Women’s Month Mompreneur #27 – Yvette Hess – Artist, Writer, Blogger and Mental Health Advocate

In light of August being Women’s Month, I thought it would be the perfect time to promote some hard working mums. You could find the service provider you were looking for or be inspired to take that leap you’ve been dreaming of. Q&A WITH YVETTE 1. Tell me a little about yourself without including details of your family and work (it’s tough I know 😂) … Continue reading Women’s Month Mompreneur #27 – Yvette Hess – Artist, Writer, Blogger and Mental Health Advocate

Product review : Muppie Lounge

A week ago I received the cutest package of Muppie Lounge goodies for me to review. I had been following Marishka’s (creative whizz, artist, planner, website designer, owner and and model behind Muppie Lounge) story and was really keen to check out her range. She is a mum to four little kids and has somehow also managed to start her own fashion label. (How the hell?!) She … Continue reading Product review : Muppie Lounge

Mompreneur #6 : Cheryl Barnett

The morning that I met Cheryl was rough. I had been up since 5am with my little one who had woken twice that night for feeds she didn’t need and I was exhausted. Ten minutes after chatting to Cheryl, I felt awake, invigorated and excited about life. She is the human version of a glass of champagne; pretty, bubbly and she just makes you feel … Continue reading Mompreneur #6 : Cheryl Barnett

Mompreneur #5 : Victoria (Tory) Sutherland-Dadds

It is always so impressive to me when people know from a young age what they want to do with their life. Most take years and a few career changes before finding something they love. Some people never do. Tory is one of the lucky few who found her talent early on and has turned it into a successful career.  Growing up she was always … Continue reading Mompreneur #5 : Victoria (Tory) Sutherland-Dadds

Mompreneur #4 : Issa Blanco

Issa is so well travelled and educated that I was actually quite intimidated by interviewing her. She has a degree in Journalism and two Masters degrees in Marketing and Public Relations respectively. Even with those accomplishments she is so down to earth and easy to talk to which makes sense since she is also a qualified counsellor and Reiki master. (See what I mean?? She’s … Continue reading Mompreneur #4 : Issa Blanco

Mompreneur #3 : Debbie Lee Cheetham

I was quite intrigued when I received Debbies e-mail. She runs two very different businesses from home. The first is her own Graphic Design business. Debbie was a Design Head and Brand Custodian before she had her first child. She managed the account for one of the biggest retailers in SA and like many mums (myself included) she expected to step right back into her job once her … Continue reading Mompreneur #3 : Debbie Lee Cheetham

Mompreneur : Jade van Niekerk

I met Jade (owner and entrepreneurial mind behind Jadels) for breakfast and a chat. I estimated about an hour for our ‘interview’ but we ended up chatting for almost two and a half hours and I would have gladly stayed longer had my beautician not been waiting to fix my wolverine eyebrows.  She is the first in my Mompreneur series and the reason I wanted to … Continue reading Mompreneur : Jade van Niekerk
