A little about me
A bit of history…… I used to work for a very large market research company before taking a leap of faith and starting my own bespoke shoemaking business.
Going back to college to learn the skills and then everyday after that was a school day…learning and working one to one with customers. The business moulded around what people were wanting. Which was a very different direction to what I had envisaged originally. Looking back, that’s where I think my real interest in people started, what were their needs? that sense of helping make a difference in someone’s life.
Sadly I had to stop shoemaking due to pains in my hands and shoulder but it taught me a lot both in business and relating to people. I turned to a coach to help me get some focus and direction as I was procrastinating and going around in circles until I wore a hole in the carpet! (not literally I might add.The carpet is still intact) What a difference that made!
Latterly, starting and running a mobile drinks business using quirky vehicles (including a vintage bus and milk floats) whilst also comanaging a beautiful independent coffee shop, learning British Sign language and training to be a life coach all at the same time.
I love learning and I love helping people. I also have a very positive and cheerful outlook. I believe if you want something badly enough then there will be a way. I get a massive buzz from helping others feel great about themselves and their achievements.
