  The come down.     This is what I call the time after an event, when a mammoth contract is finished or a speaking gig complete.  I have noticed that being self employed is like a rollercoaster. Yes, of course you say, I think we can all agree on this now. The up’s and downs are extreme and can change in any given day. After I have experienced the build up, anticipation and excitement of organising an event (especially) … Read More

Leaving the ladder down

with No Comments

It’s been nearly five years now since the idea of Liked Media birthed from a comfy couch in the lounge one summers evening, wine in hand. I had decided that I didn’t want an office job again that would restrict new found family life and create need for after school care and babysitters after hours. I wanted to stay in alignment with my passion, media, however times where changing and digital media was moving fast. I stumbled upon social media … Read More

No one told me that sometimes my dream of being self employed would back fire and I would daydream about finding a J.O.B!       We spend all this time swept away in the idea of creating our freedom. More money they say, long lunches and do it your way. No more working for the man and stuck in the predictability of the nine to five. Oh, my goodness… nine to five…. can you imagine that!? The truth be … Read More

Putting on my big girl panties!

When it comes to numbers, I get dizzy, feel a bit sick and then feel like I have been hit by a bus. Seriously. I am a words girl through and through and to me, the cruelest thing you could ever to me is sit me down and run me through some figures. This is why I invest in a very understanding bookkeeper. It is like my brain switches off, the same way it has to in the middle of a … Read More

How do I do it?

with No Comments

I’m often asked, how do I do it? Unsure of what “it” is, I presume juggling work and family life, maybe fitting in all that I do.
