A Successful Mother in Business


Every business mum wonders how to have it all, so Sharon Tieman (aka Madame Marketing) spills the beans in her book, If I’m So Successful, How Come I Never Get To Be On Top?

The media often talks about “Superwomen” in reference to those who want to be a successful entrepreneur, mother and wife (not necessarily in that order!).

While the title may not be unwelcome, it doesn’t take a superhero to be a successful woman in business who has a great personal life – it just takes some practical techniques Sharon has perfected throughout her years being a business mum.

“So many woman look at others in business and wonder how they do it all. They think there is a magic formula or a way of finding a 27-hour day, but it’s much simpler than that,” Sharon explained.

“My version of success is still getting to enjoy being a wife and a mother, as well as enjoying the challenges and adrenalin rush I get from business. I’ve learnt being a mother in business is about self correction, not perfection, and being really clear about what you want and what your version of ‘success’ looks like.

“My book, If I’m So Successful, How Come I Never Get To Be On Top?, gives other women the knowledge to get on top of everything and be the successful woman they have been aspiring to be for years,” she said.

In her humorous and to-the-point style, Sharon exposes the shortcuts, myths and tricks she learnt to succeed in life – without feeling like an exhausted wreck.

She outlines the five easy steps to fast-track business and “get on top”, valuable tips on making business work (including working with your husband!) and lays bare the tricks behind marketing.

The first edition of If I’m So Successful, How Come I Never Get To Be On Top? sold out in just eight weeks.

When not writing best-selling books, Sharon can be caught at her home office during schools hours, working on her multi-million dollar catering supply business or her online passion www.madamemarketing.com

If I’m So Successful, How Come I Never Get To Be On Top? Is $19.95 (inc postage and GST) and is available from Madame Marketing and all good book stores.
