A learning journey

Updated: Jun 3, 2021

April marks my 3 year Business Birthday. THREE YEARS!

This time three years ago I launched my website and set out my stall on a handful of social media platforms.

I had no idea whether I had what it took to be self-employed, or what to expect, but I wanted a way to earn a living on my own terms, working the hours that suited us as a family.

One thing is for sure, I would never have predicted this journey. All the wonderful people I've met, the new skills I've learnt, the amazing opportunities and a couple of big pivots.

It hasn't always been easy, especially through a pandemic, but I've always been determined to make this work.

The most important lesson for me has been learning to adapt. Even if you're not directly involved in the digital world, there's no doubt that technology has played a huge role in changes in all industries. These changes mean that as an entrepreneur, you have to get used change.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with some fantastic clients, helping them sell their courses and webinars, reach more people and grow their business is hugely rewarding.

Thank you to everyone that has put their trust in me and become a client. You are all amazing and have made my journey such a joy.

2020 was full of change for social media too. Every other day there were platform updates on Facebook, Instagram and Linkedin, there was a continuous stream of new features to learn. This was topped off by Apple's iOS14 update toward the end of the year which marked one of the biggest shifts in digital advertising in a decade.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I love helping people and my aim is to help your business thrive. That’s why I’m so excited specialise in social media advertising, Facebook ads are one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways of scaling your business.

This “job” has given me an identity, a purpose and a daily sense of achievement. It fills me up, it makes me happy and the best part is that it never feels like work.

When you choose to change with the times and take advantage of new opportunities in your industry, it's possible to grow and develop your business.
