Personally, I couldn’t achieve those, especially with an unsupportive husband (now ex-husband). I have no family in the UK (I’m French) so there’s no relative who can step in to help for a bit.

Working in corporate, it just didn’t work, nor made sense as whatever I’d earn would go into childcare which is extortionate! So I stayed home to stay with my son and got really depressed. I’ve worked all my life, and suddenly, my life came to a standstill.

Fast forward and I started my own business which is allowing me the freedom to work around my son’s school hours and build a career I love. It’s still a work in progress, but I’m getting there. To me, it was the only way I could ever make it happen.
