Why “Glorified Secretary”? Because that’s how my fellow secretaries and I used to jokingly refer to those of us who had aspirations of ‘better lives’ away from the employment rat race. We often spoke of running our own businesses, but “what on earth would we do?” we’d lament.
Well, I decided to do what I do best – provide excellent business support on a freelance basis. Check out my website http://www.antecell.co.uk. It’s a simple concept. Provide down-to-earth, no-nonsense, affordable business support to individuals, start-ups and small businesses. It is daunting to ‘go it alone’, but empowering nonetheless. And I can honestly say I have no regrets.
It does of course mean I get very little sleep (here I am still burning the midnight oil – and I just know I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow). As a mother of two (beautiful) and very energetic kids, you’d think I’d sensibly value my sleep and snatch it whenever I could, wouldn’t you? But then if you are reading this and are a working mum yourself then you’ll know exactly what I’m about won’t you.
