Be scared. Be brave. Make a decision. Get on with it

In my last article I wrote about starting with one idea, and ending up moving in a very different direction. I was already working via Vetta Business Services and had begun to pull together my prospective client list along with the product and service offerings. It was a relatively low risk business, combining consultancy and developing on line services. However, the outcome from my initial client research meant that Company Connecting now had its claws into me. It certainly wasn’t safe. It was going to take a huge amount of effort. Money could be an issue …….BUT……. it was a lot more exciting!  Potentially mad, bad and dangerous.

I have worked in IT, Oil & Gas and more recently the space sectors most of my working life. I have experienced my fair share of discrimination, bad behaviour and being ignored in my career. I learned to deal with most situations, and thought that such behaviour was relegated to the past. There has certainly been a marked change since the 1980s. We must also remember that women can be equally cruel to men, it just doesn’t happen so often.

When I started Company Connecting, I never thought of it as a ‘Start up’. I had several ideas for a business and key for me was to be independent and live up to my new motto ‘Life is too short to work for someone else’.
