How you CAN have it all on YOUR terms, with joy, love and abundance, without compromising your business or career goals, or your baby's needs.
Join Pinky McKay, best-selling baby care author, lactation consultant, infant massage instructor and 'Mummy Mentor' on this ground-breaking tele-series as she interviews a 'Who's Who' of internationally successful entrepreneurs and professional women who are all mothers walking the talk of 'Family First' as their highest value.
This recorded series is for you if:
You are sick of treating your business or career like a hobby that fits around everyone else's needs but you feel confused and anxious how you can ever get ahead – without breaking down, blowing the family budget or bowing out altogether. You would love to share your career and business goals with your partner but right now, they just see you as taking time and attention away from them and the kids. And, as for spending money on study, training courses or business development - you daren't share what you are planning because you know that will only create more stress!You know you have a brilliant gift to share with the world and you feel a sense of responsibility to 'get it out there' but you aren't sure about the best (and easiest) way to do this so you CAN have it all with joy, love and abundance, without compromising your career and business goals or your baby's needs.'
It can be daunting to have to juggle and justify between family needs and your own drive for success (to yourself as well as others), especially when it seems that you are making all the sacrifices. It can be equally frustrating to explain to people who do offer support for your business or career goals but don't understand that your highest value is 'family first' and in practice, this means prioritising your family because if it doesn't work for them, it won't be sustainable for you.
If you have chosen to parent in a very 'hands on ' way – to breastfeed, to minimise separations from your child until YOU feel they are ready and to 'be there' with energy and presence as your children grow, it can be almost impossible to find support and role models who can show you how to combine this conscious style of parenting with career and business success.
That's why I have designed this recorded series.
I want you to know that having a meaningful career or business does NOT mean you have to compromise your baby's needs or your family relationships. You CAN design your working life around your family life (rather than the other way round), in a way that works for YOU! And this teleseminar series will show you how.

This exciting series features interviews with an international 'who's who' of heart centred business women, career achievers and entrepreneurs who can show YOU how to create a successful balance between babies and business or boardroom, because as well as being successful in their careers, these women are all nurturing, 'hands on' mothers who walk the talk of "Family First' as their highest value.
They will share their trials and triumphs, their challenges and 'cheats' (yes you can use a hospital breast pump when you are the director of obstetrics!); their strengths (mothers are amazing at multi-tasking!) and their absolutely practical strategies that you can implement too (how else would they cope without a superwoman cape and magic fairy dust?).
Learn how you can have the best of both worlds – baby and business – as you define what success is to you; what matters most; and how you can design a working life on your own terms, that will work for YOUR family.
And, just to inspire you totally – these women are no light weights in their working world! Some are millionaires in their own right (that means not being born with a silver spoon in their mouth or marrying a wealthy partner who funds their business); others have changed careers or started businesses when they had babies because the work they trained for wasn't compatible with newborn needs or 'being there' as their babies grew.
Although these women have been especially chosen because they are successful business and career women as well as being family focussed, they have travelled very different journeys. This means that there will be a range of role models to inspire and guide you. It also means that there will be no pressure as to what is the 'ideal' mother or definition of 'success' and no judgment about how any of us 'should' nurture or work or ,manage the combination of cradle and career. There is a wide spectrum of how families manage, why women need paid work, what support we can each enlist or afford and whether we feel better working at home with children around, in a separate environment with littlies being cared for by other loving arms, or whether baby and briefcase both sit next to your desk. Often there is no choice about how or whether we work outside the home, but we can make the best of whatever situation we have.
What you will learn from this recorded series:
On this recorded series, our inspiring guests will show you how you too can have it all – whatever 'it all' means to you. This may mean having 'it all' right now or it could mean 'sequencing' so that you have it all, although not all at once, but in stages as your family grows. Whichever style you choose, you will come away with the tools to make it happen – on your terms!

