Every mistake we made in the first 5 years of business. Facebook live Video.

June 14, 2018

Earlier this year I was asked to come and share my experience of starting and running a small business. The event was for people at the very beginning of their entrepreneurial journeys so when I was planning my talk I thought about the type of things I would have wanted to hear at that stage. I knew a timeline story of our highlights and wins wouldn't be very helpful so I took a totally different approach.

I was so nervous because I share very personal experiences and talk at length about our business struggles and difficult times. But thankfully, my honesty seems to have connected with people and I’ve had so much kindness coming my way since sharing this on our social media platforms. Lots of people have said that it was useful and refreshing to hear a real, not sugar-coated start up story 💛

This is the live stream of my talk at City Hall in Belfast. It’s aimed towards people starting a business, but mostly it’s about being brave, embracing failure and our real-life experience.

 

It's about 30mins so if you don't have time to watch now you can save it on FB and watch when you have time. If you think it'd be helpful to anyone you know who's starting out or in the early years of business please feel free to pass this along.
