SheEO

What is a SheEO you ask?

I recently discovered a new term for female CEOs – SheEO. It’s possible I’ve been living under a rock because a quick internet search yields several results for SheEO. Some involve businesses doing admirable work to address the under-representation of women in business or start-ups so I’m apprehensive to critique the word. From a marketing…

SCHOOL MUM CLIQUES

WE’RE GOING TO BE FRIENDS

Incredibly strange things happen when your first child starts school. One minute you’re hanging their socks on the line, the next you’re on the phone to your husband deliberating another baby.
