Running your own successful business can be difficult, especially during lockdown, however one mum has shared how she juggles running her business alongside raising her young daughter.
Jess Robinson, 23, owns Wax Melts by Jess, a business where she creates and sells homemade wax melts in different shapes, sizes and scents.
However, as well as being a business owner, she also has the job of being a mum and juggling her time can be difficult, as she has to work around her daughter’s schedule.
“I make them at night when she’s gone to bed and sometimes when my partner comes home from work he will watch her so it just means I have to plan everything out,” she said.
“I have to give myself enough time to make them with only having a few hours in the evening.”
Like a lot of small business owners, Jess touched on how her business has helped her during lockdown.
“It has definitely helped keep me sane, it definitely helps having a hobby that pays and I absolutely love what I do,” she said.
She also encouraged other mums who are looking to start their own businesses.
“I would say do it! It’s hard to find time and motivation sometimes but it’s so rewarding, much like motherhood!” she said.
“Planning and doing something you’re passionate about is key, you will find the time and eventually everything will fall into place,” she advised.
