Juggling parenting and being their own boss. Meet Becky from The Art of Health Living
Hi, I’m Becky. I’m a full time blogger and copywriter as well as being a mum of two. Life is hectic but I feel so lucky to be doing work I love as well as having the flexibility to fit it around my family. I love running, baking, moaning, drinking prosecco and eating – ALWAYS eating!
Tell us about your business baby
The Art of Healthy Living is a healthy lifestyle website that started off as a bit of a hobby and has grown into something much, much more. It takes on the format of a magazine style site with articles posted both from myself and contributors covering all things fitness, health, food and wellness. I like to approach health and fitness from a balanced and realistic viewpoint – it’s all about everything in moderation.
What’s your why?
I love writing and wanted to get my voice out there. The response I’ve had from people has been amazing and knowing that I have helped someone feel better about themselves and made them feel as though they are not alone is amazing.
What do you find the hardest bit about doing the juggle?
Switching off at the end of the day. I’m currently living in a rental house as we’re doing a big house renovation and I don’t have a separate office. It means I have to be quite strict with myself when it’s time to down tools. However it only takes a child being off ill and it throws my work schedule completely off.
Who’s in your support network?
I have built up a fab network of local and not so local female business owners who inspire and support me every step of the way. We work alongside each other, refer each other and I know that if I ever need them they’ll be there.
If only you knew then what you know now…
It is OK to say no!
