / niche – I had too much varied experience in many areas and industries to focus on just one. This resulted in too wide a market to tap into
Emma helped me identify my actual specialism – that of identifying and implementing strategic solutions. As we talked about my specialism I realised that it was what I truly loved doing.
Emma was extremely perceptive to be able to pin point my specialism without me even knowing. For me the best thing was the ‘light bulb’ moment.
I would recommend a boost breakthrough session with Emma to anyone, whatever stage your business is at. It might be worth doing this at the early stages to make sure you are on the right track!
Why you want me as your coach
I have a no nonsense approach so I won’t take any excuses for not doing the work – no laziness allowed!! At the end of the day, I don’t want to waste my or your own time if you aren’t prepared to do the work as I could be working with another mum who will do whatever it takes to build her own super successful business.
If you want someone who will tell you what you want to hear, go elsewhere – I’m not the coach for you.
However, if you want someone to show you step by step EXACTLY what you need to be doing, act as your guide so you avoid the common mistakes and also keep you accountable (giving you a kick up the bum when you need it!) – then I’m your girl.

Sound like something that would benefit you?
There are a few options to choose from to work directly with me.
Business Boost Breakthrough Session – this is best place to start
During your 60 minute session (on the phone or Skype), we can get clear on what your perfect business will be like and how you CAN achieve it, as well as create a clear plan outlining the steps you need to take in the next 90 days – making sure it is completely doable looking after the kids as well.
This is your call so you can decide what specific areas you want to focus on, they could include:
- Figuring out how to go from idea to product or service to avoid overwhelm
- Crafting your marketing message so it speaks only to your ideal clients
- Mapping out how to automate and streamline your business
- Specific strategies to leverage your time
- How to become a productivity queen
- Discover where you are wasting opportunities to be earning additional income in your business (this applies to both new and existing business mums!)
There are lots we can cover in this session.
I don’t know about you, but whenever I have a call with my mentor, you can guarantee that I think of an important question after I’ve put the phone down. That’s why you will also get 30 days email support following your call so that you can ask any questions about implementing your plan – means no confusion on your part.
To give you an idea of my availability, I usually book these sessions 2 – 3 weeks in advance. I don’t want you to think you could get a session the same day!

ANOTHER HAPPY MUM:
My greatest challenge before my Business Boost Breakthrough Session today was that I am totally starting from scratch with no experience at all in business management, secretarial work, or computer skills. That in itself was not an issue for me as I am confident that these are definitely things that I can acquire understanding of as I study them. However, up until today, I have not been able to make contact with anyone who has ‘been there and done that’. I had no idea as to any realistic time scales for being able to understand just exactly how long I could expect to be learning for before I would be ready to start trading my business hours to clients for work. This was a considerable hindrance to being able to put together a comprehensive business plan.
Emma has been a tremendous help to me because through her obviously extensive understanding and through her own experiences, she has helped to encourage me to realise a realistic timing for the completion of some of my key secretarial studies, and has coached me to be encouraged in the fact that I can realise my personal dreams of attaining the kind of business and success level that I dream of and am determined to meet. Emma has simplified my outlook, cutting out pointless stresses over what I had once considered to be a mountain of things which would significantly affect and delay my business set up completion. Emma has put me together a considerably shorter set up plan which will see me trading business in just a very few months’ time!
The best thing about my session with Emma is that she has inspired me to realise my dreams on a specific time scale and she has therefore given me a specific time scale to be even further motivated by. I am excited about where I am going with things and I no longer feel disconnected from someone who has with the necessary experience taken a very helpful and practical look into my dreams with me.
I would definitely recommend a Business Boost Breakthrough Session to other mums. Being a mum is a full time and demanding job as it is, let alone being a mum who is also setting up her own business alongside! It could be a very stressful and lonely time trying to juggle all, but a Business Boost Breakthrough session not only gives you a time management strategy, it also gives you the encouragement not to give up when you can see that you are not alone, and you get confirmation that you are not working towards something which is impossible.
I would really like to extend my thanks to Emma for generously spending time giving me such valuable support today,

My greatest challenges before working with Emma were marketing and pricing. Marketing has never been a strong point of mine, so I was finding it difficult to actually get new clients. Also, I was seriously undervaluing my time and efforts when it came to pricing my services.
Emma was fantastic in that she spotted several things straight away and provided a much needed ‘kick up the bum’ in terms of my pricing structure (or rather, lack of!). Emma realised that my lack of confidence in selling myself to potential new clients, meant that I was often under-pricing my services to keep clients happy. After the session with Emma I thought about the new prices I would be charging from the new year, which are much more in line with what I should be charging. Emma also gave me some excellent advice on marketing and helped me to think about ‘who’ I wanted to target. Whereas up to now my target market has been extremely vague, and thus I haven’t been really targeting anyone at all, Emma made me think about smaller groups to focus my marketing on, so this is something I am also thinking about.
The best thing about the working with Emma was that she was very honest and quickly spotted my weaker areas, which were all fundamentally related to my confidence. It was great to receive such wonderful advice which has actually boosted my confidence as I now feel a lot more focused and certain of where I am taking my business.
I would highly recommend working with Emma. I found it invaluable in terms of pointing me in the right direction. It’s so difficult setting up a business especially when you are doing it alone. It can be really daunting and when you have a weak area or a lack of confidence it is often easy to just quit. I found that my session with Emma gave me a renewed focus and sense of direction, and has certainly made me feel a lot more confident about the future of my business. I value myself a lot more now which will be reflected in my new pricing structure.
