I’ve been awaiting this for quite a few months now … so was pretty excited when it turned up in my post box this morning.
Sadly, even then I had to wait a little longer, cos although I’d managed to get out of the house reasonably well and get to the post office before everything else, when I wandered in with my little “you have a package to collect” thingy, the line was revoltingly long and I had to go and do some other stuff.
Like have the pelt ripped from my legs, a process during which I lost approximately 10 kilo. It’d been a while.
Then I had to collect a person of the boyish persuasion and bring him home so he may keep the Middlest One entertained, and vice versa.
Once I’d collected him I was able to collect my package, which contained two copies of the long awaited Business & Baby On Board by the lovely and talented Johanna Baker-Dowell.
It is, as Johanna states, “a business mum’s bible on starting, running and succeeding in business, using case studies and advice from 20 incredible business women”.
And there are some delightfully high profile names who have contributed to the book, including, but not limited to Janine Allis (of Boost Juice), Naomi Simpson (from Red Balloon) and the fabulous Kaz Cooke!
A couple of my colleagues and close friends are in there too, including my friend, the gorgeous and amazing Bra Queen, Renee, Alli of Motivating Mum and lots of others. All incredibly talented and amazing women in their own rights. Worth hearing from, in my opinion.
There may or may not also be some input from me …
Okay, I’m Chapter 20, Beating Mother Guilt.
Based on my experience with starting up and running my own business over at Real Mums.
I’m really excited!
You can get your copy of Business & Baby on Board at Johanna’s business website, Strawberry Communications – http://strawberrycommunications.com.au/books
I do have a second, signed copy sitting on my desk (it’s okay, I tidied it last week in preparation for this auspicious event – I can find it!) that I will be giving away over on Real Mums in a couple of days, next week at the latest.
Keep an eye out for it 😉
Other than that, I’m just chuffed to be able to say I’m published in another book.
(And alongside some pretty freaking awesome women! It’s kinda daunting!)
