BaM was co-founded by Kate Christie in 2008 and in 2015 Kate bought the business and expanded under the Time Stylers brand!
At BaM, we know how busy you are, how hard it is to manage the work/ life juggle and how sometimes you just need an extra pair of hands. BaM solves this problem by putting you in touch with local housekeepers, cleaners, babysitters, nannies, gardeners and other domestic helpers.
Kate know’s first hand all about busy’ness. Prior to having kids, she was a lawyer and senior executive who worked hard and had the energy, confidence and focus to back herself and grow her career. But then, in quick succession she had three babies in 3.5 years all while trying to maintain her career, juggle work, a husband and a home. Kate was exhausted, stressed, guilty about her choices, and working like a crazy woman trying to keep all the balls in the air.
Something had to give – eventually it was Kate. She opted out of her career to stay at home to care for her kids, because she felt that this was her only option.
But, what her time out gave her was the time and the freedom to reframe and to realise 3 key things:
- you don’t need to have it all, just chase the important bits
- you don’t need to do it all yourself
- you don’t have to choose between success at work and success at home, you can have both.
BaM is here to make your life easier, to give you choice, and to help you Outsource the tasks you don’t want to do or can’t do in a way which is simple, effective and, let’s be frank, a little addictive! BaM removes the stress and leg work normally associated with recruitment by providing direct access to local domestic experts. Less stress, less guilt and the best results.
You don’t have to do it all on your yourself.
