About Nadine Hill

Nadine is a busy mum (“Is there any other kind?!”) who writes the award winning family lifestyle blog, JuggleMum and self help blog Love Yourself Slim. Working from home at a portfolio career which also includes being the Editor at BritMums, running a small business and spreading herself all over social media, she has everything under control but still feels like she’s hanging on by her Gelish covered fingernails! Self employed for 13 years she’s been around the freelancing block a few times, so she created a YouTube playlist called The Businessmum Interviews to have a nosey at how other work-at-home parents are doing it. Watch and see – it’s a juggling act for everyone!
Immensely grateful to be doing what she loves, Nadine’s most important job is ‘Mum’ to her teen and tween who keep her up to date with Snapchat, Minecraft and how to do ‘brows on fleek’.
