If you’re looking for a new business idea that is flexible enough to work around the children or any other commitments, virtual assistance has been a viable and lucrative option for many mums.

If you’re a Mothers Who Work regular, you’ll know that I also run a tuition business called Geek School. With more than 100 students attending different schools, and coming from different areas, keeping up with what the children are saying (slang, for ‘old ladies’ like us!) is a task, I tell you!
Being a mum is a full time job in itself – and with many mums now also working to earn some cash too, there are a lot of demands on a new mother’s time. Some jobs at home can easily be left to slide: you can get away with not doing the ironing every day, for example, and the sofa covers can always wait until next week to be washed.

Social stereotypes are everywhere and the workplace is no different! It’s amazing how, even in 2018, women as men do not have a level playing field when it comes to their expected behaviours. If a man is assertive in the workplace, he’s a great boss, or an asset to the team, but a woman doing exactly the same is labelled bossy, confrontational or a b*tch.
