Mumpreneur profile: Leyla of Motherhood Diaries

What’s your favourite thing about running your own business? Being able to sing to my own tune and pick my own hours (which is barely a few hours in the day at the moment!) But, most importantly, I love how I can create such a personal relationship with my readers and my clients and not have to answer to someone higher up than me. I have always had a problem with working to someone else’s goals (and pocket!), but most of all, I have found it difficult to see how cutthroat and corporate some businesses behave. I vowed, when I started my business, I would always keep to my original plan and never sway from that, which is to offer great quality factual and real opinionated content for free to parents from around the globe on the topics of preconception, pregnancy, labour/birth and parenting. And, as it’s my business, I am free to keep to that mantra without someone telling me something different.

What you wish you knew before you started online

“I now understand Richard Branson’s mantra that outsourcing is key to your business. I never realised early on how important it was to outsource little projects to people better skilled and qualified to perform that part of your business. I spent a lot of time trying to design my own website from scratch, using WordPress, a platform I’d never used before. I took two years turning my site into a basic running machine. A few months with qualified website designers and they managed to turn my basic site into a magazine! You can’t know/do everything, so utilise freelancers/acquaintances with skills to do the work for you. You save money in the long run and, most importantly, you manage time more efficiently.” Leyla Preston / Motherhood Diaries
