When I broke my shoulder in June this year, the reality of running my business and looking after two sons under the age of three, as a single parent, hit hard.  My company, Cause4, was just about to move to new offices, there were training courses and workshops to be delivered nationwide, clients to service, staff to manage and deadlines to meet.  On top of that, my sons and I were moving to a new house in a rural part of Norfolk.  Being told that I couldn’t drive, lift, or …

My current business Stem + Glory grew from a lifelong passion for plant based foods. Both from a cooking perspective (I love to cook!) and a desire to help people lead healthier and more compassionate lives. I really do believe that the future is plant based and the environmental messages …

My name is Stephanie Marko and I never had any intention of being a mumpreneur.  As a professional, I gave up my salary work when my first child was born in 2002 and took up the hardest job I would ever have in my life: being a mum.
By 2008 we had three children and I was looking forward to the day that our youngest would start nursery school.  I had plans to return to the gym and to start writing again, but I also had a nagging problem when it …
