In November I volunteered some time to attend a Global Entrepreneurship Week event organised by Kingston & Richmond Education Business Partnership and Achieving For Children.

With the theme #MakeItHappen, the event offered students a range of talks and resources on ‘Pathways to Self-Employment’. I was one of a few business folks involved in a speed networking session.

I enjoyed sharing my experiences of ditching the corporate world and pursuing a freelance portfolio career as a singer, presenter, event host and voiceover artist. It continues to be an adventure full of ups and downs – and it’s incredibly rewarding, despite the challenges!

The speed networking was a little frustrating because we only had a few minutes with each group but I did meet some fab young people with great ideas and heaps of ambition. Here’s a photo of me chatting to Marion James (BeautyMae) who has created her own YouTube make-up tutorial blog. Go Marion!
