If you don’t know me, I’m a Profit First Professional.
This is because I have worked for years as a software developer; as a freelancer, running an agency and doing the startup thing where I spent hundreds of thousands of pounds of other people’s money.
And throughout that time, I totally ran myself into the ground. Stupid long hours. Working on holiday. Never being fully present for my family. Nothing terrible happened but I wasn’t who I wanted to be.
So when I discovered Profit First it made a huge difference to my life. It rebalanced things and made me put the important stuff first. And when they asked if I wanted to work with them and guide others through the process, I jumped at the chance.
I hear, from friends, from connections, from women around the world, how there are structural barriers preventing them from being heard, from making progress, from making a difference. And it’s unfair and I kept thinking one day I’ll do something about that. Then I thought “screw one day, I can do something today”. So I choose to help women in tech build their own successful businesses and just bypass those barriers.
So that’s how I got here; I know tech and I’m in a position to make a difference.
