How long have you been doing the Hustle and Juggle?

For a year!

What is the Juggle to your Hustle?

I run my own business called Lingotot Sutton which delivers French and German classes to children aged 0-11 whilst juggling looking after two children.

Tell me more about your business?

Lingotot delivers fun and interactive language classes to children aged 0-11. I run French and German classes in the community in Cheam.  Colourful, lively and interactive, classes are jam-packed with songs, movement, child-friendly props, music, stories and bilingual toys. Refreshments for adults and children are provided in the lovely cafes during the class. Sessions last for 45 minutes and you will also receive a colourful Lingotot support booklet at the start of each term. Language learning really is child`s play!  I also work in a local primary school teaching French.

What is your Hustle and Juggle story?

I left my job as a French teacher in a local secondary grammar school in an attempt to get some more work-life balance and to be around to look after my children as much as possible. I decided to join Lingotot as I really believe in teaching children a language as soon as possible. I love what I do and have made some great friends along the way but there are times when I get frustrated that I can’t give the business more time and I then feel guilty not being with the children when I’m working. I also feel that I very rarely switch off!  The best thing about my business is seeing how quickly my little Lingotots pick up the language and how much French and German they now know!  It’s amazing!

What’s your message to anyone reading this to inspire them to keep going and remain visible?

Try and wake up every day and remember why you decided to take this new challenge! I often remind myself that I am very lucky to be doing something I enjoy whilst calling all the shots and being around for my children a lot too.
