Cupcakes for Health and Well-being
World Mental Health Awareness Day is on the 10th October, for a full week in the United States and in Canada for all of October so this seemed like a good time to write this blog.
I want to start by saying that this subject is one that resonates with me personally. I have mentioned in previous blogs that I am sensitive by nature. I want to share with you my experience and to let you know that despite your anxieties and mental health issues that you can be successful (and I don’t necessarily mean in business but in life). I have had spells when I have not known which way to turn and where the path forward is. I want to show you that you can manage your mental health and run a successful global business.Read More
Teaching – I didn’t expect that!!!
How did that happen I often ask myself? If you put me in a class of my peers I do not think I would be your natural choice for a career as a teacher. I studied Childhood and Social Welfare with the idea of going into social work or counselling. Then real life happened. I met my husband and moved away from Norfolk (UK) and my career was put on hold. I initially found work in a bank, the local council and then the civil service. I then had my two beautiful children and needed to seek an alternative path whilst they were young that didn’t include the disproportionate cost of childcare. Baking cupcakes – less demanding I thought!!! Anyone who runs their own business will know I was in for a big surprise. I started making and selling cupcakes. As you will have read from my previous blogs I am completely self-taught.Read More

My story – A self employed mum
If you read my last blog post you’ll have been introduced to the creator of Kerry’s Bouqcakes. Since writing this, I had a lightbulb moment, that little flutter of inspiration; it got me thinking, how many women are out there trying to juggle work life alongside being a mother?
I totally get it, it is NOT easy and I wanted to share with you my experiences of juggling so you know you’re not alone.Read More
