In Mumboss, Vicki Psarias, founder of HonestMum.com, shares her #mumboss manifesto for surviving and thriving at work and at home. Vicki writes about everything from juggling work and family, to regaining your confidence after having a baby and battling imposter syndrome.
An award-winning blogger and vlogger, in Mumboss, Vicki shares how to turn your passions into a business that suits the modern mum's lifestyle - all you need is a table and a laptop. Mumboss is full of practical advice, tips and tricks to help fellow #mumbosses navigate both the real and digital worlds. Vicki's funny, fresh approach to life and work as a mum has brought her a loyal fanbase and a brilliantly successful business: her blog Honest Mum is one of the UK's most popular parenting and lifestyle sites, and the blog combined with Vicki's social channels has an average monthly reach of 1 million. A Lean In for the blogging and vlogging generation, Mumboss is an essential book for all parents, whether they are returning to work or looking to start a new career, as well as anyone looking to build their brand or business online.
I live and breathe the Mumboss way of life and want to offer you the confidence to do so too. I want to prepare you for the highs, the lows, the guilt, and the joy, informing and inspiring you, so like me, you too can survive and thrive at work and at home. I thought kids would hinder my career before I became a Mumboss. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
The entrepreneurial opportunities presented by the digital revolution and the kinds of communities that exist on the Internet now are just as liberating for women as Tupperware parties were in the 1950s and 60s, offering them a freedom and flexibility that traditional 9-5 work can’t.
This book will help you follow your heart and strategise your new business. It will also support you as you prepare to return to work after maternity leave or time away.
