How to run a ‘successful’ business

Earlier this year, I was  invited to speak to a group of mumpreneurs, hosted by the fabulous company, Mums in Technology, to share my thoughts on ‘how to run a successful business’.

In the workshop, we explored some questions like: What is success? What is a successful business? Can you ‘achieve’ success? How can you create success?

It was a small room, with a creche in one corner for the mums’ babies (so apologies for the video angle), but I hope that by watching this video of the first 16 minutes of the 90-minute workshop I ran, you’ll be able to reflect on what ‘success’ means to you, and what you can do differently to help you achieve it.


I ran an online training session about the approach I use to build start-ups without sacrificing my health or time with my family. Click here to find out more (and watch the video).
