Reality isn't about high-heels and dresses!
But 95% of the time I look very different. Setting up a micro-food-enterprise is about blood, tears and hard work – getting up early, working till your muscles ache and in my case, shifting a lot of boxes around! The boxes weigh 6.6kg, and I generally shift 2 of them at a time. That’s over 13kg, which most people in the gym would feel proud to lift ….let alone for long stretches at a time! And you don’t do that in high-heels!
I have been abusing my poor big toe over the past few weeks, and have dropped a couple of rolls of pallet wrap on it. The bruising has subsided, and now the toe nail has decided to give up the ghost and fall off. Call it an industrial accident………..but I think of it as a reminder that businesses work by hard work, not by thinking of abstract concepts to bring to market!
I’ve worked really hard these first couple of years at setting up Breckland Orchard – the team is expanding [slowly] and maybe I won’t have to shift quite so many boxes and bottles in the future. ……maybe my big toe will thank me for it [I hope so].
So I don’t always wear high heels and dresses [honest!]
