    Hello if you are reading this!

    I am a SAHM of 4 who decided I’d prefer to choose my own hours and work for myself than have to return to work in the near future :)

    After getting sick of only being able to send flowers, chocolates and the like to loved ones and with my sister as my financial backer and partner, I am in the process of designing my own website 😮 for an online business selling gifts and hampers of a unique and personalised nature.

    I have dabbled in web design before for a previous employer’s intranet and also obtained a degree in accounting while raising my children (which I’ve never used) so if I can overcome my mummy brain I’m hoping that I’ll be able to attend reading groups for years to come!

    And if anyone has an idea for a hamper that they’d love if they were sent one I would be happy to hear about :)

    Hi nikkyl,

    Welcome to Flying Solo, it’s nice to meet you :)

    I am gobsmacked that you managed to get an accounting degree while looking after small children. That is seriously impressive. I hope your new business goes brilliantly for you.

    As it happens, I received a lovely hamper this week, which my mum bought at a fete. I don’t much like sweet things, so most hampers don’t suit my taste – but this one was great: It’s an Italian basket full of really nice pasta, divine pasta sauces, olives, sun-dried tomatoes and assorted related bits. Best hamper I’ve ever received, I reckon.

    Hope that helps,
    Jayne

    Thanks Jayne,

    I don’t know how I managed either but I will definitely have an All Nighter Hamper dedicated to my years of late night study!

    Thanks for your suggestion – I’ll definitely take that on board :)

    Hi Kylie,

    Welcome to Flying Solo,

    I look forward to learning more about your business.

    Nice work with the degree :), but I am not sure dabbling in graphic design on a intranet is going to be much help with a full eCommerce website!

    See you on the forums,

    Cheers,

    Matt
