Safe hands with Successful Mum Yvonne Line
I run fun and informative First Aid courses designed for you in South London, Kent and surrounding areas. I share my skills and experiences with parents, grandparents, nurseries, businesses and anyone keen to learn how to save a life and make a difference to those around them.
After attending the Successful Mums Business Start-up course, Jane helped me to realise that I can find a good mix of work and family life and that I don’t need to settle back into a job that took me away from my gorgeous children and husband. I took so many ideas from the session, it gave me the confidence and the boost I needed.
“The course will open your eyes to areas you hadn’t even considered and will give you the confidence to say “Yes I can do this” and you’ll walk out with your invisible crown on and your head held high.“
When our youngest son at 3 weeks old stopped breathing, I found I knew exactly what to do. The whole incident only lasted 10-20 seconds but it felt like forever. From this day, I knew I wanted to help others do the same in this type of situation. Eight years ago I volunteered as a First Aid Trainer for the Army Cadet Force, so when the opportunity came up to leave the police after my maternity leave I took the leap into the world of freelance first aid training and I’ve not looked back since.
There were challenges along the way, I needed to find the confidence to move away from the security of employee benefits, pension, annual leave, sick pay and a team to work alongside.
There is very little back up when working for myself, if I can’t work because one of the boys is sick or school is off, then the work doesn’t get done and I’m constantly chasing to catch up. Thankfully I always make sure there’s a Plan B in place for my first aid courses, so I’ve never cancelled a course yet! I’m loving being in a job where I can pick and choose the hours I work and I can finally be around for weekends, half terms and holidays without having to check a team calendar.
If I was to give advice to any mums thinking of starting a business, it would be to make it your top priority to attend one of Jane’s Successful Mums courses! It will open your eyes to areas you hadn’t even considered and will give you the confidence to say “Yes I can do this” and you’ll walk out with your invisible crown on and your head held high.
