Remember way back when, when starting your own business seemed like the *greatest* idea ever? Working on your own terms, more time with the children and unlimited earning potential #winning
And then reality set in. What was once a fairytale soon turned into a drama of self doubt, inadequacy and guilt.
Yes, we love the idea of playing a bigger game but when it comes to truly stepping into that space we feel... stuck. When we're not busy feeling guilty for not spending enough time with the kids, we're giving ourselves a hard time over not taking enough action with the business.
It's a constant mental battle and most days it feels easier to just go back to a *real* job than to continue.
But you just can't.
The pull of the business is just too strong.
And having to go back to the commute and the people? Ugh.
What you need is a better strategy.
A way to manage the mental highs and lows so that you can go out and create what you feel you were put here to create without buying into the story of whether you've got it in you or how much time you don't have.
And that's where our October Brunch steps in.
This month, we are joined by Clinical Psychologist and founder of The Conscious Mother, Dr Kirstin Bouse, to get to the bottom of why we hold ourselves back from stepping into our own and what we can do about it.
Sit down with us in Melbourne and Sydney this month as we have a very open discussion about the very real juggle that being a mum in business is and how you can truly step into your own success despite the doubt, the guilt and the fear.
Walk away with:
Kirstin has stamped her authority as one of the country's top thought leaders on Ambitious Mothers and how and they can create fulfilled lives without the negative headspace that goes along with it.
This Brunch will be truly special and we'd love to see you there.

"That was a wonderful brunch - my first! The energy in the room was collaborative without being sappy, and the conversations at the table were open, curious and positive."
Partnered with Upswing
- Shannon Young
The Mothers Den Brunch Sessions are a monthly event that brings together the growing pride of bright, talented mums building meaningful businesses on their own terms.
We know how isolating life can be when you juggle running a business with family. Not to mention how hard it can be to find focus and motivation when life is already hectic enough.
We are about providing you with a special space where you feel supported and inspired - all while giving you access to some of the greatest business minds to help you take your own business further.
Our Brunches also give you the opportunity to meet other amazing women, just like you, who walk the same path and understand your struggles.
Each Brunch includes a keynote speaker who will be sharing their knowledge for greater success, both in business and as a whole, with plenty of opportunity to mingle and meet other mums who walk a similar path.
To help make your morning as easy and stress free as possible, we have partnered with the incredible ladies at Upswing to offer you a limited number of child care spaces.
To reserve your spot, simply select a child ticket at checkout. Young babies who will happily sit in your lap do not need to be booked in.
"Just wanted to say a huge thank you! What an amazing morning. I was so inspired but just as impressed with the whole set up of the morning. Such a great venue, good food, smooth sailing event and such a relaxed atmosphere! Will def be telling my other mum entrepreneur peeps!!"
- Anna Chisholm, Nourished For Life
Can I bring my child(ren)?
Yes! We have partnered with Upswing to provide a limited number of childcare spots.
Young babies who will happily sit in your lap do not need a ticket.
What if I have special dietary requirements?
Just let us know when booking your ticket and we'll coordinate with the venue.
What if I buy a ticket and can't make it?
We know how unpredictable life with kids can be. As long as you let us know prior to five days before the event, we are more than happy to refund your ticket.
Do I need to have a business?
Definitely not. We get lots of attendees who are still in the process of figuring out what they want to do and just want to be in an inspired space and meet the right type of people. Owning your own business is definitely not a pre requisite to being a part of our Brunches.
Are the Brunch Sessions catered?
Yes, all of our events are fully catered. For our Brunch Sessions, we've teamed up with some of the best cafes and venues around Sydney to make sure that your morning is as relaxing and insightful as possible. While each venue is slightly different, you can expect to be treated to something a little bit sweet, something a little bit savoury, plus fruit, tea and coffee.
Can't make this one? No worries.
Just enter your details and you'll be notified of the next Brunch Session near you.
