In August 2017 our co-founder Jodie welcomed little Elsie into the world.  Here, we talk to Jodie about how she’s managing to run a growing business whilst looking after her new baby!

In the beginning…

Jodie set up Shaken Udder in 2004 with now husband, Andy Howie. It began as a top-notch, event-based brand bringing fresh milkshakes to the masses at events and festivals up and down the country, before winging its way onto retail shelves in 2008.

Fourteen years on and Shaken Udder is now one of the most talked about premium milkshake brands in the UK, with its range of delicious dairy products sold all over the UK in multiple retailers including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Ocado, WHSmith, Boots and The Co-op, as well as thousands of individual retailers throughout the UK.

From the start, Jodie has always been hands-on when it comes to Shaken Udder, looking after the sales and finance side of the business, meeting buyers and overseeing the marketing strategy. She also works on new product development and, in the early days, was even known to pull a trailer or two en-route to many music festivals!

Now, with a new member in the Shaken Udder family, Jodie is juggling her two babies: a successful milkshake brand that is growing significantly year-on-year and new baby Elsie!

 

With a new baby to care for, how are you managing to juggle work and being a mum?

Even before Elsie arrived I put plans in place to navigate the changes that were happening. I made sure I’d hired the right people so a strong team structure was in place. I also delegated some of the tasks I had been doing previously that I probably didn’t need to be doing anymore.

Becoming a mother has been a great opportunity to let go of some tasks and make sure I’m focusing on the jobs that’ll continue to help grow the business and maintain it’s current impressive growth trajectory.

However, it is a juggling act and if either Elsie or the business demands more of my time I respond to that. Add to that the fact that Elsie’s routines don’t stay the same for long, so it’s a constant process of change and adaptation. No one week is ever the same.

Despite that, I do try to maintain some sort of routine where possible and use every minute wisely. In the day when Elsie closes her eyes I use this as an opportunity to work. In the evenings when it’s a little quieter I use the time to concentrate on things I’ve not managed to get done during the day.

 

What are the biggest frustrations of running a business and having a family?

I naturally want to do it all, but I have come to realise that’s just not possible as my life and situation has changed.

I find it challenging not having the time to do everything I want to do to the level of detail I did previously, but I try not to give myself a hard time about it.

I’ve also come to accept that things don’t always go exactly to plan, so I now try to  just adapt and re-prioritise where needed.

 

What changes have you needed to make to become a ‘mumpreneur’?
I think the main change has been letting go of some of the day-to-day intricacies of the business and to focus on the key top line business stats. I’ve realised I don’t need to do everything myself to have a business that succeeds.

I’ve also got better at delegating tasks and handing over certain aspects of the business. Yes this has been hard, but it means I can channel my energy into specific tasks and not get bogged down with everything.

I also make sure I dedicate time to Elsie without business distractions and enjoy the time I spend with her. She’ll only be little for a short time and I don’t want to miss a moment!

 


Work-for-Us-.jpg

January 11, 20180

Start your new year off in the right way and get yourself a fab summer job. But not just any old summer job…a super fun one, working with moo’vellous people and a fantastic brand.  That’s right, we’re looking for event staff to tour with us this summer, serving milkshakes to the masses at festivals and events throughout the UK!

You’ll be making and serving fresh milkshakes with a fun-loving team of like minded people (training will be provided).  When you’re not working you’ll also have the opportunity to head out and see your favourite bands.  Your traders pass and wristband will give you access to quieter areas (and nice loo’s, always a winner!) that the general public don’t have access to.  Plus, since we’re so nice, we’ll even take all your camping bags, tents and equipment into the festival for you to save you lugging it all the way from your car!

We might be biased, but we think that’s a pretty cool summer job with plenty of perks!

We began our life as a festival regular back in 2004, bringing fresh, tasty and healthy milkshakes to music and milkshake lovers across the country. We pride ourselves on providing high quality milkshakes, made with British milk and real ingredients.  As dedicated ‘milkshakers’ we attend most major music festivals in the UK as well as other fantastic events including air shows, horse trials and county shows.  Check out our 2017 schedule of events to see what events we attended last year!

So do you and your buddies want to be part of our Crew? Of course you do!

Drop us an email to [email protected] with your CV and a paragraph telling us why you’d like to work for us!

But don’t hang about as places are limited and they go pretty fast!

Applicants must be aged 18+. Full UK Driving License preferable but not essential.
