This month I was absolutely thrilled when Go Girl Entrepreneur asked me to contribute as a guest blogger! It coincided perfectly with the launch of my brand new logo – but it also provided me with a lovely opportunity to fully reflect upon my journey as a business owner, from feeling trapped in the 9-5 to being free to work all over the world, doing what I love.
Go Girl Entrepreneur is an inspiring, motivational platform for female business owners that provides expert insights, support and resources to women everywhere at all stages of self-employment – from those just turning their dreams into reality to seasoned professionals. The website and courses offered are bright, positive and encouraging – just what budding entrepreneurs need to flourish, grow and feel excited about their new venture! Founder Michelle knows first-hand how challenging setting up and running a business single-handedly can be – so the movement focuses on tackling the fears and anxieties that often hold us back.
What’s the blog about?
The brief was really open – but after following Go Girl Entrepreneur on Instagram for some time I knew exactly what I wanted to talk about. I was especially keen to share my perspective on setting up in business for the first time – as somebody who took the plunge at a young age without any direction, experience or guidance. I always thought that I needed lots of money, a detailed strategy and a business plan to succeed. But actually I found that the key being successful is harnessing the qualities you already possess within yourself – some of which you may not even realise are positive. Whether you’re setting up in business yourself or just fancy learning a little more about my journey, I hope you find the blog interesting and inspiring!
