So, I've been very lacking in keeping up with my blog what with trying to make, design, promote, sell and generally making enough cash to keep things running. So it to no surprise that some things have had to fall way-side. However, I'm finally ticking a few more boxes and have more time to get things done.
This time last year I was still working and baristaring part-time at the amazing Workhouse Cafe in Bristol, where I had worked for the last 4 years pretty much since its opening day.
(If you follow me on Instagram, you will be highly aware of my obsession with great coffee and food, so it made sense that before opening my business, I'd worked in the catering industry for the last 10 years.)
In being part of this growing independent business on a part-time basis, and with such an incredible and understanding boss, I was able to slowly and steadily grow my business into what it is today, and last May I made the solid decision of stepping away from my part-time paid work and embrace self employment 100%...!
I actually think that had I not had such an understanding boss, who had my back and as much positive energy to bounce off of, then this natural progression would have taken a hell of a lot longer. I believe that through self-determination, hard graft, working with and meeting like-minded people and generally being a nice person, you can go a long long way. So with Spring in the air and approaching a year of being fully self-employed and with a new collection of work coming out, I count myself very fortunate in making it thus far.
I thank each and everyone of you who have been with me every step of the way and look forward to seeing what this next year will bring...
- THANK YOU...!
