When you become a parent your life changes forever, for the better people say. However my reality was different. After giving birth to my son, at the age of 22 my life took a turn for the worse. Feeling overwhelmed, suicidal and lonely.
From award winning radio presenter to receptionist……
To add to the challenges of motherhood, my work in the media industry completely dried up and I had to get a job in the city. Finally receiving a set salary every month, still trying desperately to get back into the media, paying ridiculous childcare & travel costs, which meant I was only left with £25 after a hard days work.
There must be another way to life!
That’s when Mum to Millionaire was born.
Why did you start your business? Comment at the end of this page, I would love to hear from you. Veena V xx

My story from the start
I’m 28 years old, I have a decade of experience as a Radio & TV presenter & I’m a single Mum to an amazing, challenging, hyperactive, cheeky, slightly annoying little boy. I love him so much but my goodness, I have never met another child that tests their parents quite like him.
Becoming pregnant at a “young” age and unexpectedly has made me even more motivated to succeed in life, not just for myself but also now for my baby. I always wanted the “perfect” life, where I was at the top of the career ladder, got married and then have children. But sometimes in life things don’t go exactly to plan.
I started in the radio industry at the age of 16 in Oxford, I then moved to London and had a successful show on a station in East London. At the age of 21, I won an award from Channel 4 for “Best Radio Presenter” and at the same time found out I was pregnant!
Me interviewing Rebecca Ferguson for MOBO TV
This was an extremely difficult time, as I really did not know what to do. So many questions arose; I’m too young, I’m such a career minded person – I can’t have a baby now, we are in a recession – I have no money, I’m not married, what are people going to think; I am not in the “ideal” situation at all. In the forefront of all of this I was also in an extremely volatile relationship.
I eventually came to the decision that I would have an abortion.
I went to the clinic, but just as I was about to sign the paper to continue with the termination I couldn’t do it. After 2 weeks of more thinking reality hit me, What the heck am I doing! I really can’t have a baby now.
I booked another appointment, I just felt that this was for the best even though my parents were adamant that I didn’t have to do it – they will support me. I couldn’t do this to my parents, I already felt like a failure.
So against my parents offer of help, I went to the abortion clinic again, I signed the paper and got changed into a robe. I lay on the operating table, I couldn’t stop crying, the doctor was about to inject me, I looked at the nurse and shouted out loud “No!”
It was that split second and feeling in my gut that changed my destiny and life forever.
Decision made 100%, I am not having a termination. Some of my own friends said I was making a mistake and they were disappointed in me. Is my life really over? I then thought how could I continue fulfilling my dreams, that’s when VIPregnancy was born.
YES – VIPregnancy is going to be the next Netmums & Mumsnet!
I wrote about pregnancy, parenting and my life as a single Mum
When I was pregnant and my son was a newborn I would work on the website every single day but slowly it became a chore to blog. So after 5 years of running VIPregnancy I killed it. I had no clear vision for it & lost all passion to do it. This video below explains more
In late 2014, I had a light bulb moment – how can I change my life?
I’m sick of struggling, I’m sick of chasing dream jobs, I’m sick of missing important events in my son’s life…
I know I’ll create my own business & media platform! Let me create the ultimate resource to show other busy Mums how to grow a business and spend quality time with their children at the same time.
I have changed so much and learnt a heck of a lot too! I’m now very strong and more focused than ever.
Life really is what you make it. Don’t dwell on the past
I used to think about all that time I’ve lost when I used to cry or moan and the truth is – it’s a waste of time even thinking about it. Just focus on being HAPPY and enjoying life with your amazing child.
Wow, I’m honored that you just read all of that! If you did please comment below, I would love to hear your story xx
If I can manage to keep achieving my goals & looking after a child – so can you!
