Today I caught up with a super busy and buzzing Estelle and Leona - founders of the Mums in Business Association (MIBA). Their book Mumpreneur on Fire 2 was released TODAY and so I snapped it up and can't wait to tell you what I think, but first lets start from the beginning!
Mums in Business Association is the brain child of sisters and co founders Estelle Keeber and Leona Burton. Both being mums who have successful businesses themselves they truly understood the struggles that come with being a mum in business.
Mums in Business Association was created in June 2017 and in just 9 months has grown to over 20k followers on social media.
So what is Mums in Business Association and what makes it so special that 20k women want to be a part of it?
MIBA as it has become affectionately know is a place where mums and women in business can come to share ideas, be supported and find ways to grow their business. The group offers live training sessions on a weekly basis as well as VIP access to more exclusive in depth trainings. The MIBA networking events have been a huge success and are now being ran all over the world in places such as London, Australia and America. Being child friendly networking events means that mums do not have to sacrifice time away from their children in order to succeed and grown their businesses.
After the massive success of their first book Mumpreneur on Fire, which went to Amazons #1 best sellers, the ladies decided that it was important to share out more inspirational stories to women all over the world that felt like they were facing the struggles alone. Mumpreneur on Fire 2 is a collection of 20 inspirational stories from women who have suffered domestic violence, bullying and abuse yet still have succeeded against all the odds to build successful businesses.
So now we are up to speed, do tell us ladies
