Hi, I'm Michelle, founder of BizMums.
Back in 2012 I had a full-time job, my own business, a 3 year old and a baby on the way. I was so worried about how I was going to manage it all. I wanted to leave my office job, grow my own business and be with my young family - but how?
I enjoyed the support and motivation I got from networking groups and I looked for one that I could take my children along to, as childcare for 2 was going to be difficult. But there weren’t any groups like that!
So I decided to create it myself…and started BizMums, a networking group for mums in business that you can bring your children to. I set up one meeting in my home town, used social media to spread the word and waited…
My goal was simple: To give mums the support and knowledge they needed to create the work-life balance they wanted.
The result: SUCCESS! In that first meeting we had a lot of mums and such positive comments. I knew I was on to something.
Just 3 years on, we now have 80 groups all over the UK, many Members and a team of Hosts and Co-ordinators to support them and help to run it all.
We have online support for our Members, with facebook groups for each area for networking outside of Meetups. Plus Members can access an archive of business tips and information on this website, to keep them informed and motivated.
I now have 3 children and am managing a business I love, helping other mums to do the same!
