BEING a full-time mother is the most satisfying job in the world.

When you add up all those daily hugs, kisses and smiles it is also the most rewarding.

Unfortunately hugs don't pay the bills and with this in mind, local mother-of-two Kylie Deans has worked hard for a life outside of her career in finance, striving to become a successful small business owner.

Founding online handbag company Genuine Baggage in 2007, this business-minded mother today serves as a director of a fast-growing online company.

"I love being a stay-at-home 'mumtrepreneur', I joke that over the past seven years I've been raising two boys as well as a company from home and I wouldn't trade that for the world," Kylie said.

"In the early days it was all trial and error, but through building a fantastic network of suppliers and loyal customers we've grown in the market.

"My first handbag sale paid for a sandpit, now the revenue is laying the platform for the future growth of this family-owned handbag company.

"The Australian marketplace still embraces retail stores as much as online shopping. I like to think some Genuine Baggage customers are busy mums who don't have time to drag the kids down to the store to try on our handbags, which is why we offer convenience from home with free postage.

"Busy people know the reality that many of us are time-poor these days, but hey, we work to live and there's always time for a woman to shop."

Big bags, small bags and big names such as Spencer & Rutherford, Kardashian Kollection, Pink Corporation, Dianna Ferrari, Tony Bianco, Manzoni, Sassy Duck, Missco, Lili and Spoilt by Senka handbags can all be found at Genuine Baggage.

To celebrate Mother's Day, Genuine Baggage is offering a 10% discount until the end of May.
