Back in 2011 a fellow proofreader, Liz Broomfield of Libro Editing, launched a “Small Business Chat” feature on her blog, where she interviews a different small business owner every week about why they started their business, how they’ve grown it, where they want it to go and what lessons they’ve learnt along the way.
The idea is that Liz interviews each business owner by email, and then follows up a year later to see how things have changed. I was one of the first to be interviewed, and I’m chuffed to be the first person not only to have a follow up but also a follow up to the follow up! It’s really interesting to look back and see where I was in 2011 and what I wanted to be doing … and what I’m actually doing now. In some ways nothing’s changed, but in other ways everything’s changed!
Anyway, you can read my latest interview here (and the first one here, and the second one here) and if you’d be interested in being interviewed for the feature, I’m sure Liz would love to hear from you!
