Meet the Mama-in-Chief
I’m a mama and playmate to a wonderful blessing who is 3 years old and who trains me in all things ‘toddler’! I live in Surrey, UK with my amazing husband who is a medical doctor with an interest in sports and exercise medicine and our son. You can follow me at “the_stories_of_a_mama” on instagram to be updated on my life as a mama.
Hope you enjoy the site!
The story of mamabuys
After becoming a mum and doing full time work in the charity sector, I was looking to create a work opportunity for myself that is flexible, fulfilling, challenging and has a social purpose. So I came up with Mamabuys.
At the beginning I had an idea and then some, but I was hesitant not knowing if it would amount to anything and if I could do it.
Then came Nayanee Silva of Smarter Lives who acts as my business coach. Weekly calls with her gave me the confidence, support and direction I needed to launch this site. With every call, I moved closer to my goal with feedback on my ideas, gentle nudges to be on track, practical help with technology that I didn’t know much about and overall support. She being a mum of two boys is always understanding of my need for flexibility with scheduling calls and accomplishing my work which I really appreciate. I also love listening to her stories of her journey as a mum of two accomplished boys and an entrepreneur.
My knowledge of coding is non existent but I discovered tools that make building a website as easy as dragging and dropping elements to suit my need. So I taught myself to build this site and I want to encourage anyone who feels ‘technologically challenged’ like I am, to let go off your fears and embrace the easily customisable, visual website builders that are available.
