Roxanne Ford

Today I’m talking with the beautiful Roxanne Ford. She’s a writer, entrepreneur and charity advocate who runs a thriving online support website called Baby Mamas which inspires, informs and provides a wonderful support network for young mums.

Rox is leading by example and showing women and young mums everywhere what’s possible. We’re talking about going with the flow and letting your business evolve, how to get back on the path when it’s feeling hard, why done is better than perfect and how none of us really know what we’re doing when we start a blog or business. We’re also talking about how she deals with “mummy guilt” and has built a thriving online empire based on kindness and generosity.

We’re going to talk truths, we’re going to have some laughs and I hope you enjoy this episode.
