I am absolutely delighted to be featured in the current ‘Women In Business’ feature of Gossip Magazine, the fashion & lifestyle ‘go to’ for the North East of England.
Gossip UK is run by the fabulous Julie Connaughton, who seems to have an endless pit of energy! Not only has she been running the hugely successful Gossip Magazine for over 2 years now, but also raises money through events mainly for children who need support in illness or disability as well as the homeless and poverty stricken – in fact she’s about to venture on a ‘sleep out’ during May to raise funds to support local causes.
The magazine itself has around 13,500 copies printed each month and is circulated within the Tees Valley area of the North East, with a readership that spans a wide spectrum of ages, family status and affluence as well as businesses.
Gossip features fashion and ‘on fleek’ trends (the new ‘word on the street’ according to my nephew!) as well as promoting local businesses to the North East. The core of the magazine, however, is centered around promoting Women In Business from all areas of expertise and experience – a great way for others to hear how businesses have been created as well as what’s on offer.
I was so pleased to be asked by Julie to contribute and hope that my story has helped others realise that we can all live our dreams, if we really put our minds to it!
