Episode 10 Following Your Passion – with Kate Butcher supporting Mums in business
Did you know that 50% of people dream of starting their own business, are you one of them?
Have you always dreamed of following your passion and starting your own business? As a mum, sometimes it makes more sense to create a business that you can work around the family – rather than your family having to fit around your work.
“It makes you re-assess what your priorities are and whether you are getting enjoyment out of what you are doing when you are away from your children. It makes you re-think what is important in life.”
For me, it comes down to this idea of finding balance in your life. Balance between work, family, self care, fun, rest. Making time for the things you want to do while still being able to support your family.
But maybe you aren’t a natural planner (that’s me). Or you are passionate about the nature of your business but feel bogged down with all of the tasks that are required of you. Its liberating to know that you don’t need to be good at everything – Kate’s role is to support you in all the areas that aren’t so natural for you. The areas outside of your zone of expertise. She is a planning queen, and knows the ins and outs of what your business needs.
She leads a team of VAs within her business Paperclips Included, to support Mums who run their own businesses. More recently, Kate has been supporting Mums to launch and set up their businesses, with all of the foundations in place that they will need to build a successful and sustainable business. Kate loves to help busy Mums to streamline processes and systems within both their business and family lives, ensuring that there is time for all of the essential roles that a Business owning Mum has to complete.
In this episode, Kate shares her top tips for following your passion and creating a business that works for you and your family.
