About Mim Jenkinson

Hi, I’m Mim! I’m a married mother of two small children, living in Newcastle, NSW. Originally hailing from the UK, I emigrated to Australia in 2007 after a whirlwind holiday romance with my Australian husband.

Mim Jenkinson at Self-Start MumsWith a career in event marketing, sales, HR and career coaching spanning 20 years, I always knew that my ultimate goal was to work for myself. I didn’t know what that would be for years later!

My entrepreneurial spirit was given the ultimate chance to shine in 2015 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. When faced with the need to leave employment to undergo aggressive treatment, I took advantage of the opportunity to also pursue my own business, Love from Mim. Within just a few months I had turned my “hobby blog” into a profitable business, earning more than any previous role.

I now spend my time continuing to build my blog, consulting for other start-up businesses and building a network of collaborative mums in business here, at Self-Start Mums.
