How I discovered my Big Idea

This is my diarised weekly learning building a marketing consultancy. What we do is help business leaders tell brand stories that sell. Helping them build compelling marketing through using story.

We started in 2016 but since then have had to dismantle and reestablish this business to make it into my future vision. I know a lot of people struggle to build a business because it’s hard work and sometimes, it’s easy to lose sight of how far we come after the successes and inevitable failures. In this video, I talk about How you can find your BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) How to use your BHAG to drive you I share resources to learn about who you are And that the number one skill that every entrepreneur needs to learn is grit and determination Every Monday I will be sharing my thoughts so please feel free to share your BHAG with me
