Competition question:  Send us an email to info@mumpages.com telling us a challenge you have faced within your business either during or when you first started and how you overcome this challenge.


Hello! Firstly I’d just like to say, thank you for this opportunity

Even if I don’t win, writing this made me realise how truly lucky I am to be a woman, to have a beautiful family, to be in business & to juggle it all no matter how hard it may seem sometimes. It’s a blessing.

“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” Henry Ford.

Here is my entry:

A challenge I have faced in business? You ask

I chuckle at these words I read!

Each day brings with it new challenges,

But my determination they feed.


It’s a balancing act, in the circus of life

I feel like I might be a clown,

So I take time out, just to breathe,

This picks me up when I’m down


We need these challenges

To help us grow,

Both in business & in life

This I know


The list of challenges is long,

Just like the to-do list.

So I tell myself,

Don’t get your knickers in a twist!


I look at the vision board I made

That is hanging on the wall,

I see the pictures, I read the words

and I stand tall


For if I don’t build my dreams,

Someone will hire me to help build theirs.

This keeps me going,

Up that huge flight of stairs.


When I kiss my children good night

At the end of another long day,

I reflect on those challenges I faced,

and I know I wouldn’t have it any other way


Warmest regards,
