About

We set up the The Mother Hub because we wanted to create a space both online, and perhaps more importantly in the 'real world', where women can come to encourage, support and inspire one another. Whether it's in business, motherhood, or simply tips on how to style out the 'messy hair don't care' look on the school run, we could all do with a little extra support. Social media is an amazing tool but nothing  beats real human interaction. Through our workshops, meet ups and events we want to bring virtual relationships into the real world. For insta buddies to meet over a coffee, have a giggle and start exciting conversations.  At the Mother Hub we truly believe that when women work together amazing things can happen. We can't wait to get started.

We launched The Mother Hub in September 2016, which seems fitting seeing as it was almost exactly ten years since we first met. (Although to be honest it feels more like a lifetime ago!) Back then, things were a little different... We were both working at Bloomberg; Juliet was heading up Bloomberg's global customer service department and Natasha was travelling between London and Madrid as a sales and account manager for Spanish banks.  We were child-free, single and full of ambition! Fast forward a few years, (and three kids between us!) and we still found ourselves in the corporate world but after some time, for various reasons, we each decided to take the opportunity to set up on our own. Juliet became an executive coach and Natasha launched an online retail business. Once we decided to take the big step of working for ourselves, what we definitely missed the most was having a 'hub' of like-minded women to connect with and gain inspiration from. Whether it was a simple chat about how to tackle social media for business, or advice on handling child-induced sleep deprivation! Whilst the local business networking groups here in Essex were useful and soft play provided a welcome chance to chat with friends, we knew there had to be something in between... And so The Mother Hub came to be.
