Hi Aimee, welcome! Newbie here too, so interested to hear any tips and tricks on your thread. This website is fab!

If you haven’t already, I would consider joining the SW VA Collaborative that Joanne Manville runs.
My top tip would be to set boundaries if you are juggling work and childcare so you can focus fully on whichever you are doing.
Good Luck, Jules
I agree with Jules.
I have a soon to be three year old, started my business a year and a half ago. It has been a slow process as I enjoyed the set up and working one day a week but now things are flying. The boundaries are vital for a stress free more focussed way of working, but to also have my family time which is one of the reasons I began this journey.
Tips are to network people like people! Good luck you will do amazing!
Thank you for your comments. I hope your weather has improved
Thank you for your advice. I will definitely look into joining the SW VA Collaborative, and boundaries sound like a very good idea
Thank you, I am looking to join some networks as well as setting boundaries and specific times whn my husband has our toddler and i can focus on work.
It will suddenly all come together good luck. Shout if you need anything.
