Meet Hayley...


I’m mum to two gorgeous boys with our third child due November. I worked for ten years as a Primary Teacher but when the work life balance became too much of a juggling act I stopped work to focus on my family.

I now tutor occasionally, teach children’s yoga classes (I’m a qualified kids instructor) and spend my spare time writing and publishing my own books.

I wrote my first picture book when my first son was born and refused to sleep, hence the title Charlie Bear Won’t Go to Sleep! Two more followed in this series and since then I haven’t stopped.


I’m a huge bookworm, as are my six and one year old boys and I love the thought of someone somewhere smiling as they read one of my stories.

Currently I’ve started publishing journals. My first ‘My Little Growth Journal’ is geared towards encouraging a growth mindset in primary age children. As I write this I’m also awaiting delivery of my new title, “My Little Life Journal’. This is aimed at supporting teenage/preteen girls with anxiety and the pressures faced by picture perfect social media.


What advice would you give to your 21 year old self?

I wouldn’t. My life is far from perfect and I’ve made many mistakes, but I firmly believe that everything has led me to where I am today.

Can you give us 3 tips for juggling motherhood, life and business?

Routine works well for me. I’m probably the least strict person I know when it comes to this, but still, particularly on school days, we have a daily routine that keeps everything ticking over and avoids that ‘I can’t possibly do it all’ feeling.

I also try not to compare myself too much to others and worry about whether I’m doing things ‘right’. I do what works for me, my family and my business. If that means the children sit in front of Peppa Pig for half hour whilst I work, so be it.

Prescheduling social media posts is a must for me. Once a month I try to sit for an hour or so and schedule as many posts as possible in advance. That way I don’t feel I’m staring at my screen all day, distracted from the moment right now.

What is the best thing about being a WAHM?

For me it’s being able to do the school run. I love being there to hear how my sons day went and kick a football around the park on the way home. It’s the little moments that pass by so quickly that being a work at home mum allows me to treasure.


Can you discuss something you are working on right now to improve your work/life balance?

I’m working on giving myself a bit of me time (something I plan to write about in my next journal!) I’ve just cleared my conservatory of junk and am slowly turning it into an office/yoga room just for me. Somewhere I can take a time out and relax.

What WAHM has inspired you lately?

I think in general it’s the admins of the various Facebook groups that inspire me. I love that despite being crazy busy they still make time to offer a support network for other mums. It’s so important to give back when you have success.


What are you reading right now?

I’ve just finished The Lido and have started Why Mummy Drinks. I love the confessional writing style as it is very similar to my own. I hope to write an adult fiction book one day!

How do you practice regular self care?

Yoga! I took it up on the advice of a friend after my first child was born and although I may not be a natural, I find it really helps me to stop and switch off for a while. That’s part of the reasons I included it in My LIttle Life Journal. I wanted to give that same sense of inner peace to young girls.

Meet Shari...

Freedom has always been a huge motivator for me. When I was 18 I decided I would have a company called Green Jelly Marketing and this would be how I would build my freedom and be rich. The same year, I also decided I would have a baby boy called Archie after I was told at 15 that I would never have a baby.

Fast forward through a more traditional track of A-levels, a degree, a corporate job and an MBA to the day I found out I was pregnant - 10 years after the decision and 2 months after I was told I needed a hysterectomy. My manifestation worked and I was pregnant with my miracle baby, Archie.

6 months into the pregnancy, Archie’s Dad left and I found myself alone, 200 miles from my family and friends and working in a job I was counting days until I could leave to welcome my little bear into my life.

When Archie was born, I worked throughout my maternity and travelled a 400 mile round trip, leaving Archie with my parents 3 days a week and working a pub job to make ends meet. In this moment, I knew it was also time for Green Jelly Marketing to be birthed. I did not have this beautiful boy to spend all my time away from him in a job that did not light me up.

And so Green Jelly became a thing, around working many hours, juggling lots of things and living on very little, because I had a vision. I did all the things that I see so many other Mama’s in business do - I was overwhelmed about where to start and began consuming blueprints and proven 6 figure strategies like they were oxygen itself. When I didn’t get the answers, or the 6 figure business I was promised, I bought the courses and the programmes and coaching.

