So you love your business, you're incredibly passionate about making it a success but you find yourself flitting from task to task like a chicken with it's head cut off?

At the time, I had a two year old daughter Amelia, we were in the midst of what turned out to be another long journey of IVF, pregnancy and loss trying for our 2nd baby, and with some remaining commitments to the business I founded in London I wasn't 'working' here in NZ.
