When I started Jongleurs in the early days, what I really really liked was other women to turn to and what Modern Muse will give us and is giving is the ability to turn to other women who will feel that they can pass on their knowledge now, which at that time, I don't think we had enough experience to be able pass on knowledge, and weren't enough women, so everybody had the head down doing what they did.
Bloke can go down to the pub and they talk to each other in the pub about, you know, what's good for business and what isn't; they go to the football or rugby. Women go home and look after their kids in isolation and to have a company that actually helps you to do that is just unbelievable really, it's so vital for women particularly because then you can do it at nine o'clock at night, you can send an email or have some communication at the time when you are stuck at home in some ways.
I'd love to bring young women through and influence them. In a way truly mentor them, be there when they want to pick up the phone, and help them in their understanding of business.
