A Year in the Life of a Startup

This is a much more personal story than I’d imagined it would be when I started filming in May 2021, but I wanted to be as honest and open as possible to show what it’s really like to run a start- business…or how it’s been for me at least.

This is the first video I’ve posted that I’ve been nervous about (I’ve got butterflies as I’m writing this!), and I think that’s because some things are still raw, others are maybe a bit embarrassing, but I’ve kept it all in there in the hope of giving you an honest portrayal of start-up life – and just life in general!

I really hope this helps someone, gives them hope, or the kick up the ass they need to go out and chase their own start-up dream.

There’s never going to be a perfect time, or place, or idea – you just have to move with purpose and try to make the right choices. Learn from your mistakes so you don’t repeat them, discover who you are and what you really want from it all, and connect with others so you can share in their knowledge and successes too.

I hope you enjoy it – it’s been one heck of a year but one that I’m really proud of and excited to be able to share with you all.

p.s. you can of course get your very own networking notebook from HERE (I’d be daft not to put a link in while you’re here – I’m a start-up after all!) and if there’s anything you’d like to chat about, personal or professional, you can connect with me HERE.
