Julie set-up her own award-winning company KIH Products in 2013 after designing the KIH Bed – a Pregnancy Cushion used by Massage Therapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors to enable clients to lay on their bellies at variable stages of pregnancy, in 2011 (when she was heavily pregnant). Julie had also embarked on a Law Degree when she fell pregnant in 2011 and once she graduated in 2016 she published Finding Happiness and Freeing Your Spirit to Amazon to help others help themselves.
Desperate to continue her love of working but also desperate to be a full-time mum started a long and painful journey of fighting for family and financial independence. Whilst she continually attempted to find part-time work that would give her some flexibility to attend assembly, and pay her a decent wage, this proved very difficult. Her journey has taught her more than she ever wanted to know and now she has set up the SMBN to help you on your journey to being able to work, enjoy your family and build a financially independent life.
Julie has used her business, legal, holistic and business development skills to enable her to achieve work /life balance and she regularly networks for her business and as a freelance business development manager for other companies.
Whilst the SMBN is passionate about promoting flexible working (for a professional wage) for all mums and dads, the SMBN is tailored for Single Mums in Business because we understand your challenges.
