The Unsung Heroes Of Small Business!!!

Ok, so if you are based in Australia and you're reading this post the day it goes out, many (most?) of you are just starting the day after celebrating Mother's Day yesterday.

It may have been taking your Mum out for a picnic or a nice meal - or it may have been as simple as a bunch of flowers and a quick phone call (as was the case with me as my Mum lives hundreds of kilometers away from us) to say hi and show her your appreciation and love.

While I'm here I want to give a huge shout out to the "Unsung Hero Mums" that don't get anywhere near as much acknowledgement as they deserve - and that's the Small Business Mums!!!

I tend to categorize these Mums into three groups -

1. Those Mums who run their own small business.

2. Those Mums who are the partners of small business owners.

3. Those Mums who are the partners of small business owners AND run their own small business.

The reason why these Mums need to be acknowledged is that in many (most?) cases these Mums are also co-ordinating the day to day running of homes/children/their own parents - and all the other chaos in our lives and I - for one - often stand their amazed at how they can do it (and I can speak from experience because my wife is a "Category 3 Mum" above!!! LOL).

To all you Small Business Mums out there, I say "Good On Ya" - I don't know how you do what you do and it will never cease to amaze me how you get through the days without ripping your hair out!!! LOL