Now with credit cards piled high with debts, even more overwhelm and even less time, the business was still not moving forward and I was flagging. The inevitable happened and I burnt out - hard and very fast. It was scary to be ok one minute, a little run down, and then not be able to move the next. My hands cramped up and I genuinely believed I had had a stroke. I couldn’t even put a dummy in Archie’s mouth. I was broken and alone. I knew things had to change very fast. Luckily I have a super supportive network around me always and so in the enforced period of rest that followed, I stripped back marketing to the basics I knew it was.

I grew Green Jelly Marketing by doing very little that most would recognise as actual marketing, but the company is still thriving and growing from the work I did back then.

Through my journey, I recognised that marketing and business is nothing like I had learnt in the classroom or experienced in the corporate world, yet everything I saw was still speaking to that. I became really interested in how marketing was actually about showing up as you and sharing what you passionately believe. How it is connected to alignment and even deeper than that, energy.

I began exploring marketing in a women’s world, emotional intelligence and all things energy and spirituality. I brought it into play in my business and created the hugest shifts, mostly in my life and that then turned into business goals being met.

The last year of my business has been focused on sharing this message - my obsession with making marketing easier, basing it in our own desires and energy and using all of the laws of nature to support that. This is Gentle Hustle.

In the last few months, I have also stepped into world schooling Archie - we are currently living in Bali but we have plans in place to visit an additional 6 countries this year alone. This is my version of freedom and the lifestyle I designed.

I am leading by example and have a big message to share for all the women now, whether they know they want to be in business or not. Even bigger than that, I am doing it for the children, the next generation. The more women step into Gentle Hustle, the better they are able to show up and support their children. I am living proof of this and I believe this is the ripple effect that will contribute to raising the vibration of the whole planet for generations to come.


What advice would you give to your 21 year old self?

To embrace the rebel inside me and know that the key to my success will be about breaking the rules and questioning the “norm”. To have faith in my ideas and trust in the process.

Maybe the most important piece of advice is to be aware - no matter how difficult the lesson is, how frustrating or non-sensical, be aware and open to what it means for you.

Can you give us 3 tips for juggling motherhood, life and business?

At the risk of sounding cliche, look after you first. You cannot show up for anyone if you don’t. That means your children as much as your clients!

When we are in business, it is tempting and exciting to be looking ahead. Forward thinking and planning all the time - this is what I will launch, this is what I will make, this is my impact in the world. And it is your passion so enjoy that … step into it even so that you can call it in sooner. But remember to also be present. Your little ones grow up so fast. The things I missed in the beginning have been a reminder to be more present and to make time to enjoy them too.

Trust in yourself - you don’t need to have a blueprint or a guide that actually leads to overwhelm. The more you rely on the things outside of you, the more you feel overwhelmed and burnt out. I learnt the hard way that this meant I was working longer hours and sacrificing time with my bear. The more I trusted I knew how to connect, what the way forward was and had faith that I was always supported, the less I worked and the more money I made.


Tell us something no one ever warned you about being a work at home mama!

How tempting it would be to become a domestic goddess when really I cannot stand housework! You know when you have tasks that need to be outsourced or ditched pretty fast when you find yourself reaching for the bleach instead of working!

What is the best thing about being a WAHM?


I have never compromised on being able to show up when Archie needed me. Never asked permission to see his plays. Never missed a drop off or pick up time unless I choose and never had to feel guilt if Archie was poorly and needed time to heal.

This is bigger now too because I never have to feel that we are living a life we are not in alignment with. We get to choose where we live, what we do and how his education looks.


Can you discuss something you are working on right now to improve your work/life balance?

On the whole, I have pretty good work life balance but it definitely has been dedication to have that in place. Every day I honour the feminine energy by taking care of my body, mind and soul and my masculine energy (in that order too) by being visible, connecting and making sales.

Having said that, I am definitely working on being present more. Whilst I am better than I was, travelling adds a new dynamic where it is easy to look forward to the next adventure instead of basking in the journey where we are.

The best advice anyone ever gave you?

Don’t rush!

