The lovely Dawn from Baby Goods Store is on the blog this morning, with a FAB giveaway for you (see end of post)
Who are you?
I’m Dawn & I’m married with two children both boys aged 4 and 8.
What do you do?
I am a civil servant that is being made redundant in October 2011. I knew this was going to happen so in December last year i finally decided to pursue starting a baby online store. I first thought about starting the business when i was on maternity leave in 2007 but did not pursue it.
When did you establish your business?
I established my business this May
What do you love about working for yourself?
Its very early days but i am enjoying working on my website, sourcing products and the networking. Running a business from a home has allowed me to work the hours that suit, such as around school hours and my part time job as a civil servant.
Is there anything you do not like about working for yourself?
So far I’ve not experienced a downside to working for myself
Is there anything you would go back and do differently if you could?
If i could go back i would have researched search engine optimisation more as i am now having to learn and get a better understanding of getting traffic to your website etc.
What advice would you give to a Mum considering starting her own business?
