Parents in Business Magazine Issue 12
Welcome to the 12th issue of the Parents in Business Magazine
Family, inspiration and business are the focus of this issue. Shona Chambers reviews the book – How to raise entrepreneurial kids. Kavin Wadhar and Salihah Agbaje have both written articles that cover children and their wellbeing. A recent report revealed that many families are navigating the rapidly changing digital world with little discussion or openness. Rubbi Bhogal-Wood, a Social Media Educator, covers children and social media.
There’s never a perfect time to start a business, but even if there were, starting a business in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic probably wouldn’t qualify. Our special feature covers 6 inspirational parents who started a business during the pandemic.
We have interviews with Grace Trowbridge, Founder of Simply Noir, and Samantha Francis, a Positive Parenting and Relationship Specialist.
For many business people, achieving a profit is the main objective. However, some businesses have the main target to achieve a goal that benefits society. This is the goal of Laura Rana, Founder of Khushi Kantha. ‘Khushi Kantha’ means ‘Happy Blanket.’ Read about this social cause on page 26.
We have articles covering social media, brand activism, and so much more.
Whether you are thinking of starting a business or own a business, the Parents in Business Magazine offers the best advice to support you on your business journey.
