So here's how it happened, how I got from there to now and how my life has always been intertwined with my endless pursuit of business
my parents separated
I ran away from home and was homeless and lived in a homeless hostel at the age of 17
I went traveling around Europe; interrailing in my gap year like every late-teen something did.
I started to sell my old toys on my front doorstep to make my own pocket money
I put on a talent show and sold tickets to people at my school for a profit
I used to make money by going door to door in my village selling raffle tickets for prizes that I would buy with the money I made from the sales
I made the money for my travels by freelancing as many jobs as I could and helping my homeless friends with their *not so legal* business escapades
I started University and studied Business; Marketing & Psychology
I started up a mobile cocktail bar company
My daughter was born and she ignited a fire in me to succeed that I hadn't felt before
My business diversified into wedding planning
I started to sell pre-bottled cocktails and started developing them in the wholesale market
To raise capital for my business at the time I side lined in a marketing agency helping them manage their social media clients
In 2016 I tried and failed to start a 'pop-up' party events business
My son was born and I got married
My wedding business was attracting clients through Instagram so I started to advise others on how to do the same thing
@designyoursocials was born to continue to advise other small business owners on a larger scale
I made enough in business to hire a team, start outsourcing my work and put my children through private education
The Social Method was launched
My podcast was developed and The Social method evolved into The Agency.
So you see; where I am now hasn't been born out of thin air.
(and I'm guessing your business wasn't an immaculate conception either)
Where I am now is the harmony of my passion, my education and my fascination with human behaviour through my life experiences, failures and successes.
