I had my lightbulb moment and I have been developing my business ever since!
Find out how our Free Taster Session gave Kate her lightbulb moment to start her business..
Tell us a little bit about yourself
I’m Kate Hall and I’m a mum of two (a girl and a boy). I previously worked in magazine publishing as a Subscription Marketing manager.
I took a year of maternity leave for both of my kids, and although I loved my job, by the time I came back after my second child, I knew that there wasn’t really a place for me in the company any more.
I had handed over many of my responsibilities to my team, and stepped into a more strategic role, which offered some potential, however when Covid struck I was made redundant.
I took this as the opportunity I needed to finally set up the business that I have always dreamed of.
What made you want to join the Successful Mums Taster Session?
For as long as I can remember I have known that I wanted my own business. My Dad built his business from nothing, so I’ve always felt like it’s in my blood. The Successful Mums taster session was the first step I took. I came across the session through a friend and I knew I had to check it out.
What was your biggest challenge when joining?
My daughter was only three months old at the time and it was the first time I had ever left her for more than 10 minutes! I remember being horribly anxious about leaving her, but also incredibly excited to do something for myself.
What was your biggest take away from the course?
I remember Jane setting a task for us to all think about what we would say to her if she phoned us up in a year’s time. What would we like to be able to say we had achieved in our new business venture?
It had a real impact on me as at the time I didn’t have my business idea, and I felt very unsure about what I wanted. I have since used this technique to think about what I want, and I find it to be a real effective way to zone in on what I should be focusing on.
How would you explain the training to others?
A friendly and supportive session to help you start thinking about what you actually want, the steps to take and how you’re going to achieve this.
What’s next for Kate?
Shortly after attending the session, I had my lightbulb moment and I have been developing the idea ever since!
I’m going to be starting 1 to 1 Business coaching with Jane to help take my business up to the next level and I can’t wait!
My business is called The Full Freezer, and I teach busy parents how to reduce their food waste, and de-stress daily cooking by using their freezers more effectively.