It is very easy to fall into the 6 figure in 23 minutes trap and push so hard to have that happen. The reality is, when we lean back and allow, we speed up. Appreciate where we are now and how we can move forward without the push.

What WAHM has inspired you lately?

Danielle LaPorte - I have kinda a girl crush on her and can relate to her words so much. A lot of my work echoes hers before I fully immersed into her world. Her energy is very soft and gentle. I also appreciate that right now she is in a controversial position and that makes me love her a little bit more because even our idols are allowed to be human!

What are you reading right now?

A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson to step more into the teachings from a Course in Miracles and Pussy by Regina Thomashauer to step more into the feminine. I can never only read one book :)



How do you practice regular self care?

Every day I honour my body, mind and soul. Through things like journalling, yoga, swimming, nature, meditation, dancing, visualisations … I don’t have prescriptive approach because my inner rebel would, well, rebel.

I also like to set an intention about how I would like to feel and then have actions for how I can make it a reality. I am working a lot on femininity at the moment so things like body work, reflexology, nourishing my body, personal training, pampering, shopping, sexy underwear and great perfume feature heavily now. For me, knowing what I desire in that moment is the key to self care.

Meet Katie...

Hello Katie, please tell our readers a little about yourself, your motherhood and your business!

Hi ladies, I'm a business mentor working with female entrepreneurs to help them overcome the overwhelm, get clear on what they want to do and help them with the systems they need to become visible online. I started my first business at 18 and have started numerous since then too. I have had 6 figure businesses that I have started from scratch and businesses that I have built up and sold a few years later.

I've had local businesses as well as product and service based online. Right now, I feel more aligned than ever helping women who want to try and create a better balance in their lives by being self employed, but don't really know where to start. I naturally attract mums in business being a mum myself.

I have two children aged 10 and 8, three step children aged 20, 17 and 15 and just the one husband! We are based in Newport, South Wales. I love to travel and adore the sun so whenever we can try to get away for holidays and mini breaks where I eat too much amazing and drink too much great wine.

What advice would you give to your 21 year old self ?

I'd tell myself that I could do anything I wanted and and to not let the lack of self belief hold me back. I would tell myself to get into self development and work on me more. I would tell myself to get into YouTube and video. Oh, and most importantly,just to start!

Can you give us three tips for juggling motherhood, life and business? 

Make sure you actually take time to switch off and spend time with your family. Otherwise, if you were always working and don't switch off, you'll burn yourself out and resent spending time with family if you are always thinking about business.

Set a morning routine. I am a big fan of sticking to a routine. For me, I start with gratitude and affirmations. I find it helps keep me positive when the kids start arguing about who's reading the back of the cornflakes box! (Don't even ask!!!)

Try to create boundaries with your clients and with yourself. You are probably working for yourself to give you and your family more freedom. I don't take work calls at the weekend as that is when I am with my family. I make sure clients know they won't be able to reach me at the weekends or after a certain time in the evening.

Tell us something no one ever warned you about being a work at home Mama!

People call you up and say 'are you home?'

I'm not a at home watching Loose Women, I'm working from my home office.

Some people struggle with getting their heads around this!

What is the best thing about being a WAHM?

That I can be there for my children. I take them to school, pick them up, never miss a school concert and if they are poorly, I don't have to stress (too much) about them being home with me.

Can you discuss something you are working on right now to improve your work/life balance?

I don't think there is 100% perfect balance, but I try not to get sidetracked by house tasks when I should be working. So I try to have clearly defined times when I am in work mode and house mode.

The best advice anyone ever gave you?

Just start. If we all took action, we'd achieve so much more.


What WAHM has inspired you lately? 

I'm inspired daily by the WAHM's that I am surrounded by in my Facebook group. Also the work at home mums in other Facebook groups that I have connected and bonded with.

What are you reading right now?

Just finished 'The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck' by Sarah Knight and I've just started Unleash the Giant Within' (Tony Robbins) and I am also reading Richard Branson's latest autobiography alongside.

How do you practice regular self care?

This is something I was aware I needed to improve on for 2018, as I was always putting myself last. I am commited to drinking more water this year, practicing yoga more, and taing the time for some weekly epsom salts baths.

