Meet Shannon, Co-Founder of Oh Mumma

Hey, I’m the 50% American side of Oh Mumma!  I grew up all over the place in the US but San Francisco was where I lived the longest and a piece of my heart will always remain there. My mum had me super young and it was just me and her from the beginning. She worked a lot and I spent lots of time being carted around to babysitters, friends, and neighbours.

Finding Flexibility: The Superpower women already have...

We caught up with Nancy Powell, creator of Herd Bags to hear her story and what an inspiring one it is...   The idea of working for myself and setting up my own business was something that had simmered for years, decades even, but if I was being honest with myself it was far more likely that I would stay solidly within the PAYE world of assured salary and performance reviews.  For me being a business owner and building a brand was something that really did epitomise ‘success’.
