What a fabulous book. Where was this 2 years ago when I was starting out?? I love the clear and informative structure.  The checklist of ones skills make it so much easier to work out which direction to go.  The layout of the flexible working ideas provides you with all the answers and no questions! Just the way I like a book!  Also taking into consideration your childcare arrangements even something I forget to consider now.

This is a great book if you find yourself in a position where your ‘old’ job no longer fits your new (with child) life.  If you’re open minded and ready to consider new avenues this book could be the catalyst to helping you find that holy grail – ‘work/life balance’.  The practical A-Z of flexible work ideas is excellent and even if you can’t find one that fits you perfectly I’m sure it will throw up many more ideas that you can tailor your skills to.  A great guide for mums ready to make a change!

Erica Douglas of www.littlemummy.com

“Loaded with useful and practical information, this is a book that will open up horizons.    Combining motherhood and running your own business is not for the faint-hearted but this book clearly identifies a plethora of opportunities which are possible to run side-by-side.   This is an absolute “must-read” for all mumpreneurs seeking inspiration and guidance on what to do in a no-nonsense, easy-to-read format.”

I travel the British Isles running workshops and talking to mums who wish to set up in business for themselves. Whilst some have a really clear vision of what they want to do others have no idea where to start! Now I can point them to an in-depth, practical and fascinating book which clearly and honestly explores the myriad of possibilities. And, more importantly, helps to guide the reader towards the solution that would be the best fit for them.I loved this book. A truly excellent addition to business books for mumpreneurs.

Susan Odev, Author of MumUltrapreneur

This is another really great no nonsense manual for aspiring Mumpreneurs, I just wish that I could have read something like this before I started. At Mothers of Innovation we are constantly been asked for advice from aspiring Mumpreneurs and it is great to be able to signpost them directly to Antonias books and Business Ideas for Mums it a great starting point. I particularly rate the way that Antonia and Helen have researched this book, asking the leaders in each field for no nonsense advice.
