Black And White
I love the simplicity of black and white.
This dress was just £10 in the Wallis sale and I have worn it twice in the last two weeks.
Although it is a summer dress there are so many possibilities for the winter too.
Today was a very long day.
After a day working in the prison I had to race home and get changed before dashing out to Liverpool city centre for the monthly Train 2000 PR Workshop I lead.
I have said it before but I'll say it again.
I love working for Train 2000.
Founded in Liverpool in 1996, Train 2000 is a social enterprise which offers free support, advice and training to help women make the move into self-employment.
If it wasn't for Train 2000 I would never have had the courage to leave a staff job and pursue a freelance career.
I have had so many wonderful experiences since I became self-employed.
Being your own boss can be very scary but Train 2000 made sure I was well prepared and able to adapt.
They asked me back to present a PR workshop - coaching small business owners how to do their own PR.
Last night I worked with a marketing manager, wedding planner, personal fitness trainer, Stag and Hen Night organiser and the owner of a dance studio.
All of these women had wonderful tales to tell about their journey into self-employment and if I can, in my own very small way, help their businesses to be a success then what better job could you wish for?
