Hi, I’m Carrie, Co-Founder of Mums & Co

Mums & Co launched when I had a toddler to my name and was seven months pregnant with my second son. So I know a thing or two about the juggle.
To some it may seem crazy to take on such a massive challenge when my life was about to be turned upside down. To others―I’m talking about mums like us―it makes perfect sense.

Because when that idea that lights you up comes along - it’s impossible to let it go.

So how do you get other people on board and truly understand your idea? 
That is all in the art of the pitch and that pitch can take place anywhere and at any time - at the school gate, a friends bbq or on a pitch competition stage.

Pitching is challenging for anyone, but can be especially challenging for women. Why? Because whilst pitching is not technically hard, it’s emotionally hard.
A confidence gap exists for women, who tend to undervalue themselves. In a pitch environment this leads to underselling themselves and coming off to listeners as ‘less sure of themselves’.

I frequently hear women express that they don’t feel they deserve their job and are “imposters” who could be found out at any moment. 

At Mums & Co we think this can be improved for women like you. So we’ve created the Confident Pitching For Business Women mini-course - to help give all women a safe space to connect, grow and learn together.

I hope to see you there!
