Freelance Marketing Consultant
I am Sophie Comas, Founder of Rimu Marketing. I am mother of 2 cheeky boys, aged 6yrs and 8yrs and passionate about helping ambitious businesses owners to create effective marketing, sport, travel and great design. I specialise in helping small/ medium size businesses to connect with their ideal client, by using all assets in their marketing tool kit. So how did Rimu Marketing come about? Well, after being made redundant from my corporate marketing role I was looking for another challenge, and wanted something which worked around my family, I tried looking for other roles but could not find something that fitted. After a conversation with a friend who had a reflexology business and needed some marketing help I took the leap of faith and set up Rimu Marketing https://www.rimumarketing.co.uk. Here I am 3 1/2 yrs later and loving my job!
I am Caroline Peal, mother of an eight year old and step grandmother to a newborn!

During my career I have had reporting and editing roles on national newspapers both here and in the US. I have also handled a wide variety of arts and business accounts for top UK based PR firms. I now volunteer for various community based charities within the wellbeing sector, helping host group sessions where service users can gather to share their experiences and support one another.

Mirella Salomone Koderisch
Freelance Graphic Designer
I am Mirella Salomone a wife and a mother to my amazing son Milo. I’m also a graphic designer! After a 15 year career in print design I took time out to look after my new born. When my son started school in 2016 I saw an opportunity to work around his schools hours which gave me valuable time to work on a strategy on how to re-engage with my career. Starting point was my website, www.mirellaskdesign.com. I then began introducing myself to the local business community. I met business owners looking for graphic design expertise without the agency price tag. That has been the key! I have positioned myself as an experienced graphic designer offering high quality work at the fraction of the cost of agency fees and have since completed some amazing projects for local businesses. It has been a challenge, continues to be but also incredibly rewarding and exciting.
Web analytics, digital marketing and ecommerce
I am Rebecca West, after deciding the commute to London from the Midlands every day wasn’t allowing me the time to spend with my daughter I decided to set up a web analytics consultancy: www.funnelmetrics.co.uk. I am a web analytics enthusiast, having used tools such as Google Analytics and Adobe Marketing Cloud for over 15 years. I am hugely passionate about increasing standards and usage of web analytics tools by empowering others to engage with their data to support their business growth.
I am Fiona Clark, a qualified Career and Confidence Coach with over 11 years’ experience. I ‘fell’ into my first career and therefore know all too well what it feels like to be stuck on the wrong path, without any idea how to get out of the rut and find a career that plays to your strengths and motivates you. I founded Inspired Mums when I realised many mums have lost their confidence, many felt trapped or simply lost and needed professional help to rediscover themselves, their confidence and find a flexible career that fits around the family. I am mum to 2 very energetic boys, so the running joke in our house that I go to work for a break!
