What's your background and motivation to get into the solopreneur life?
As a keen golfer I started off working at my local golf club, where I soon noticed a severe lack of online presence. From there I started creating fun engaging video content with the staff and golf professionals at the club that were posted on their social media. The videos had such a positive response from the members and created such a buzz, I soon realised how I could turn my hobby into a career as there was such a huge demand out there.
As a business owner, what does success ultimately mean to you?
In life I feel it is so important to put yourself first and not get caught up in unnecessary stress. Natural growth is important and I feel it is paramount not to put too much pressure on yourself. You get out what you put in and I believe having positive attitude plays a key roll in the journey to success.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Owning your own business is incredible as it provides you to work flexible hours and I enjoy the variation. However it can sometimes be hard to keep yourself accountable. That's why it is great having a business partner to work alongside as we can check in on each other.
