One mum who has set up a successful enterprise and maintained a work life balance in Sarah Steel, winner of the first ever 'Inspirational Business Mum of the Year Award' sponsored by Yellow Pages at the 2007 Prowess Awards. Sarah set up 'The Old Station Nursery' after leaving the army to become a full-time mum to her second child.
Unable to find suitable childcare in her local area, Sarah decided to take matters into her own hands.
