Successful Mums celebrates a stellar year

Successful Mums celebrates a stellar year

Forget one star on top of the Christmas tree, here at Successful Mums we’re decking ours with five – to celebrate the 100 five-star reviews lighting up our Facebook page.

Everyone likes getting full marks and we’re delighted to have reached such an important milestone. But even better is the chance to hear how our work is helping mums regain their mojo by inspiring them to get back into employment, change careers or launch their own brilliant businesses.

This year we’ve welcomed 1,000 women onto the free courses, coaching and workshops that are at the heart of Successful Mums. These sessions have been created by our founder Jane Knight, a highly respected business and careers advisor, and draw on her wealth of knowledge and experience in the training and skills sectors.

Jane’s courses offer women the know-how and support they need to find rewarding jobs with the right work-life balance or to start a business they love. They are packed with practical advice and steps to help mums break down the obstacles in their way: from CV writing and interview skills, to confidence-boosting tips and the inside scoop on where to find flexible work and refresher courses.

That so many of our Successful Mums walk away feeling energised, empowered and ready to focus on their goals is a source of immense pride to us. And it’s great to feel the buzz as like-minded women come together to bounce ideas around, share their visions and inspire one another.

But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what some of our online reviewers have to say:


The workshop was fantastic. It was informative and delivered in a very focused but relevant way. Planning to return to work after a career break is daunting and sometimes overwhelming. This course breaks down the issues and equips you to take the first steps. - Nyala, Find A Job You Love Taster Session, September 2017

Being a successful mother herself, [Jane] understands the challenges faced by parents setting up their own businesses around family commitments and provides some really helpful tips about developing a business idea! I came away feeling energised with some clear actions to help me focus, stop procrastinating and break down the barriers to just getting on with it! - Alison, Business Start-Up Taster Session, Nov 2017

Jane and her positive inspiration came into my life when I needed to rediscover my strength, confidence and, most of all, myself. I cannot thank her and our group enough for the support and motivation that I gained from them all. - Mandy, Business Start-Up Course, 2013

This course delivered beyond my expectations. It really helped me to rebuild my confidence … I learnt a lot about myself and to recognise and appreciate all the transferable skills I have acquired over the years as a mum. Thanks to this course, I am now employed in a job I love . - Julie, Back To Work Course, May 2017
