About

Hi, I am Jennifer and I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister and business owner. My three children are 15 months (boy), 5 (girl) and 8 (girl). Like other small business mums and business owners alike, my life is a constant juggling act.

I have spent my career working in business and IT, for large Corporate organisations. As much as I mostly enjoyed working in the corporate world, there came a point in my life when I no longer wanted to work for someone else, in an environment where my contribution was constrained. I felt a little compromised, never able to do things entirely my way. I suddenly felt like I didn’t quite belong. It was time for me to start my own business. From a personal perspective, it was also time. With 3 small children, I needed to find a new way for our family to survive and prosper, without missing out on the children growing up.

I had a real moment of clarity one day. I want to work for myself. I want to do things my way, by my standards (which are high). I want to work with people I chose to work with and not those I was forced together with. I have a huge amount of energy, motivation and a million ideas so I have started a new journey as a Small Business Mum. It is hard work but it is fun and rewarding, and I think I have learnt more in the past 12 months than I learnt in 17 years in Corporate life – about people, building a product, marketing, and exploring the online world.

My website www.PersonalisedCandlesandGifts.com.au is doing very well and has achieved great google page ranking in a relatively short space of time – generally page 1 or 2 for all the major search criteria I have targeted. And my products have been very well received by my customers, with many many people writing with positive feedback about their order and the service they have received. I have greatly expanded my range, and added other product lines. And there is more to come. I have a new business idea under construction. Very exciting.

I hope you enjoy my blog. It is a combination of business and family. Because, for me, that is my reality.
