Episode 23 - Bounce back advice from a mum who's 20's were rocked by tragic loss and high pressure with Becki Imrie
Becki was not your typical 20-something year old. A young carer from the age of 18 when her father was diagnosed with dementia, Becki then tragically later lost her older brother who suddenly suffered a heart attack at only 35. This family tragedy was followed two years later by her father’s passing, while still only in her 20’s and juggling a 40 hour a month qualification on top of a full-time, demanding high-pressure corporate career. Almost 10 years on, this mum shares her experience of what it took to keep going and bounce back when you’ve been subjected to incredible life pressures from all different angles so early in life?
What we cover
- At the age of 18 Becki starting her career in the Insurance Industry
- How Becki juggled working full time and also caring for her dad who was diagnosed with early Dementia
- The impact of losing her brother suddenly to a heart attack at the young age of 35
- How being brave and putting on a brave face for months was exhausting and how she learnt to just focus on the things you can control

In collaboration with...
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 referall 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
