Bounce - Living today, protecting tomorrow

When I met Ashley, the CEO of the insurance company Bounce, and Rachel Brookes, the Network Development Manager, it was clear from the start that Bounce and Mpower share similar values around empowering others (particularly mothers) and creating opportunities to flexibly combine earning a great living with motherhood.

Bounce not only proivdes people with the right insurance products to potect their families, health and business they are also hugely passionate about providing flexible opportunities for mums to earn additional income. 

With zero risk and zero investment, Bounce empowers mums in business to make a difference to the lives of others with their insurance services and enables them to transform their own lives through becoming part of a supportive and vibrant Bounce network and community and building a primary or additional source of income by becoming a Bounce referal partner.

So, I’m really excited to be bringing you this podcast series in collaboration with Bounce. I know how difficult it can be to earn a great living while your building your startup, particularly in those first few years. So the Bounce referral opportunity for a product which is all about essential peace of mind and protection could be a perfect business opportunity or compliment to your existing business. - you can find out more about creating an additional Bounce income by visiting the Bounce Nework website
