Harvested by farmer’s wife Susan Payton, The Business of Mums creates an online community that allows women in business to ask each other the questions that plague every start up.

The size of the online community has allowed Susan to negotiate huge discounts on start-up tools and services for her members.

Susan said: "I'm so excited about this launch because I know how valuable this community would have been for me when I started out.

"I could have avoided so many expensive mistakes, so if I can help others avoid the same mistakes I'll be delighted."

The mother of two added: "I started my career as a single mum, but didn't let that stop me. I worked with celebrities, including Chris Tarrant and Gabby Logan, ran events and built my own property portfolio".

The online group has exploded since Susan invited her first 80 women and, in just four months, the number of members hit four figures.

As women joined in their droves and began to engage with each other, Susan gleaned real feedback about what challenges they faced, including how to increase exposure in the press and how to build a business website.

In the months that followed, she went in search of the answers, researching and seeking out people who could offer genuine solutions.

With such a large community following, Susan could have profited from the deals she was able to secure, but she looked past the short term profits and focused on the longer term relationship she could have with her community.

The launch, which will take place in The Business of Mum's business page and Facebook group, will include over £4,500 worth of business giveaways, including a year's subscription to PR platform JournoLink and a host of other start-up essentials.
