I have been so wildly addicted and committed to my own business dreams that I once only ate cornflakes for a week so that I could afford to go to a networking event and I have often sacrificed free time, evenings, fun things, hair cuts, new socks and fancy dinners to be able to pursue my own path. So I get it - I get you and I know where you're at and what you need.

get

you

I'm a self confessed life-long entrepreneur and I've always been obsessed with

business for as long as i can remember

But it's not always been sunshine,

Instagram likes and snazzy trousers!

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

born

1989

my parents separated

1997

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. 

1998

2003

2004

2007

2008

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

2010

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

2012

2013

My business diversified into wedding planning

2015

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

2016

In 2016 I tried and failed to start a 'pop-up' party events business

My son was born and I got married

2017

My wedding business was attracting clients through Instagram so I started to advise others on how to do the same thing

2018

@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

2019

The Social Method was launched

2020

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.
