Today was my day for tutoring on the Women into Enterprise programme run at the University of Bath in Swindon.  It always gives me plenty of motivation, working with fifteen women all with great ideas and lots of enthusiasm.

Cash flow was the topic of the day, and its funny how finance can send people do-lally?  Why do accountants use so many different words to mean the same thing?  Direct costs, variable costs, cost of sales etc. was making everyone confused and me included……

However, the one thing that stood out for me was when one lady, who has just returned to the group six weeks after having a baby, said that she was feeling down and lacking in confidence. She had been really determined to start up her business but now found that she had no energy to do it as well as everything else she was facing…..why do we want to be superwomen?  Anyway, having been honest with herself and us, it seemed to cheer her up. So get whatever issue is bugging you out in the open today and make yourself feel better.
