Episode 12 - How my child's Cerebral Palsy diagnosis created miracles with Sera Johnston

A mother’s world came crashing down in 5 words “your daughter has Cerebral Palsy”.  Sera shares her inspirational story of coming to terms with a child’s life-changing diagnosis and how determined mothers can create miracles and help their child defy all expectations.  Hear how this mum moved mountains to raise $75k in just six months for an operation only available in the USA.  She believed this operation could be the answer, but even she didn’t expect what happened to her daughter as she boarded the plane home. Having writing a book about her daughter’s experience, she’s gone on to create changes in the system and services to make sure other mothers raising children with disabilities in the UK get the support she wished she’d had.

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