Dianne Merriweather and Gina Lowinger - Melbourne
Career, kids and care – who can you trust to care for your most precious possession and what you MUST ask when choosing the best care for your child.
Not everyone can combine cradle and career, not everyone can rely on family carers and not everyone has the financial option of hiring a private carer. So, how do you go about choosing a childcare centre where your child will thrive and not just be another little 'face in the crowd'?
Dianne will discuss:
- What effects childcare can have on your child – the good, the bad and the downright ugly (that's why it's important to explore your options and choose carefully)
- What you MUST look for when choosing care for your baby or child.
- What you MUST ask before leaving your most precious possession in the care of ANYBODY, anywhere
- How to make certain that your child is happy and secure in the care situation you have chosen.
- What YOU need to do to achieve the best outcomes for your little one right now and in the longer term.
Gina will tell us:
- The practical steps she took to choosing centre based care for her child so she could return to work.
- How she was able to implement a mutually agreeable orientation plan for her child.
- The ONE thing you MUST know about centre based care before you plan and time the transition to childcare for your child.

Business with babies on board
Two inspiring Aussie business mums will share their individual stories of creating and managing their own businesses to fit around nurturing babies and small children in a very 'hands on' style.
Katherine Beaumont, co-director of Dream Express International, a business training organisation supporting business owners and entrepreneurs, and Anita Lincolne Lomax, Director of Babes in Arms, will tell you first-hand how they juggle deadlines, manage meetings, hire staff (when it's time to hire and the best way to delegate who does what) , travel with babies, and also manage to deal with the messy bits of mothering – from sleep deprivation to baring boobs and baby bottoms on planes. They will share their 'sacrifices' and their shortcuts so you too will know – YOU CAN DO IT TOO!
When Director and now mother-of-three Anita Lincolne-Lomax was introduced to the award-winning ERGObaby Carrier in 2004 with her first baby, her passion for babywearing was born. The liberty to be 'hands-free' meant she could balance her daily needs (Anita was then working in her own practice as an architect) with those of her children. These practical benefits, along with the emotional and physical advantages of babywearing inspired Anita to become the Australian and New Zealand distributor for ERGObaby and a keen babywearing advocate. And so, Babes in Arms was 'born'.
The business has now extended its specialist range of ERGObaby Carriers to include other award-winning baby slings and carriers from around the world - the celebrity endorsed designer Peanut Shell pouch sling and the cool, water-friendly Breeze Baby mesh sling - all carefully selected for offering ergonomic support for both baby and parent and their suitability from birth to preschool. Complimenting the carriers and slings are two fashion accessory brands, BabyLegs leg and arm warmers and Baby Bella Maya's designer baby shoes and leggings.
Anita is a proactive advocate about the benefits of babywearing and supports many maternity hospitals and health professionals throughout Australia with well researched babywearing information. Anita aims to encourage mothers from all walks of life and of all parenting styles, to reclaim the joy and freedom offered by the ancient tradition of Babywearing.
After graduating as a Naturopath, Katherine Beaumont began her career in the corporate health sector and climbed all the way to the top being the youngest General Manager (at the time) of an Australian Vitamin company. After leaving the industry and having learnt a lot about how to do business and how not to do business, Katherine met her husband Dale and together they started their own company.
Dale and Katherine were initially involved with running life skill seminars for teenagers. After they were married in Hawaii came the book series "Secrets Exposed". Dale & Katherine published 11 books in 1 year! It was crazy! As the last book went to print their first son Finn was born. Business continued to grow and expand with so many people wanting access to what the books offered 'live', hence "Business Blueprint" was born, a seminar series designed for business owners to make their life easier, to step back and grow their business in the most cost effective way possible by having access to the latest business information form the experts themselves. And most importantly for business owners to have a life! Their second son Callan was born the day after one of these seminars!
By having their own business what Katherine realised is that it is important to integrate family with work in a fun chaotic way. "The boys are an integral part of everything we do, I believe it is important for them to see their parents work hard and play hard- it is about making the best of the blessings (and challenges) you are given".
