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.

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 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.
