As a fully self-employed marketer, writer and blogger, I couldn’t not apply to be part of the blogging team for Female Entrepreneur Week, which runs during 21st to 28th June 2017. I am honoured to be part of this inspiring initiative, and am helping to spread the word.
Why I Wanted To Get Involved, And A Little Bit More About Me
I decided to become self-employed back in 2014 following being made redundant out of the blue. I had a family to support, a child in nursery full-time and bills to pay, so I took a marketing contract in a top 10 UK university. A couple of days in, and I was hooked on the feeling of not getting sucked into office politics, and loved the fact I was employed to do a job, do it well, get paid and go home. As unsociable as that sounds, I get such a buzz from working on projects, that I don’t always need the social element of a job to get a kick out of it.
Following that contract, I decided to set up my own marketing company, and I’ve been working solidly for clients for 2.5 years now, only taking a 2 month break to have my second child. I also have three blogs, this one, Real Parent, and Real Wedding. I work with many brands, and I also write for many publishers such as, Your Tango, Life Hack and Good Men Project.
