GET TO KNOW US
We created Another Mother in 2015, out of need and out of love.
On the 20th May, Anna was taking a Skype call, training a new admin assistant to help her out while she took maternity leave with her second child.
The wonderful woman who’d been helping out for the previous months was going back to Australia and so the handover was happening…
All was going smoothly. Except for the fact that Anna was already in labour!
The training was cut short and Anna was rushed to hospital by her friends in the nick of time. 45-mins after waddling through the hospital doors, Baby J was born.
And 2-hours later, the new admin lady… quit.
With her husband away in Ireland, the pre-schooler with her aunt and a tiny newborn in her arms, Anna had a cry, then got practical!
A quick Facebook status update asking if anyone was interested in an admin job changed the course of two lives!
As Anna checked emails from her hospital bed, her prayers were answered.
Kate (who was then just passing acquaintance) sent a PM asking about hours as she was considering not going back to her epic corporate job, following her mat leave with her own second baby.
Kate already knew the business and had admin experience so incredible it was almost too good to be true. A former head of music at a national radio station and head of sustainability for a global confectionery giant, Kate was craving something to keep her busy while taking care of her baby. She was massively over-qualified but absolutely perfect.
We agreed a trial and Another Mother was born!
Using Anna’s systems and innovations, together with Kate’s business sense, awesome customer service and incredible dedication, we were able to double the turn-over of Anna’s business while both taking care of two small children.
Making a success of one business was just the start... we wanted to help more business owners! Anna & Kate became Another Mother.
By 2017, Another Mother was providing admin services for 18 other small business with more in the pipeline.
By 2019 we had over 60 clients and 13 contractors and since then we've gone from strength to strength, even flourishing through the difficult COVID years and coming out the other side stronger!
And whilst our own success has been great, what we're most proud of is all the businesses who we've worked with (and still work with), all the entrepreneurs we've helped (and are still helping). Their success and growth is the most rewarding part of what we do. With our help, businesses flourish and business owners relax. That what it's all for!
Our next step is to help others launch their own admin businesses - with Another Mother franchises, we can reach more small and medium businesses, more start ups, more entrepreneurs, more influencers, more people who want to restore their work/life balance and see the success they've worked so hard for.
We'd love you to be part of our journey.
