I HAVE BEEN SO WILDLY ADDICTED AND COMMITTED TO MY BUSINESS DREAMS

...that I once only ate cornflakes for a week so that I could afford to go to a networking event. 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.

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

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

2016

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 put my children through private education

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.

WHERE I AM NOW HASN'T BEEN BORN OUT OF THIN AIR

...and i'm sure your business wasn't an immaculate conception either. Where I am now is the harmony of

my passion

my education

my fascination with human behaviour through my life experiences, failures and successes.
