Definition of Plan:

A scheme or method of acting, doing, proceeding or making, developed in advance.

A specific project or definite purpose.

My name is Allison and I am a Mum with a Plan!


I want to show you how you can set up your own CREATIVE BUSINESS with limited time, money and experience.

After taking the plunge in 2011 with no experience at all, I’d like to share what I have done (and the mistakes I made), so you too can enjoy part time work.

I will also be your very own ‘crash test dummy’ as I start to build my blog and will take you with me on my journey!

Throw in a general family blog about myself, The Kid, The Dog, and how I live with a condition called M.E. and there we have Mum with a Plan!

You can read a bit more about me right here.

I will be adding content hopefully a few times a week and will be making you some FREE RESOURCES to help you with your plan so please keep checking back.

Don’t worry, I’m not one of those crazy people who will email you twice a week to tell you that my child has Chicken Pox and here’s a recipe for 7 Lentil Soup. If I had the time to email people twice a week I would be using that time more wisely! You will probably hear from me about once a month (if that).

When you subscribe, I will send you details of the closed Facebook group I have just set up. It’s only in it’s infancy (October, 2019), but my aim is for it to grow into a happy, helpful community for like minded people who want to set up and build their own creative business.
