Alli Price runs Motivating Mum, a website and events service offering support and advice to mums in business, or those wanting to be. The business was born of necessity – having just given birth and launching a home business at the same time in the UK, Alli found the situation both isolating and lonely. The Businessmums’ Networking Lunch was born of the belief that there must have been more mums out there like her – there were, 45 or so.
The business evolved for four years in the UK, to the model that it is today, and grew to include five franchisees running Motivating Mum events in their local areas. Just as Alli started seeing some return on her investment she upped sticks and left with her family for her home-town of Melbourne (including new baby).
Alli is now in start-up mode again, this time in her beloved Oz, although things are going a lot quicker…the first time round she hadn’t even known what SEO, blogging and social media were! The business remains the same – networking and brainstorm events for mums, phone mentoring with established mums in business, articles and features, an online forum and more. She also currently has four associates around the country running events for mums in their areas (and is looking for more).
Alli is now the happiest she’s ever been – achieving her aims of helping mums in any way she can, however, now it’s achieved while her daughters play in the sunshine and her friends are around the corner.
