A Mumpreneur Guide by Annabel Karmel

One of the best things I like to read about is inspiring stories of people (especially women) who have achieved amazing success against all odds. This book is full of motivational stories like this, starting obviously with:

Annabel Karmel – Cookbooks for healthy food ideas for babies and children at different stages of growing up.  This is where I first found out about Annabel Karmel.  I was all into cooking healthy nutritious food for my babies.

Myleene Klass – Musician and clothes

Alex Polizzi – Hotelier and Millers Bespoke Bakery

Chrissie Rucker – The White Company

Chloe Macintosh – made.com

Liz Earle – skincare

Thomasina Miller – Wahacca

Jennifer Irvine – The Pure Package, a food delivery company

Jacqueline Gold – Ann Summers

Liz Jackson – Great Guns Markerting

Caroline Castigliano – Bridal Boutique

Thea Green – Nails Inc

Gail Rebuck – Chair of Penguin Random House

Katy Hymans – Mumlin

Lucy Jewson – Frugi childrens wear

Bev James – The Coaching Academy

Baukjen De Swaan Arons – Stylish Maternity wear

Caroline Longton and Justine Roberts – Mumsnet

Lynne Franks – SEED Network

Dessi Bell – Zaggora Fitness Clthes

Shelley Barrett – ModelCo/ Lashwand

Fiona Clark – Inspiredmums.co.uk

Sam Roddick – Coco de Mer

Wendy Shand – Totstotravel.co.uk

There are a few worksheets throughout the book, starting with finding your passion, listing your skills and finding a niche.  It then goes on to making a plan and making it official and then goes into depth about how to grow your business.  There are also very useful links to websites which give you more information and resources to get your idea into a fully fledged international bestseller.

It is a very resourceful and practical book with lots of very useful information and peppered with inspiring quotes such as “Dissatisfaction Breeds Opportunity”.  If you do have an idea that you would like to sell to the world, then this book is ideal for you.  Towards the end there is a lot of in depth technical information which I only skim read as I didn’t need that information.  If however, you don’t have any ideas, just reading the stories is interesting and inspiring and doing some of the earlier worksheets encourages you to write down and highlight all of your skills. It is a bit of a long read, especially for time strapped mums but I would recommend this book to everyone.
