There have been several occasions when my business was on its knees through making mistakes and bad decisions. Being a single mother raising 3 children without support is a great motivator to keep the show on the road and each time I managed to prevent the business for going under, I emerged from the wreckage with a new skill that I could use to make the business stronger. Today I am equally as passionate about the business activity as designing my collections.
With my children all left school, I undertook the KPI programme to stretch myself even further and apart from everything that I have learned, I find myself growing within the KPI community and am passionate about giving to the conversation, building relationships and connecting people. I have been among the top most engaged people in the community since I started my KPI24 journey.
Last week, I was delighted to be invited as a founder advisor for the soon to be launched Advisor.FM which is the brainchild of a KPI25 participant. My narrow focus is on startups, offering advise on all the things I learned the hard way and helping them to achieve faster growth as a result.
I would love to be involved in the judging of the start up category of The Business Book Awards. And while it is neither here nor there, I have just finished building ( with my own hands) a library that has been on my ( and my kids) wishlist for the last 10 years.
