Welcome to my blog page

 a growing library of inspiring & helpful career change & job love stories.  I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have!

"Sometimes, the only option is to move on but there are jobs in my past where I know now that I could have developed internally if I’d talked about it with my manager." 

With a love of Marketing from the beginning, Emma gives us a real glimpse into that world and the variety it offers.  She tells us honestly about her journey and I think highlights why sometimes working for someone else gives you more freedom than having your own business.  Emma shares some really valuable insights, reflections and advice.  This is such a lovely and very honest read, I really felt like I was on the journey with Emma when I was reading it.  Enjoy!

“I feel more in control of my life.  I get an enormous amount of job satisfaction and feel like I’m really making a difference." 

From HR to Counselling, Julie's story shows both pragmatism and bravery!  In her successful HR career, she says there was "never a dull moment!"  But personal circumstances gave way to a new perspective when Julie sadly experienced more than one loss in her life - "I know it’s a cliché but it made me reprioritise my life."

“I have always wanted to have my own business, even from a young age.  We used to have a bit of a family joke about what my next business idea would be, as I was constantly coming up with something new!” 

From a 3 year “uni stopgap” in animal welfare & a brief stint in debt collection, to HR and starting her own product based business (all while raising 3 small children), I’m delighted to introduce Charlie!  Charlie’s story is honest, inspiring and incredibly humble.  

"Be open to any opportunity that you hear about, as you never know where it may lead."
