I’ve never had a proper job. From selling homemade cards when I was 14, working in the film industry, starting one of the first virtual assistant companies and my current work as a life and business coach, for self selected misfit entrepreneurs I’ve always made my own rules.
In my book, Misfit to Maven: From Argh to Ahhh, I openly and candidly talk about my unusual journey from Misfit to Maven, from hard working outsider to smarter working financially stable Maven and Entrepreneur.
But is my journey unique?
Whilst it has certainly been more sex, drugs, and misadventure than others, elements of my story are actually shared by many.
To celebrate the launch of my book, Misfit to Maven, I interviewed a series of Misfit Entrepreneurs about their journey and I hope that our conversations inspire and empower you to move from ARGH to AHHH in your own business and life!
