Hi, I’m Mary Cummings, a business woman, mentor, author and mum of three.

I help self-employed parents learn how to build a successful, profitable, business the family-friendly way!


When I experienced the challenges of running a business with young children in tow, it seemed only natural that I should help others learn from my mistakes.

Work and Life Your Way

I founded  Work Your Way to celebrate and nurture the entrepreneurial spirit in parents who want to take care of a family AND make a lucrative living, with all the flexibility that working for themselves can afford.

But I want to do more than just help parents start their own business.  I want to help self-employed parents learn how to build a highly successful and profitable business.


I now work 3 days a week –  Mondays, Wednesdays and the occasional Friday.  The other days I’m usually doing voluntary work for my local church, or simply playing with the kids.  No, I haven’t made my $Millions (yet)!


There seems to be a myth ‘out there’, that if you’re a self-employed parent, you have to settle for a business that just pays the bills.   And that’s because seemingly, the only other alternative is a materialistic, go-getting, high-flying entrepreneur, who’ll stop at nothing to achieve the giddy heights they feel they deserve.


Mention to anyone that of course you want to build a profitable business, but at a slower pace so that you can enjoy your life along the way – well you can’t be a serious entrepreneur, can you!

I think that’s SO far off the mark!


Being a great parent and a successful entrepreneur – parentpreneur – is easier than you think once you learn how to implement powerful strategies to help you achieve it.

I don’t know how you feel about the prospect of owning your own successful business or connecting with parent entrepreneurs eager to share their stories and lend a helping hand, but to me, Work Your Way is the website I wished I had found when I launched my first business.


When you really think about it, there is no difference between running a business and raising kids. Both are disciplines mastered over time, both demand oodles of TLC and neither comes with an instruction manual.