Additionaly, I have collaborated with a beautician, where we do a skills swap, so I am having various treatments regularly too, which is amazing!

I also love reading and try to read daily.

Meet Shelley...


Hey Shelley! Please tell our readers all about yourself, your family and your business!

I am a 40 year old mother of 3 children, twin daughters aged 13 whom I currently home educate, my son aged 5 who has autism and will be attending a resource base centre near Salisbury in Wiltshire.

My life from 2004 and the birth of my twins up to this point has been a journey through mental health, experiencing that fully and using those experiences to assist others. Along the way I discover a lot about me, my passions and also delving into the darker side, to bring about necessary healing and change. I find things that have been buried so deep, situations, traumas, people and places I thought I had let go of, start to rise up and out in the most uncomfortable, but strangely transformative way. I discover that all my feelings are valid, and slowly I gave myself permission to feel, regardless of how uncomfortable, bringing awareness and giving my traumas the space to breath and allowing all parts of my energy to return, that subconsciously, I lost through trauma. You see when we feel loss, or have an experience that shakes us to our core, we somehow disconnect at the point of reaction to that experience, and I feel, that is why we have an intense feeling of losing ourselves. However, we are never truly lost, our energy that was once whole, can be rediscovered if you so wish it. A lot has to do with mindset but generally if you set that intention, we can make it so, we can choose.

I trained to become an Angelic Reiki® Practitioner in 2010, and I am passionate about using this healing modality to reach people on a deeper level, especially children, and bringing awareness to your soul, and what you can do to allow YOU fully! It was obvious after learning about Angelic Reiki® and the way in which it can assist for your own spiritual and personal growth, that I needed to apply this to my own life in a big way, so that I can show, that no matter what you face in life, your reaction, and your perception of the situation matters. We don’t realise just how powerful and influential we are until we are faced with life changing and potentially damaging situations.

As humans we always question why me?! Because maybe, just maybe, you are meant for this experience and to use it to make something positive out of it, go forth and speak the experience to show we are never alone! You hear the resounding chants of “Me too!” and suddenly you’re not dealing with your stuff alone, because there are others, many others that can relate on some level. We have a choice to defend that situation and cling to it, or we can cut ties with it and use it for the greater good! I know which one I would choose.

My business is called Ignite The Flame, it focuses on Angelic Reiki® Training and bringing in self help methods to balance your four body system.

Ignite The Flame Workshop is still at birthing stages and I am channelling more content each day for it and am starting to tailor make a similar workshop for those 11-16 years old. This is especially good for those who have an interest in spirituality, and would like to shift old patterns and belief systems, but have never practised meditations or energy healing and this gives a good taste into what that is like.

Experiencing this energy can be life changing, and although I am passionate about sharing this energy with you there is no obligation to train in Angelic Reiki®, and that is the beauty of Ignite the flame, it is there to see how energy healing works and where this could fit into your life, and is it something you would utilise if you became a practitioner yourself...

For me I loved that being able to balance by own child’s energy and working with them on a soul level was the best gift tuning into this energy can give, it opens up an awareness to their feelings on a level you never realised was there. I can assist with parents who know their children are sensitive, report to seeing energy or hearing spirit, there are ways you can help your child understand and accept what they are experiencing.

I have written one book ready for publishing and another is just birthing too. The first book focuses on Children and my journey with my son and the realisation children are here to teach us  if we would just allow them too, there are messages contained within this book that parents may be triggered by, and I truly hope so, whatever emotion comes up it is right!

I am no perfect parent, and I realised something about my journey, I didn’t quite understand any of my children, and communication from all angles were being misunderstood, this is simply a lesson for patience, their soul story is unique, and the way in which my parents nurtured me, wasn’t being accepted by my children, and so here’s the thing; the challenge comes when you ask if this is a problem?

Then you start to find other ways to reach them instead however frustrating or uncomfortable that might feel, and in accepting this, you’re also learning from you too without even realising. The way that children no longer learn the same and that actually if you were to adopt a fresh look at children and that maybe, just maybe what they offer goes beyond any diagnosis.

This book is mainly about my personal journey and describes the positives around learning through Autism, it also goes on to describe my relationship with my daughters and our home education journey.

