After a string of amazing weeks it only seems fitting that things have gone terribly wrong. Having lost a major client I’m facing the very real possibility that I’ll have to return to work for a bit and put a pause on my Work from Home dream. Especially as my car has started making some very worrying and most likely expensive sounds. So it has been extra important to carry on with my gratitude journal. I need to stay focused. Remain calm and keep my balance.

So here are my top 10 moments from the past 7 days; Continue reading Feeling Calm #27

Win an amazing Mumpreneur course

You may have guessed from the name of my blog, Any Way To Stay At Home, I did not want to be tied to the office after the birth of my son. I don’t think of myself as a Mumpreneur, but maybe I am.

I like many mum’s wanted the freedom to be my own boss and work from home. It has not been easy. Not at all. In fact just this week things have gone wrong for me (post to follow).

Despite all the up’s and down’s, home is still where I want to be. I don’t want to have to worry about my son being ill and how I can balance caring for him and a job. I love being able to go to everything without any worries. I am in charge of my schedule. Mainly I really love just being able to maximise my time with him.

Well here’s where I pass over to Josie from Mumpreuner Inspiration, to tell you all about herself and her new course.
