Breckland Orchard is Three! Yipeeeee
My feelings change – on one hand it doesn’t feel brand-new, but at the same time three years in the life of a new brand and a new business is nothing at all! I am loving the challenges and the pure enjoyment that comes from running your own business.
I had 17 years working in corporate life before I started my own venture. Hand on heart I always believed I would be a corporate girl till the end, but it was the arrival of my two little ones that made me realise that it was impossible to do it all. I admire everyone in corporate life who can combine a career with being a good parent – its hard…..very very hard.
For me it was the right choice to start my own business, but it was also more than a little scary. I had no experience of running my own business……………and looking back I have no idea where I got the courage to resign my nice safe job [that I loved] and go it alone. There was just an inner belief and a steely determination that kicked in and kind of took over my usually safe mindset. One minute I was a corporate bunny the next I was a food entrepreneur……..and thankfully I’ve never one looked back nor regretted starting out.
The result 3 years later is that Breckland Orchard is up and running – and given that a large percentage of new businesses fail within the first three years it feels like a good milestone to have reached.
For everyone who’s supported and cheered my along the way over the past three years – Thank you x
