#16 Author and Mumpreneur, Debbie Gilbert shares her Homepreneur journey
In this episode I interview Debbie Gilbert, founder of Mums Unltd and author of a brand new book, The Successful Mumpreneur. She manages 11 networking groups across the south-east of England from Northampton down to Whitstable in Kent.
She talks about the challenge of writing a book whilst running a full-time business. She advises if you are tackling a new project to block out specific time in your diary to achieve your target. Her warm personality and caring approach to supporting women starting a business from home is at the heart of the way in which she runs her networking groups.
She runs Best Business Women Awards which celebrates the achievements of women across a range of different business categories. Rather than being industry-specific, Debbie has categories which are a little different from the usual awards – Best Blogger, Best Boss, Best Coach to name a few. She holds a winners' lunch every in London where all winners, past and present, are invited. Over the years this will grow into an inspiring cohort to be part of.
