In my mid-twenties, after several years working in a range of various admin support roles in the corporate sector, I realised that I didn’t want to spend my life working for someone else. I wanted to be creative and build something of my own. With little business knowledge but lots of passion and a clear vision of what I wanted to achieve, I parted ways with my senior admin role and worked part-time while feeding my creative passion
After 8 months, I gave up my part time role to focus fully on building my creative passion. Since then I have learnt countless valuable lessons and have had some amazing and some not-so-great experiences in business. Most importantly I have been able to achieve what I wanted when I initially set out on this journey! Now, my mind has automatically set higher goals and the journey towards those goals is ongoing!
Meanwhile, I have now built a profitable, creative business from the bottom up – no bank loans, no family or friend investments and to be frank, very little moral support. I am living proof that even with very little resources and support, you can build your dreams if you really want to. The initial journey was a very difficult one and required much persistence, among many other qualities that I will be sharing gradually, but long story short, I have built a business that allows me to not only live well without the need of a 9-5, but to invest in new ideas and to enjoy a quality of life that I couldn’t previously.
Building this business has positively impacted my life in so many ways. Since starting, I have met my life partner. We met overseas and I was able to spend a year abroad after we got married, while my business was still running here in the UK. I have also since had a child and my business affords me the time to spend with him, without having to work around a job that takes up most of my time!
Yes, this brave step has led me to exhale. It has led me to the freedom that we as human beings naturally long for…
