Busyness in Business

WEEDS OF BUSINESS SUCCESS

Being a business owner can be hard work. I know it’s easy for people to look at entrepreneurs and feel like we’ve got it sorted. Freedom. Choice. Flexibility.

RED

I’m a little superstitious about the colour red. Perhaps it’s my Welsh roots. Or the rebel in me. My birthstone is Ruby, which was also my mum’s birthstone.

STRENGTH

I remember the first time I had a panic attack. It was 1998 and I was at the cinema with my then-boyfriend, watching Gladiator. I had lost my parents (cancer/heart attack) very suddenly in the previous year but I had been busily putting on a coping/ brave persona in order to survive. Fake it till I make … Continue reading…
