Number of kids she's juggling: 3
Chloe: What was your main reason for venturing into solopreneurship?
Beth: Although I loved my job as a lawyer, I had a “now or never” moment. It was either styling or nothing! Really the only way to do my styling work was to run my own business. So I guess that really I fell into solopreneurship – but I wouldn’t have it any other way now. The thought of having a boss leaves me cold!
Chloe: What have you found most challenging so far and how did you overcome it?
Beth: Oh golly there are challenges every day. I think that the biggest challenge is being in charge of everything – PR, marketing, finance as well as delivering the service/product on offer! I overcame these (and many other difficulties) by making changes in the way that I saw myself and the way that I approach things. I’ve had to do a lot of work on myself to face my fears and embrace them!
Chloe: What's your most recent 'WIN' and how did it come to fruition?
Beth: My most recent win was writing and launching my course on Instagram. It was such a huge mountain to climb – not the writing of it but learning all the tech things, the branding, the launch, the marketing of it and nurturing people through the course. It was a huge thing to put myself out there but I am a much better person (and business woman) for it!
Beth's path into solopreneurship is a reminder of how there are always mountains to climb, but the feeling of accomplishment once you're at the top is well worth the struggle to get there.
