WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO GO FOR IT AND START YOUR JOURNEY AS AN ENTREPRENEUR?
Having three children under three ended my career working in hostile environments in the Oil and Gas industry and I wanted a better work/life balance. Starting my own company gave me the flexibility I needed and the opportunity to do something that’s potentially life changing for my family.
WHAT IS IT LIKE TO LIVE THE LIFE OF A STARTUP?
It’s a roller coaster for sure. Though the path of an entrepreneur is well travelled, it’s not a smooth ride and you need to keep focused through all the hurdles and believe in yourself.
IF YOU HAVE ON PIECE OF ADVICE TO SOMEONE WHO IS JUST STARTING OUT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
If you need advice, seek it from true experts and don’t rely on the ‘armchair experts’ of Facebook groups. So many people think they’re giving sound advice, but are actually misleading people. It’s worth spending some money getting the correct information as it will potentially save you money in the long run.
