Episode 86: The Power Of You - How One Woman's Quest To Reconnect With Herself Led To Huge Business Success
She went from stay-at-home mum of 25 years to successful business owner in just 5 years!
It’s easy to lose yourself in motherhood and fall into the unhelpful narrative that being a mother disadvantages you in your career and in business. But today’s guest is here to prove the motherhood advantage – that the skills we pick up in motherhood allow us to become exceptional business leaders.
Today I’m joined by Maxine Laceby the Founder and CEO of Absolute Collagen.
Maxine went from stay-at-home mother of twenty-five years, to boiling up bones at her kitchen table for the collagen benefits, to a leading beauty entrepreneur. She has taken the market by storm, building a credible and ever-growing beauty business, turning over £1M in just one short year, and over £20M just a few years later.
Maxine runs the business with the help of her two daughters and they now enjoy the massive success that they built from their family kitchen table.
I’m delighted that Maxine joins us today to share all about why she thinks the skills we pick up in motherhood make us brilliant in business.
