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; inter-railing 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
My daughter was born and she ignited a fire in me to succeed that I hadn't felt before
To raise capital for my business at the time, I side lined in a marketing agency helping them manage their social media clients
I started up a mobile cocktail bar company
My business diversified into wedding planning
I started to sell pre-bottled cocktails and started developing them in the wholesale market
I tried and failed to start a 'pop-up' party events business
My son was born and I got married
I made enough in business to hire a team, start outsourcing my work and cross off personal goals that I never thought I'd be able to do.
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
The Social Method was launched
My podcast was developed and The Social method evolved into The Agency.
