Single Mums Business Network
Jules is Director of KIH Products Ltd. Founder of SMBN. Board of Directors ASP Network, Advisory Panel Member Working Families, Editor of Single Mums Business Magazine and Author of Finding Happiness and Freeing Your Spirit
I founded the smbn in 2019, after 20 years of full time work, marriage and homeownership, to needing benefits and being rejected by society due to status.
When I became a single parent in 2012 I embarked on a law degree, set up my own company following the design of the KIH Bed and worked part-time to fit into childcare, but the stigma and adversity was such an eye opener during this six year period that I set up the smbn in 2019 to help raise awareness of barriers to work, finance and homes whilst aiming to dispel some misconceptions, reduce stigma, and help my members hold their heads high and benefit from some support in business PR whilst supporting personal and professional development.
I will be on hand to answer questions about the smbn, how we support members, how our mission positively impacts the economy and how important it is to remove the shame and stigma attached to single parenting. Tips for working in self-employment or setting up a business; information and advise around personal and professional development. The smbn magazine will be on sale *subject to availability.
