I am so lucky, I love my job, I am my own boss, I have a great lifestyle - in short, I have what many people only dream of! The good news is, you can have it too!
I have 2 children Emma, 27 and Oliver, 24 and my first grandchild was born in March 2017! I am from an administrative background and enjoyed being a stay at home mum when my children came along. I started working from home when Ollie started school as I felt the time was right to try something new and I really didn't want to return to the 9-5 life.
I have now been working with Usborne Books at Home for over 18 years. I have built a fantastic full time business and I have lots of fun and have made some great friends along the way.
In 2010 I was awarded the Stephen Cartwright Excellence award for Leadership. It was a great honour to accept this award, for which I was nominated by own team members and chosen as the winner by Usborne Head Office. I am often asked to speak at Usborne conferences to share my advice and experiences with new and experienced Usborne Organsiers and leaders.
My husband took early retirement in 2010 so now my Usborne business is now our only income, something of which I am very proud! The flexibility of my business means we get to spend lots of time together, can take regular trips in our campervan and also spend lots of time with Evie, our grand-daughter, which is an absolute delight!
Between 2011 and 2017 I was able to study part time for a degree with the Open University, something that had been on my ‘to do list’ for many years! The flexibility of my Usborne business allowed me to plan study time whilst still enabling me to keep up with events and team members! I graduated in April 2018 with a BSc (Hons) in Health Science and achieved a 2:1 grade!
I have been all over the world courtesey of Usborne including: Caribbean, Mediterranean and Mexican Cruises and trips to South Africa, Hong Kong, Iceland and most recently Beijing. I have been wined and dined on the Orient Express, at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons and even Claridges.
