This week we are chatting with Nadine Welter, the mum of 2 behind the most popular community site for families in Muswell Hill, Muswell Hill Mums.

What inspired you to start Muswell Hill Mums?
After having my first baby, I realised life suddenly was very different to how it was before. Muswell Hill Mums was created with the aim of sharing what is going on in Muswell Hill for kids and parents and to bring our fantastic community together.

What is the most challenging aspect of running your own business?
One word: time! There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to juggle it all.

What do you love most about running your own business?
Flexible working hours and being my own boss.

What has made the biggest difference to your business?
It’s the little things that make a big difference: Thank you’s from my members, the relationships I’ve been making with amazing fellow mumpreneurs and our supportive community.

What’s your secret to balancing a growing business while raising a family?Getting the work-life-balane right is always challenging. I plan out which tasks need to be done in order of priority and try not to do anything that would need my full attention while the kids are around. I couldn’t live without my phone, it’s invaluable. One day per week is family day where business and business talk is not allowed.

If you were to blend the perfect business success, what would be the three ingredients?
Motivation, personal excitement and good time management.

What tips do you have for other mums who want to start a business?
1. Get feedback about your business idea from as many people as you can, not just friends & family. Speak to others about their experiences in setting up a business.

2. Believe in your concept

3. Just do it!
