Thanks Bridgid, wise words. It has been interesting to discover what things from my previous career and experience in it are useful to my new journey, and what skills are missing. Some aspects of my experience sometimes actually feel like a hindrance in this new landscape!
I have taken a lot of my self-awareness and aptitude learning from years in a corporate setting to guide me through some key decisions about how my new business could run and what sort of complementary skill sets I am looking for. It is a invaluable for not repeating mistakes and for working as quickly as possible.
Thanks very much for your response!
