Starting to blog was quite a nervous happening for me. I worried what people may think of who I thought I was. But I did it and I really enjoyed it. Then I started the Day to day project and the nervousness came back. Tweeting a link to my post every day was the part
Since we found out we were selected to pitch, I’ve found myself getting more and more excited about what this next chapter brings. Today I’ve spent most of my day connecting with people, those I met at the pitch event and also others over the years.
Back in the summer of 2014 I wrote a post for Entrepreneur Academe about the value of being part of a network like Entrepreneur Academe where you meet fellow founders and have access to mentors.

This morning I sat down on one of the priority seats on the tube. Opposite me sat a woman with a ‘baby on board’ badge. On the other side of the pole in the middle of the section I was in, I saw another woman. She also had a ‘Baby on board’ badge and I’m
For my second job in London I chose between a role that mixed project management and information architecture (IA), as we referred to it back then, and pure IA roles. I chose the latter.
Tonight we watched The Martian in the cinema and there is one scene where Matt Damon talks about that all you have to do is tackle one problem at the time. Once you’ve fixed one, you can fix the next and so on.

This morning when I turned on BBC breakfast, they were talking about the just under £60 million jackpot that, after 14 consecutive rollovers has to go tonight.
Yesterday was one of those days when startup life feels like you’re standing at the bottom of a mountain, looking up, up, up and wondering how on earth you’re going to get there before it gets dark. Many moons ago, my oldest friend and I hiked Mt Rinjani on Lombok together with six Swedish guys
