A new resource is available to Mums who want to start their own business but are unsure if or how to start and if the time is right, while raising a young family.

Melanie Toye’s online course, “Use your maternity leave to start your own business,” is a do it yourself start-up course that gives Mums the confidence to start their own biz and a go-to guide on how to begin.

“Women want it all, time at home with their children, supporting their family by earning an income and working in a business they love, which is their own,” said Melanie Toye, mother of two, author of 11 books and her own boss in building her writing career.

Women have three options when their maternity leave comes to an end:

  1. Return to their old job and negotiate a flexible working arrangement, such as part-time.
  2. Find a new job that is flexible and possibly closer to home.
  3. Extend their maternity leave and earn their own income.

Maternity leave gives women a time to really think about their life and career and wanting a change in career and the ability to work from home to be with their children is a huge tick on many Mum’s wish lists.

The important lesson for all women and Mums in particular to know is, they can chase their dreams and bring up their children too. Now is the time to do it.

What happens when you fall asleep to dream? Does it ever feel real? Maybe because it is…

“The ‘why am I here’ question pops into my head and just as swiftly disappears. I feel no fear, no pain and no sadness. What world could portray this? I am flying now. All movement is effortless. I feel like I have been flying every day of my life. I do not have to think about how to fly, I just fly. Another magical trait this world offers.” ~ Excerpt from Destiny Lane by Melanie Toye

DL Front Final - coloured title

Imagine a world where having what you want is readily and immediately available. A pure and innocent world that is only accessible by very few, through their dreams.

Destiny Lane is an imaginative and captivating world, filled with friendships, new experiences, out of this world abilities and love interests. When Sara falls asleep, she realises Destiny Lane – her dream world – is real.

Sara has to wrap her mind around new concepts that she has never had to consider before. A world with no money, using the mind to create what one wants and the default emotion of peace. In the meantime, Sara’s life on Earth is below par. Sara is a head-hunter for a modelling agency, Mode Appeal. She seems to have lost her zest for the direction of her career. When Sara starts to explore other avenues, she discovers her real talent is in architecture.

To assist Sara in her current challenges, Sara’s past lives are revealed to her. Life as a princess and an army leader aid in uncovering the answers. Will she choose the same man she loved in a past life that had her killed? And will she use her leadership skills to try and save Destiny Lane from corruption?

Sara is faced with several hard decisions. A love life which only fits into one world. One world she must leave forever. And to be a leader and fight for the survival of Destiny Lane.

Enter this fantasy world through Sara’s dreams and see the magnificence of such a place that is heaven-like. Witness the power of angels, the in-between – a place between one world and the next, plus an array of other fantasy elements that will blow your mind.

By Sara’s life experience in Destiny Lane, she learns to have the confidence to live the life she has always dreamed of, on Earth.

This explosive read is light, moving and thought-provoking. It takes fantasy fiction to a new level.

Have the fire and ignite only when you have to

It’s interesting isn’t it when you go through life and look back on certain events. I remember a particular occassion that I felt completely wronged yet the person who had wronged me had assumed (wrongly) that I would not stand up for what I believed in. He kept pushing and pushing, as much as I hate conflict this was one event that I had to battle.

In my heart I knew it was what I had to do. I also knew that if I didn’t stand up for what was right, then this person would continually treat others with major disrespect.

About a year ago, I was losing my fire, I just felt like may be after all my fight in chasing my dreams, may be I should just give up. It was taking too long, was I even getting anywhere? At first, it was not just my dream to achieve, but a big dream that was for my children to witness and when they were ready to follow, chase their own dreams.

I had a person, who I had never met before, come to my home. She respectfully asked me, if she could tell me something… “You have lost your fire,” she said. She told me that she was driving to my home and saw a great big fire at my house but when she drove to the front of it, the fire dissipated.”

We had a little chat about how I just felt my dream was getting pushed away, I felt exhausted and run down and all those lies that we give ourselves I started to believe. Every day I had slowly told myself how I didn’t need to live my dreams anymore, that it was too hard with children and growing a family and that I should just accept the track I was on.

Thankfully, after I spoke with her, I realised that the lies I was telling myself were complete bullcrap! (And excuse me, I don’t normally add bad words to my written word, however, I want you to know how wrong it was!).

My dreams are everything, they are the cumbersome of who I am and to give up on them would only lead to a life filled with no passion, no excitement, no dreams… how sad.

Having fire is important, having the dream cemented in your brain more so. You need the dreams and you need the fire to go chase your dreams. Now spread your wings and fly. Big dreams aren’t achieved over night that’s why they are big!

Why it’s important to chase your dreams

Image via: rebloggy.com

I wondered once … really wondered, should I stop chasing my dreams and just go through life?

It’s a question that came up when I was absolutely exhausted. I had kept pushing myself to further and bigger heights as a writer. With this constant change and challenge, I also had to juggle with the rest of my life (which is 100% full on also).

So one day, I just thought, you know what, may be I should just give up? If I quit writing then I will have more time to do the other life stuff.

The truth is and I say this with a smile on my face, I love to write. It’s my passion. If I didn’t write, I would feel dead inside. I would feel like I was just living day to day to day, doing things that I feel like I should be doing (i.e. cleaning the house to perfection) and then one day I would either die sad or just combust and go do something utterly crazy, like not stop writing for days and days and days.

So you can ask yourself, if your dream is something that you can’t stop spending time on, then don’t. Never feel guilty for living your days doing what you love, because one day, your time will end and you will want to know that your days were filled with meaning.
