The Founding Mums' Exchange: Brisbane!

Hands up if you feel your organization and accounting went downhill when you became a mother? This month's guest speaker (mother, wife, small business owner, super nice lady) really does live the Founding Mums motto "Helping Mums Get Down To Business". I asked her to speak because she has set me on the right path, "creating order from chaos using online accounting tools.". 4+ years of chaos! It's a big job now... because it's been left so long!

When you are asked searching questions on everyday expenses, if you scratch the surface, do you really know the cost to you? You don't have to be good with numbers to be a Mumtrepreneur. You just have to be organized. This will save you time and money. Enter Amanda Hoffman, owner of My Office Books, and online accounting programmes, which are not only easy, but flexible, mobile, and cost effective.

Amanda will be discussing strategies that can be applied in business, AND  used when taking control of the household budget.

Amanda will discuss:

How friendly online accounting really is, and why the advantages outweigh any negatives.
How using an online tool is convenient enough to assist in creating a budget and keeping to one.

This month's exchange  fees goes to supporting: Mummy's Wish

This month's featured Founding Mum: Alana Huxtable, owner of Ties Of Silk,  a premium online boutique specializing in gifts of style and sophistication.

All ties are made from the highest quality woven silk and are presented in elegant matching boxsets with silk-faced cufflinks.

All customer orders receive the 'Ties Of Silk Touch', being carefully wrapped in a stylish branded tissue paper and delivered in an upmarket gift box.

Ties of Silk are 100% Australian owned and operated and remain true to their values that premium quality and an exemplary customer experience are at the core of what life is about.

You'll like Alana, and if you haven't already, you can follow Ties of Silk on Facebook here.

Please feel welcome to call me any time should you have more questions. Once again thank you Denna for offering this fantastic opportunity.

      Hi Monika, you'll find most RSVP closer to the time. It's the nature of mums, and young kids :)
