Discover the better way to care!

Did you know....

You can be SELF EMPLOYED as a carer!  Or a support worker or a PA, or whatever term you wish to use!

So just like a plumber or an electrician can offer their services as a self employed business, so can you as a carer.  The only difference being is that care is the service you provide! 

Let's bust the myth that you MUST  work for a company if you are a carer!  That is not true!  You CAN be your own boss!  You can be a Self Employed Carer!

Care has the biggest staff turnover rate of34%, 4 times higher than other industries!

The care industry struggles to retain staff, and recruit for that matter!  With long hours, low pay, delivering an overstretched service, a care job doesn't feel many people with joy!  And many who truly wish to provide great care, often end up leaving due to frustration with the system and the actual lack of caring!


But what if there was a better way to deliver care? 

A self employed carer cuts outthe middleman of a care companyand provides services direct tothe person needing care.

The self employed carer model is a better way to care, for all involved....

Self Employed Care truly is the Better Way To Care

Hi, I'm Maria

I help people who work in the care sector to see that there is a better way to care for both the people they care for and themselves!  I believe happy carers deliver fabulous care.  And the self employed care model allows carers to be happy, fulfilled and well rewarded for they fabulous job that they do! I help carers to build the confidence and clarity to go out, take the leap and create their very own thriving self employed care business.  

I'm a mum to two little boys, the Founder and CEO of the Professional Carers Network, a Self Employed Carer and Your Carer Coach!  And I'm here to help you every step of the way on your new business journey. ​​​​

I am a self employed carer myself,so I do what I teach each and every day!

After establishing my own self employed care service over 4 years ago, I have seen my care service thrive.  I work alongside my friend Cheryl, and we have been inundated with work since getting started, we turn work away on a weekly basis!  There is no big secret as to why, we are simply amazing at what we do!  We provide high quality flexible care tailored to the individual and their wishes and wants, not just their needs. 

But I'm no better than many many carers out there.  There are so many truly gifted and caring people working in the care industry that are stuck in low paying, dead end jobs, working long hours delivering an overstretched service, and they simply don't know they can work for themselves.  They don't know, there is a better way.  They don't know that they too, could have a thriving business!

I've created the Carepreneur Academy tohelp you get started on your business journey!

I've now helped over 100 carers to take the leap and go self employed and they have never been happier!  So I've put all that business building knowledge into a step by step course, the Carepreneur Academy!  Along the way of building my own business and then helping 100 more people do the same, I've learnt the little nuances that make a good business a great business.  Here's your chance to learn from others that have done it before you, benefit from my mistakes and learning, so you don't have to guess and worry, you can thrive straight away!


  Imagine finishing each and every day of work knowing you truly had provided the best care possible and excited to go back the next day to see your lovely clients!  And being well rewarded for the fabulous job that you do!  

Care can be a great career.  Being self employed, owning your own business, being your own boss, is the way we make care a career worth entering the industry for!  And we will be here to champion you every step of the way!

But don't just take my word for it......
