Laundry Business Opportunities for Australian Mums in QLD, Victoria & NSW
Susan Toft, CEO of The Laundry Lady has been nominated for the 2021 AusMumpreneur Awards as it continues to bring its mobile laundry services to even more locations nationally.
The AusMumpreneur Awards, presented by The AusMumpreneur Network, celebrate and recognise Australian Mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business excellence, product development, customer service and digital innovation.
The Awards are designed to shine a light on the growing number of women who successfully balance motherhood and business in a way that suits their life and family.
It can be challenging to be a successful business woman whilst raising a family, a struggle which prompted Susan to take the leap and launch her own venture.
“Like many new mums, the return to work after maternity leave sparked a major work-life balance crisis where I questioned how I was going to do it all – continue working in a busy corporate career and find the time to be the mum I wanted to be,” she says.
“I wanted to help other mums and dads struggling with the same work-life balance, by creating a flexible work from home business that could be replicated all over Australia.”

Susan offers some practical advice for others thinking about starting their own enterprise.
“Surround yourself with like-minded individuals who will connect you to knowledge, build your network and keep you motivated.
