How does the job fit around your family life?
Perfectly! I can fit it around my day job and children without any trouble. Keeping in touch with customers and team members is easily done using a smartphone. I can decide how much time I want to spend each week and if something comes up, as it inevitably does with children, it’s not a problem to change my plans.

How much time do you commit?
It varies each week depending on the family schedule. I love it so much I tend to work a little each day.

Where do you carry out your work?
From the spare bedroom, aka my office! I have a desk set up, so I have somewhere to keep all my Usborne papers and notes. I regularly attend local events and work with local schools and nurseries.

Do you need a car?
I have a car as I like to do local events but it’s not essential as you don’t have to keep vast quantities of stock.

Do you get support/training?
Yes, lots of support and coaching from the wider team with regular face to face meetings and online training events. I have a monthly catch up with my mentor to help me develop my business further.

Would you recommend this opportunity to other mums?
It’s so much fun and you get to meet a lot of amazing people. Since joining Usborne, I have made so many new and lasting friendships. My children have also made new friends and now have quite an extensive, and growing, library.

Do you advertise?
Yes, mainly on Facebook but occasionally at local events.

Are there any downsides to the role?
None for me.
