These amazing electronic notebooks allow you to take handwritten notes and then upload them via the app. They’re great for taking to meetings and conferences to take notes but also brilliant for people who prefer to get creative with a pen and paper but don’t want impact on the environment by creating more waste.
Lots of mums in business work in coffee shops. This is usually because if they try and work from home they are distracted by the endless washing pile, the hoovering that needs doing and perhaps even the latest episode of their favourite box set. Chromebooks are great for working out and about. They are small, light and, because they aren’t as expensive as laptops, I feel happier taking mine out with me.
Sharpies and highlighters
I’m a massive stationery addict and a lot of my fellow mums in business are too. Markers in every colour under the sun are brilliant for creating plans and highlighters in a variety of shades are essentially for note taking, not to mention just looking beautiful on the desk!
Family life is chaotic. When you add running a business to that, things get even crazier. Being able to see the whole year spread out in front of you can really help to keep track of what’s going on when, to avoid double bookings.

A tidy desk equals a tidy mind. Or at the very least, look pretty. A set with a magazine file, letter sorter, business card holder, pen pot and memo pad holder can make sitting down to work feel much more pleasant.
Getting your first business card as a self employed person is a pretty special feeling. Having somewhere special to keep them is even better. These are great for keeping cards safe in your handbag (or changing bag!) when you’re out and about, you never know who you might meet at the soft play!
When you run a business, you order a lot of stuff and you usually need it quickly. I often used to find myself waiting until I had enough to order to make the delivery charge worth it.
