With rising childcare costs and many families having to depend on both sets of parents bringing in a wage, flexible working from home is an ideal option. I’ve a huge supporter of the mumprenuer workforce –
(informal) a woman who combines running a business enterprise with looking after her children
It’s a lifestyle choice which I opted for when my eldest child was a baby and one which I returned to some 14 years later once my maternity leave ended with my youngest and it has absolutely been the best decision I could have made.
So if that sounds like something which you’re contemplating, you might be interested in an opportunity to become a mumpreneur with Captain Tortue. French fashion company, Captain Tortue can help ladies looking to start their own business as an Independent Style Consultant. There’s no competitors in direct selling so it’s the perfect chance to start something new and exciting. They give training, support and encouragement to help you reach your own goals. You can work as little or as much as you like which allows you to fit this job around your family, current job and social life.
Many consultants join with no prior experience as the company provides free training and support. The initial investment is low (£100) and it is possible to earn a full or part-time income on your own schedule. Completely revamping your own wardrobe is also one of the big perks. Captain Tortue is a unique French fashion company that sells beautifully designed women’s and girls’ clothes direct to customers in their own home. They have 3 brands sold in the UK and Ireland – Miss Captain, Miss Trend and Little Miss Captain (for children and petite women). We have been established in France since 1993 and UK since 2003.
For me personally, this would be the ideal way to shop, I’m usually pushed for time when shopping so rarely try things only to get home to find they looked much better on the hanger, or I’ve picked up the wrong size. Its much nicer to shop in the company of good friends who can help you decide what suits you and what you can accessories with your existing wardrobe rather than the pressure of standing in front of a changing room mirror, under unflattering lighting, ‘umming’ and ‘arring’ while a queue of customers waiting impatiently outside. (or in my case while my Toddler is getting bored in his buggy)
I’m annoyingly indecisive and if I ever feel rushed into deciding whether to buy something, I usually end up leaving it rather than waste my money.
I was introduced to the concept of capsule clothes shopping once by a lady who delivered some training in my previous job. after complimenting her outfit she explained how she only shopped twice a year, buying several outfits which she could co-ordinate throughout the season. After taking a look through the Captain Tortue summer collection there are certainly some key pieces which would see you through and if you’ve got an eye for style then this really could be the job for you.
So if you’re looking for a job to fit around family commitments and love sharing fashion advice then I’d say this is certainly something to check out.
