There are so many reasons I wanted to interview Holly. One she is just a lovely person, so easy to talk to she makes you feel at ease right away. A real asset when she is videoing business owners who aren't necessarily confident about being on camera! Another is her age. I know that might seem politically incorrect, but Holly is 25. I love that she made the decision to not get a job but instead start her own business rather than following a more traditional route! I think it is a real inspiration both to other young people as well as anyone who is thinking of leaving a career and starting their own business.
In our conversation, Holly shares how she came to that decision, who she works with, what she loves about her job. She talks about the loneliness of running your own business, how she relaxes and so much more!
