If you want to dance when it’s raining, sing when everyone is listening, (even though you can’t sing), and laugh at life’s uncertainty, you have met me
Say wow to sunrises and sunsets even though you see them every day. Believe anything is possible for you, even though others tell you to calm down.
Giggle like a child, when others disagree with you.
Be unapologetically you, because you’ve realised you are kind, funny, smart, loving, winning, giving, sometimes loud, always real, always learning, always growing, mostly smiling and excited for what the future holds.
Tell us about your life before the venture/leading up to your venture?
I studied graphic design at Art School and worked as an illustrator in China and the USA then moved into marketing in London. Before my current venture, I was living a jam packed corporate life, out of my house from 7am – 7pm and as a wife and a mum of 2 children, there was never enough time in the day to have any kind of life work balance. Although I loved my work and the community of people, I knew something had to change.
I always have had an entrepreneurial spirit, and was open and curious to new ideas and opportunities, but I had know idea what was about to come my way that would positively and flexibly be the perfect change I needed.

Give a motivational message for the audience/women who are reading this.
Build a life lived to your truest values, grow your voice and confidence so you can share it with others, so they can see what is possible for them too.
Surround yourself with people who are positive and encouraging of you. Who are already where you want to be and who want to take you with them. To lift you higher than you are now.
You deserve to live a happy, purposeful, abundant, fulfilled life. It will need vision. It will need time, it will need belief, it will be hard, it will need purpose, it will need consistency, it will need ambition.
It will need other people. It will need you to change. It will need you to never quit on you. But it will be so much fun and so rewarding, you will never be the same again.
This is the ultimate way to limitless personal freedom.
Stand in your power and shine.
