Competition: Maternity Leavers – Soozi Baggs

Maternity leavers book Maternity Leavers – Soozi Baggs

Enter the Competition

As a virtual assistant we often come across mums hoping to set up work-from-home businesses after having a baby…

Having done two lots of maternity leave whilst running my business and daily juggling 2 young children’s needs, I think I am qualified to point out the realities of being a WAHM sometimes don’t live up to the dream (NB: my children eat a lot of pizza!). And that’s why I like this book so much – Soozi Baggs does not dress up the realities of being a mum in fantasy. She’s a realist, but a positive one too.

So whether you want to be a kitchen table tycoon or simply to cut down your hours, this book guides you through all the different choices.  I had a sneaky peak at the section on becoming a VA and the advice is spot on – a well researched book!

This is a comprehensive list of options available to new parents and how you balance that against your work life. It gives you some useful tips on how to make whatever you choose work for you – it’s good to have an open conversation about maternity leave at long last.
