Firstly, two corrections to clear up from the Automation podcast 

  • I said Debbie set up Mums Ultd and the Shining star awards 3 years ago. Mums has been going a lot longer. It was the Awards that she introduced 3 years ago.
  • I said the podcasts take me so long it would be quicker for me to write a podcast. I obviously meant blog posts. I've got podcasts on the brain. Anyway, with that cleared up, the show notes are below but do take a listen to the episode above.

  • If you don’t follow me on social media then you probably haven’t seen my news. All my socials will be at the bottom of these show notes. I’m most active on Instagram and Facebook. 

    This week I was awarded the MUMS UNLTD Silver Shining Star Award 

    The key criteria for being selected as a finalist included clearly demonstrating their business knowledge, experience, creativity, commitment to customer care and strong evidence of business achievements. Share the award, members and the industry. 

    Mums Unltd is a Hertford based networking group that has expanded to include groups in Whitstable right up to Northamptonshire where I’m based. Set up originally to help mums in business network at a time more suitable for childcare and school runs, it has grown over the years to include, mums of grown-up flown the nest kids as well as a few men.

    Debbie Gilbert, Founder of Mums Unltd created the Shining Awards 3 years ago to celebrate the achievements of mums in business. Her support and desire to see you succeed is evident in everything she does from her forthright no-nonsense business advice to a listening ear with tea and sympathy she is a great judge of knowing when you need which and has been a backbone to us all this year so thank you, Debbie, this year would have been harder for all of us without you and the fantastic group of women and men you have bought together.

    So in light of my Silver win, which I am super proud of, I wanted to celebrate and also I wanted to celebrate you as a wedding vendor who has made it through, whether you have found it manageable or struggled through 2020 you, my friend made it and you deserve a reward for that and your business deserves a gift. So my gift to you is a very special offer that I alluded to last week.

    Now let's get into automation.

    Whenever we have a break in our usual business flow taking a look at your automation is a great use of your time if you can get systems in place to work for you while your busy doing your actual business then it will just make you super-efficient

    In my mind batching and automation go hand in hand so I’m going to talk about both today. I’m not perfect at this, I know what I need to do but sometimes finding the time to do it can be difficult so I’ll go through my plan for getting this working for me rather than making me feel like a failure.

    So when we are thinking of putting automation into our business you want to look at what takes you the most time? 

    I hope that has helped you think about what takes up all your time and how you can get more efficient. Don’t forget to head over to and come and join us inside the SPWV. The Society is there to help increase your credibility with clients by providing you with a code of conduct that shows you hold yourself to a higher standard. We have some great members benefits inside too, so I hope you take advantage of my Christmas gift to you.
