Here at PeoplePerHour, we are all about celebrating the fantastic freelancers, business owners and entrepreneurs that make up our platform! What better people to focus on this particular Mother’s Day, than the freelancing mum’s of PPH?
We have a wide variety of women that work through PeoplePerHour. Some of these women are not only building themselves a business empire, they are also trying to raise a family too! We recognise this isn’t an easy balance to achieve…
So, with this in mind we are going to dedicate this particular blog to the mum’s out there. The ladies who are not only succeeding in the business world, but are also raising their beautiful families too! Here is a roundup of only a small selection of some of our freelancing mothers this Mother’s Day!
If you have read anything about last years PeoplePerHour Freelancer Awards then you may recognise the winner of the Digital Brain of The Year Award. Sam is not only winning awards here on PeoplePerHour but she is also the mother to two daughters. If you have the chance to check out the Awards Ceremony Recap video then you can hear Sam herself thank PeoplePerHour for giving her the chance to spend more time with her girls whilst she ran her own business.
Another mum making her way in the business world is Joanna. Joanna got into freelancing during her maternity leave 6 years ago and has never looked back since. Whilst she found herself writing for pennies at the very start of her journey, her reputation grew and grew, leading her to be a popular choice for many people visiting the website. So much so that during 2014, Joanna and her husband decided to up sticks and travel around the world. They have never looked back and Joanna knows that she is lucky to be able to experience such amazing things with her family, whilst still being able to work.
Social media consultant Joanne knows just how hard it is to juggle freelancing with being a full time mum. Joanna is dedicated to not only growing her business as a very busy social media consultant but also being a mum too. Rather than seeing this as impossible, Joanne embraces the challenges that come with juggling clients and all the tasks that come with looking after children. Not only this but she also strives to develop herself, her knowledge and her skill set too!
After growing up in a working class family of five, with a mother who was the main breadwinner due to her father being unable to work, Andrea learnt that sometimes the power of the woman is the best power of all. A mum to 2 children, Andrea wanted to make sure that she could care for and support her children, just like her mum had during her childhood. With a talent for graphic design, Andrea utilised the different clients, projects and jobs on PeoplePerHour to grow her business and expand the services that she can offer.
Katie began her freelancing journey after she found herself unable to find a nursery for her daughter during 2012. Realising that this approach just wasn’t for her, she decided to find a way to still satisfy her ambitious nature, whilst spending as much time as possible with her daughter. With a background in marketing, it made sense that she could take this experience and use it to win projects on PeoplePerHour. All whilst balancing night feeds, school runs and mum duties aplenty!
PeoplePerHour is dedicated to helping both women and men to work for themselves. Working for yourself means that you can set your own working patterns and you can work around the most important thing in your life, your family. It doesn’t matter if you are a hard working mum or a dedicated dad, you can achieve that ever elusive work/life balance with a little help from us. What could be better than that?
So please join us in wishing all the mother’s on PeoplePerHour a very happy Mother’s Day! Please add your wishes for all our mothers in the comments box below.
