Mum's view

Name: Kathy

Location: Exeter

Family: 2 grown up children and 3 grandchildren

How often do you work?
I organise my own timetable so I have been able to work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday meaning I can still have the occasional weekends away. I don't work much in the school holidays although I work a few weeks here and there as I like to take my holidays during term time. I still make sure I have 13 weeks off a year.

How does the job fit around your family life?
Its amazing being able to earn as much as I do working 3 days a week, it means I get to spend lots of time with my grandchildren.

How much time do you commit?
I work between 9 and 2 three days a week and then complete 20 mins admin on the computer each evening although if I'm busy out and about I usually manage to reply to people on my phone.

Where do you carry out your work?
I work in three different locations around Exeter on three different days of the week.

Do you need a car?
Yes! You get so much amazing equipment when you buy Adventure Babies you will need a car to transport what you need each week to the sessions. I was worried that my car wouldn't be big enough but with the back seats down its great.

Do you get support/training?
The training I received at the beginning was brilliant. I worked with Emma for 2 full days at my house to get me started. We then worked together for another 2 days just before my classes were due to start. We have been e mailing and speaking ever since and Emma has been so helpful. Because its her own business you know she wants you to do really well.

Would you recommend this opportunity to other mums?
I cannot tell you how happy I am now that I run Adventure Babies. I was nervous to begin with leaving a salaried position but the sense of satisfaction I get when I see both adults and babies enjoying my sessions is amazing. I love organising my own timetable and choosing holidays. I get a much better work life balance working less than ever before for the same money!

Do you advertise?
I am not amazing on the computer so I have followed the advertising suggestions in the manual and found that these have been brilliant at filling my classes.

Are there any downsides to the role?
I found the setting up and packing away quite daunting to begin with but I am in my 50s! I didn't know where to start! Once I became familiar with the equipment and got into a routine I can set up and pack away in half the time and I feel that I am so much fitter because of it which is an amazing added bonus!
