For those of us that are women and mothers, we can often be found organising our child’s sports bag, writing a grocery list, tidying up a mistake made by a team member at work and supporting our partner, all within the same five minutes.

At the time, I was struggling to maintain my home and garden. The number of jobs that needed doing daily, weekly and monthly was making me stressed, grumpy and unwell. My work, relationships and mental health were suffering.

I now have a house manager/personal assistant, cleaner and gardener. In total, this costs me over $1,400 per month. In addition to this, I have a wonderful team that helps me run my business.
