mum with a plan

I quit my secure, full time job in 2012 to start my own part time Creative Business.

It was the best decision I have ever made! I now am in an enviable position of loving my job, and being able to choose when I work. This gives me more time to spend with my family.

I hope to be able to share my knowledge with you too.
