Left my job – ✓

Graduated from NEF – ✓

Started a business – ✓

It’s been a long ride. After a long and difficult decision, I found the courage to leave my job. So much has happened I couldn’t possibly try and remember it all, let alone fit it into a blog post. However, all I can say is that if you know you’re not heading the right way, make a fast exit.

I now find myself with my future completely in my own hands, with little stability or certainty. But at least I know I’m heading in the right direction.

Last week I won the second NEF prize for pitching my new business venture, Olive Cooper. We’re creating a new handbag brand for women who want more from their bags. Follow the rest of my journey.
