You’ve read the blog, now get the book.

As a mum, you’ll no doubt find yourself spending most of your time looking after everyone else. But who’s looking after YOU?

I truly believe that everyone should have the opportunity to get to where they want to be emotionally, financially, and in their careers. Especially dedicated mothers. 

It’s precisely why I’ve written the Independent Mum’s Handbook. To help you realise your vision for a more independent future, through practical guidance and inspirational tips and advice, all designed to help you realise that you can be the perfect parent and fulfil your personal dreams.

The Independent Mum’s Handbook is for you if you…

  • Feel like you’ve lost your personal identity since becoming a mum
  • Have life goals you’ve always wanted to fulfil, but being a mum means you never get time to focus on YOU
  • Keep making a start on a lifelong ambition, but parenthood keeps taking over
  • Have clear aspirations, but lack the direction and knowhow you need to move forward

It’s not unusual for mothers to feel lost when reaching a major transitional point in their lives. Whether it’s becoming a first time mum, or suddenly finding yourself with time on your hands now the kids in are in school full time or left the family home, you may be wondering, what’s next for my life?

The Independent Mum’s Handbook seeks to address this dilemma, guiding you towards financial independence, helping you achieve a positive state of mental well-being and equipping you with the knowledge, direction and motivation you need to take those first steps towards the rest of your life.
