Set up in 2012 Motivating Mum East Hertfordshire offers networking and information term-time only morning events. The events are completely supportive and flexible, so women can come to whichever they prefer, and include dedicated time for informal networking as well as some practical bite sized business tips from speakers on a range of topics. These include: social media for business; time management; business planning; bookkeeping; marketing; legal essentials; health; work-life balance and more.
The group is run by Stephanie Adams, a PR, marketing and event professional and a mum of two young children. Stephanie chose to start running Motivating Mum events in her area of Hertfordshire so she could use her experience and skills to work more flexibly around her family and to be able to support other women to do the same. However, you do not need to be a mum to attend the events.
Since the group launched Stephanie has not only run Motivating Mum networking, business information and product display events but also the first ever Motivating Mum Conference. The conference took place in May 2014 and nearly 50 women attended.
At the end of each event everyone receives an information pack to take away. The packs are updated each time.
Motivating Mum is child-friendly and so accompanying pre-school children are welcome. Stephanie additionally provides PR, marketing and research support on an individual and flexible basis to support local businesses in their growth and development.
Stephanie really enjoys running Motivating Mum events: “I feel privileged to help support women as they flexibly grow and develop their businesses alongside managing the needs of family life. I look forward to continuing to welcome women in the future and I am always keen to listen to feedback to make sure the events are providing what is needed at the right time”

I will be updating and improving the Daily Dose of Motivation newsletter so that it includes the best bits of two brilliant blogs and websites - so if you haven't signed up for that then make sure you do.
Mum's the Boss also has a membership scheme, which I will be extending across both sites. Members have access to premium training materials and content each month, and also have the possibility of advertising their business across the full spectrum of readers, viewers and social media fans of both websites. All this costs just £7.50 per month so take a look today.