The second book is an account of the way I personally dealt with sexual abuse, and how changing my mindset and looking at ways for facing that wound and healing it, transforming the anger and bringing in forgiveness. That’s not saying what happened was ok, but for you to move forwards with a positive mind set, it is crucial we view our experiences different.

For instance, not allowing it to control your future decisions or clinging so tightly to the experience that it you defend it at every opportunity. Showing that there is room for accepting that it was something that happened, not to me, but for me?

Like I said, use the experience, however soul destroying, don’t let it crush you, because in reality we are much stronger than the experience. You can own how you feel about the experience, but I am here to say it’s so beneficial once you’ve made the choice to release the negative emotions surrounding that trauma, don’t deny those emotions, just allow them but making a conscious decision to change our focus

Would I have had this perception had I not been given the opportunity to discover energy healing? I don’t think I would have been as awake to looking as deeply at life as I do now, that is for sure. The connections I have made since following my pathway has been immensely insightful.


What advice would you give to you 21 year old self?

I think looking back to my earlier life, I would tell my 21 year old self to question everything, and don’t be so quick to make decisions regarding your life and work. Finally, go with your gut instincts, If something feels off, Don’t do it!


Can you give us 3 tips for juggling motherhood, life and business?

So far being the multi tasker of the family has been largely frustrating at times. My advice to myself and everyone else juggling motherhood, life and business is to first, organise!

Second, prioritise and lastly don’t berate yourself if at the end of the day you didn’t achieve it all! Small steps and progress. The process isn’t easy, but if you’re passionate about your work, you’ll make everything work anyway!

Keep it simple in every aspect, less is more and keep those around you that encourage and support your journey.

What is the best thing about being a WAHM?

I love the flexibility of being a work at home mum! My children are my priority and making sure they are thriving in a peaceful and nurturing environment. I still am working on the balance of it all, holding myself accountable when it comes to promises I make to the children, and promises I make to my business. I have found making lists so beneficial, I am also considering delegating some of my admin to a virtual assistant, someone in the know about legalities of being in business. I create the content, and facilitate the workshops and any other stuff I cannot get my head around, I need a soundboard! I personally feel that may help to minimise stress, and free up more time for other areas of my life, that we can so easily neglect.

shelley int.jpg

The best advice anyone ever gave you?

The best advice someone recently gave me was to “Drop the need for perfection and focus on progress!” and “praise yourself for your achievements as you may not get it elsewhere” Also I always try to take my own advice and the best one that has come from me is “Cry the might tears! For they set you free!” This reminds me that when I feel at my most vulnerable I am actually the strongest, I am not keeping that emotion to myself, it’s not stored, it’s being set free, up and out! Behind those tears tell a story, one where we have been challenged, where we’ve been hurt, and it’s ok to express that through tears.  

What are you reading right now?

I am reading a book recently published on amazon kindle by someone I have been working with personally for the past year. Channeled inspiration ~ Motivational messages to inspire and uplift by Lilli Badcock. It’s one of those books you can open on the page and it gives you the most perfect message for the day!

How do you practice regular self care?

I choose regular self care in the form of Himalayan salt baths, watching what I eat and plenty of spring water. I also self heal angelic reiki as part of keeping my own energy clear, so I am ready to assist my clients.

I sometimes treat myself to a healing from another practitioner, just because it’s nice for someone else to do the work, as a gift to me, telling myself, “Take a break! You are so worth it!”

Local walks out and about. Giving myself internet free days! I feel journaling is part of my ongoing self care too. I am happiest when I am writing.

I pay attention to my body most during my moon time, when I am feeling especially yuk! I really recommend having a moontime kit. Focus on what soothes you during that time of the month, favourite things, and actually make time for you where possible, not always easy with little ones I know, sometimes I have to involve them, so have their favourite things on hand to chill out with.  I choose things like Hot chocolate, or a favourite flavour of fruit tea, a hot water bottle, a nice blanket and good book/comedy film that encourages you to take some rest. I feel that rather than dread my time of the month, it is good to have something to look forward to, giving myself little snippets of rest here and there.

Shelley I thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your wisdom, experiences and insights.
