Summary

Chosen by the Independent as one of the 10 best business books written by women.

In Mumboss, Vicki Psarias, founder of HonestMum.com, shares her #mumboss manifesto for surviving and thriving at work and at home. Vicki writes about everything from juggling work and family, to regaining your confidence after having a baby and battling imposter syndrome. 

An award-winning blogger and vlogger, in this book Vicki shares how to turn your passions into a business that suits the modern mum's lifestyle - all you need is a table and a laptop. Mumboss is full of practical advice, tips and tricks to help fellow #mumbosses navigate both the real and digital worlds. 

Vicki's funny, fresh approach to life and work as a mum has brought her a loyal fan base and a brilliantly successful business: her blog Honest Mum is one of the UK's most popular parenting and lifestyle sites, and the blog combined with Vicki's social channels has an average monthly reach of 1 million. 

A Lean In for the blogging and vlogging generation, Mumboss is an essential book for all parents, whether they are returning to work or looking to start a new career, as well as anyone looking to build their brand or business online.

This book might just change your life

Absolutely brilliant read. Vicki is inspiring and provides every little bit of advice you might need when heading into the world of blogging, writing, small business or another entrepreneurial/ creative career. I found her so motivational that I took the first steps towards a new career that very same day and the response has been amazing. I can't believe I put it off for so long. She really is an inspirational woman and this book is not to be missed if you need a giant kick up the bum to get yourself motivated and informed!

A must read for all Mums who want to start a business online

I was hooked on this book from the very start. I have been following Vicky’s blog & vlogs for a while now and I am always drawn in by her honest and open nature. The book gives practical advice on starting a business online & how to boss being a working Mum but is also really inspiring and motivating.

It came just at the right time for me as I was questioning everything I was doing and my ability as a Mum. It has spurred me on and given me a huge confidence boost.

I would highly recommend this book to any Mums or Mums to be who are thinking about starting an online business.
