Be an example for your child

“My kids were twelve and thirteen when I lost my job and began a business from home. Looking back, I can see how important it has been for them to see me pick myself up and start again. They could witness the daily issues in the business and see first-hand how I confronted impediments big and small – from setting up computers to organising the daily run to the post office. Consequently they saw me in all my moods, learnt to economise and shared the exhilaration of our first success.” – Rex Finch, owner, Finch Publishing
