From the Author
Welcome to the world of Mum Ultrapreneurs! The aim of this book is to inspire you to take that idea that has been rolling around in your head and turn it into reality. Set up on your own. Be your own boss. The largest emerging economy in the UK and Ireland is that of the WAHMs (Work at home Mums) or Kitchen Table Tycoons. We interviewed over 30 of these enterprising women, from brand leaders to start-ups, and found that they are ordinary mums doing amazing things in business and you can be one too. Let this book and the stories within it inspire you to "just do it". And please let us know how you get on.

After the story, you can learn more about Susan and Mark's SPARKLES principle. SPARKLES, in this book, stands for
You can see how these principles apply in Gemma's story then read Susan and Mark's explanation, plus examples of how real businessmums have used them in their own lives and businesses. In the final part of this comprehensive book there is a guide to putting the principles into action yourself.
It's written with a very feminine mind set, focusing on the emotional journey it is to start your own business. All the practical stuff you need to do to start a business can be read in hundreds of other books and on the internet. Knowing how to register a business or how to find a manufacturer doesn't make it any easier to do if you are not emotionally ready for it. This book will help you take ACTION which in my opinion is the most important part of getting anywhere.
If you are a woman who knows that feminine values in business is the way forward there's no doubt you will like and benefit from this book.
You don't need to have a business brain to benefit from this book. It's written in a way that's accessible for everyone, regardless of whether you have any business acumen or not. If you're looking for a book to give you a kick up the backside and get you really excited about taking the first steps to get your business off the ground whilst balancing kids and home life then definitely read this!
It isn't a step by step guide, but it is a really good read. I can't wait for her next book.
