ISB: Finally, what was the best piece of advice you have received you could pass on to others with an idea they’d like to turn into a business?
SM: There’s a saying that “you are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with” – make sure you spend time with people who believe in you and support what you are doing as that will mean you’re far more likely to succeed.
Alison Valenti and Sophie Musumeci are two Sydney-based women who are breaking down barriers for women in small business. They witnessed a movement building. A movement where women were searching for different careers or starting their very own small business. These women are focused on wanting to be available for their families without sacrificing their professional dreams. Starting your own business and being a mum involves strength and courage and requires a support network both personally and professionally.
Real Entrepreneur Mums is a community where women have the support, inspiration and encouragement to make the dreams a reality. Sophie and Alison formed this business for women who want to grow their business through referrals, increase their profile and help others in the same boat.
