One Piece Of Advice To My Younger Self

  • When I launched my t-shirt company, I spent more time designing and printing fancy business cards, rather than designing t-shirts that actually looked good.
  • At Huuno, rather than knuckling down and pushing out an MVP, I read TechCrunch and ‘networked’.
  • At Servu, I spent countless hours applying to accelerators and pitching investors, rather than running deliveries to flatmates & proving my concept.
  • At Bristlebox, I was more interested in making my website look beautiful & driving Instagram followers, rather than learning how to run FB ads (oh, what a wasted opportunity in 2016!)
