I am an entrepreneur, Angel investor and founder of the Build Live give.
I escaped corporate after working for Coca-Cola for 18 years. Coke is a brilliant company, but I fell out of love with the product and the impact it was having on people’s health.
See, I have an inherited condition called Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). It is not a life-threatening condition, but one which makes it live whilst working in corporate. Also one of the major causes of kidney disease is type 2 diabetes resulting from lifestyle decisions including too much sugar. Even though my kidney disease was inherited, the irony didn’t sit well with me.
So at the height of my career, it hit me, “I need to take control”
All the stress, travel, busyness and hard work caught up with me. It was time to put myself and my family first.
First 12 months were a delight, but after a while I began to eat into by savings. It wasn’t easy and I lost my confidence.
All the “startup hype” and entrepreneurial communities selling unrealistic expectations of the journey left me feeling frustrated, alone and like I was a failure.
Fast forward 5 years and I got it all together, doing it the hard way. But is doesn’t have to be like that!
I believe in making this journey easier for others and hence why I dedicate my working life to Build Live Give.
One of the biggest lessons i’ve learnt is, just because you want to create something that’s distinctly yours, doesn’t mean you need to do it all alone.
If you want to do all the things you couldn’t do whilst working in corporate, whilst not worrying about money, come join Build Live Give and let us help you build your dream business.Read more
