Showcasing Joy Isaacs from ARgENTUM

Since I started this blog I have been introduced and interviewed lots of entrepreneurial people, mostly women, who have set up and created businesses to showcase their creative side, and offer them a flexibility that the corporate world couldn’t. Todays interview however, is a step in a whole new direction for me and I am beyond excited to be sharing …

Sitting on the front terrace we ordered oysters …

This normally happens to me when I come across people who I have made a major life career change, or those who …

I went from being told (after an un-named child knocked my laptop on the floor) that the hard drive needed to be replaced and everything was gone (which was like a death in the family!!!) to being told a day later ‘actually there was a loose wire, it’s fine come and get it’! (family …

50 designs of Grey
