Hi, I’m Susan Payton, Founder of The Business of Mums, and I understand what it’s like running your own business. I’ve learnt the hard way. I’ve made expensive mistakes, hired the wrong people and wasted TONS of time and money on tools and resources I didn’t need and never used!
I also know that starting a business is expensive and that you are probably working to a tight budget … and that knowing who to ask, where to turn and which tools and services are right for you can be a minefield.
And if, like me, you can often feel confused and overwhelmed by all the people out there offering advice, free guides, e-books and e-courses, programs, 30 day challenges, videos, podcasts, webinars, not to mention coaching programs, seminars, workshops and retreats … then you are going to love this!
We are constantly looking at the best ways that we can support you and your business and take as much of the hassle out of finding the help, support and resources you need as possible.
So, we’ve done the groundwork for you. We’ve done the research because we know the areas of businesses that you are likely to need help with, like social media, PR, marketing, your website, time management, focusing on the income-generating activities, making a profit and of course the legal stuff. And, even more exciting, we have been able to negotiate some absolutely AWESOME discounts for our members on fantastic training and resources that will really help you GROW your business and make it more VISIBLE.
We have bundled this all together and called it :
The Business of Mums Rewards Membership
For a very LOW-COST monthly membership you can have full access to some very exciting, exclusive discounts & offers that will save you ££££££££’s (saving you MUCH MUCH more than the Rewards Membership will cost you!).
It also means you don’t have to troll through the internet to find the help and services you need or risk signing up for something that doesn’t deliver the value it promises on the sales page! So you’ll have peace of mind that we are connecting you with people that are authentic, knowledgeable, care about their clients and deliver great value.
And we are constantly adding to this already awesome list of great offers – most of which are completely exclusive to The Business of Mums membership and you won’t find anywhere else.
So what do you get:
For just £10 a month (that’s 2 coffees & cakes from Costa!!) or £89 for a year (so 3 month’s membership FREE!) you can have full access to ALL of the awesome deals we have negotiated for you, to help and support you with essential areas of business.

We may vary these Terms (other than the price payable by you for the Membership) as we see fit from time to time and if we do, we shall notify you by email of the change of terms. Your continuation with the Membership will be deemed to be your acceptance of any new Terms.
