Day 24 - Achievements
My greatest achievement has to be my lovely family 👨👩👧👦 Whilst I always wanted to be an artist, it is equally important to me to be around and available while my kids are little. Being self-employed gives me the flexibility to work around my children's needs. Like any working Mum, the juggle is sometimes exhausting and overwhelming, but at least I know I won't look back and feel like I missed out on their early years.
Setting up and building my business with very small children is also something to be acknowledged and I'm super proud of that!
My greatest professional achievements to date have been exhibiting in Mayfair, being profitable in every year trading (no starving artist here), trending on Twitter in fourth place back in 2014 and being featured in a recent eCatalogue by the Department for International Trade.
