We’ve got some brilliant women in The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan team who are fantastic business owners. Lisa Maidment, Consultant and winner of the DSA’s Mumpreneur Award, really is an inspiration to all women.
As mum of two (Chloe aged 2, and Lewis aged 5), Lisa is proud that she has built a successful business and has time to spend time with her kids too!
Lisa said: “I am proud to say that I only have two days childcare a week for Chloe, and two days after school for Lewis. And I manage to run a very successful client business and support a team of over 50 Consultants first and second generation.”
Lisa is able to drop Lewis off at school everyday, and picks him up three days a week too. She says: “I work from my centre two days a week, and yes, I work pretty long hours on those two days, but that allows me to be at home for rest of the week.
“The direct selling business beautifully enables me to mix being an almost full-time mum with the rewards of running a full time direct selling business.
Lisa gets to go on days out with her children, has regular play dates and she even takes Chloe with her when she’s networking for her business. And Chloe is a huge hit with her dieters too! Lisa is also showing her children that if you work hard, you can play hard too.
What a great example she is setting to her children and to all women!
She says: “I go to all the school events, and I get to see my children flourish by having the right balance for us all. I am even able to help out at the school, and have helped a local charity selling page raise money for the school.
“I really couldn’t imagine being able to do everything I do, or be around as much as I can if I worked full time for an employer.
“It’s the best job ever, I help around 70-90 dieters a week change their lives. I also love being able to help other people set up their own business as a Consultant so they can achieve the life balance that I have, and earn good money at the same time.”
“I’ve even been able to afford a cleaner, something that I believed was way beyond my reach some time ago.”
