The Story

My business name is simply my own name! Keeping things simple and stress-free is at the heart of my brand, and my name pretty much reflects this.

Best advice given

If you love your work, you'll never work a day in your life.

Business day

Lists!
I love to do lists (what needs to be done) and ta-dah lists (what you have done).

Mind yourself...

Treat everybody how I would expect to be treated.

Always trust your gut instinct. If something doesn't 'feel' right, it probably isn't.

Best advice outside business
Proudest moment

The first time I was recommended to another business owner - there's nothing better than that!

Funniest moment

When I working as a freelancer for a data company, I accidently whatsapped the boss and asked him he fancied lasagna - I was supposed to be messaging my family group chat!

Enjoy every day - learn from every moment.

A younger you?
Inspiration
Mel B from The Spice Girls! When I left an abusive home and was homeless, she had recently published her book about her experiences - many of the things she had been through were the same things I had just escaped. She highlighted how 'strong' women can become abuse victims, and used her voice to raise awareness of this issue.
anthem for business

Kiss - My Way.
It's a song about empowerment, strength, fighting for what you believe in and giving everything your best.
All of these are the basis of everything I do in business!

"why" For business

To help other business owners - I've been there. I've seen how stressfull things can be, and how business can destroy creativeness -  but it doesn't have to be that way.
And My children - to give them security and let them see that if you put your mind to something, nothing is impossible,

other jobs

Bingo Caller, Care Home worker, Warehouse Packer, online English teacher.

mission

To help people make their social media enjoyable, simple and easy. It doesn't have to be stressful.

My experiences. I've really been right to the bottom and built everything back up. I know first hand how hard things can be and how to turn things around.

Unique selling point
causes or projects
passionate about

Domestic violence awareness - I'm usually raising money to support women and children who have to leave abusive shome. I work a lot on twitter to help raise awareness of red flags and warning signs - I've even written a book (under a pen name) to raise awarenss.

get into your industry

Just go for it. Do and create - enjoy the process. Don't let anyone put you off - lots of people assume you can't make a career out of your creativeness.
