Self description

Female , 49

I am a wife, and mother of 2 children (boys) aged 9 and 3.
I have worked in film and television both in the UK and New York over a period of 15 years.
I also did a degree in Ancient History and Archaeology at UCL between the births of my two children.
I presently work in news but am starting a new website business. I have always been very creative and driven, but am very much looking forward to being my own boss

Life experiences

Childbirth and being a mother

I have had 2 boys so understand the pressures of being pregnant and giving birth and raising boys up to the age of 9. I have been quite successful at this so far in terms of overcoming eczema issues, spotting their talents and weaknesses and getting a good education for them.
I am also very experienced dealing with difficult family situations and post natal situations surrounding the birth of children.

Obtaining a degree

I think I have been quite successful in obtaining a 2:1 degree whilst also being a mother, being pregnant and also juggling a job in news which meant working a 50 hour week.

The very beginning of starting a business

I am at the very beginning of starting a business and so know the various locations of where to look for grants, funding, business advice, business planning etc.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
