HOW EVERGREEN LIFE CAME ABOUT
I acquired the business back in November 2020 from the original founders and great friends of mine, Jo & Piers.
I’ve been busy behind the scenes learning the ropes and working on sourcing some fresh, new products to add to the current collection, so watch this space!
I was looking for a career change, so one day I signed up for a weekend boot camp introduction into blogging and social media. Whilst I knew at the end of that weekend it wasn't going to be my new career path, I did walk away feeling inspired, invigorated and with a fresh new perspective on life.
Part of the learning from that weekend was to find a mentor, someone I could turn to for advice and guidance. Wreaking my brain, suddenly I had a lightbulb moment and I knew Jo, the founder of Evergreen Life was going to be the perfect choice.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. In a nutshell that’s how the dream to my start my own business and do something I love began to grow. Taking the plunge, I decided to leave the security of my full-time corporate gig to begin a brand new life.
My greatest passion in life is to travel as is to live a beautiful, healthy and eco-friendly lifestyle.
The greatest thing I learned from that weekend boot camp was the importance of changing your mindset. Blind, numb, and feeling a little lost I knew it was time to take a new direction.
Growing up I wasn’t one of those ambitious kids with a big dream to own a business or change the world. As a youngster, I never really knew what I wanted to do with my life. I fell into the corporate world where I worked hard and became successful at over time. After spending almost 13 years at the same company, trying various roles, I no longer felt fulfilled.
One of my biggest motivations for this new journey is my little girl. I want her to grow up, looking up to her mum as a strong role model, feeling empowered and not afraid to follow her dreams. I want to show her that with some hard work, commitment and drive that anything is possible.
Today I’m truly passionate about delivering affordable, high-quality homeware products to you so that together we can end the war on waste. Collectables & gifts that will not only make you feel good, but lighten the carbon footprint on the planet too!
