This time last year I was feeling shell shocked -professionally speaking. I’d built up my fashion PR agency over ten years, merged with another business and after 18 months decided to leave. I’d been mentally & emotionally swamped for way too long and needed to find myself again.
Over the last 12 months I’ve experienced a fun and fascinating mini paradigm career shift. I became an employee and worked for a leading communication agency for six months. At the same time I set up The F club with Jane, became a guest lecturer at Leeds Beckett University and have collaborated with some inspiring leaders in the PR game.
But I didn’t see much of the family who were living off ready-meals! So I decided to focus on working direct with brands which has led me to re-launch my website and start the new MLPR business – because – hey I love the entrepreneurial thrill. It’s exciting and full of possibilities.
Key to this new venture is Instagram which I’ve become so fascinated with – check out my MrsMLMode account (do follow me!) I’ve been retraining and am launching an Instagram marketing service too.
Looking back now over the year, I can’t help but ponder on the journey of life. So often I’ve sought new adventures, new horizons and some time later, have end-up in a similar place from where I’ve started! What is that about?
Anyway at the moment it feels good!
