Global Woman Magazine

I was invited to the Global Woman Magazine's Exclusive Networking Breakfast. It was their second business networking event and was held in Central London last week on Friday 15th April. I wasn't quite sure what to expect but I have to say, it was absolutely brilliant!  

Global Woman & Co

The magazine highlights successful, professional and entrepreneurial women of all cultures and origins, not only living in the UK – but all over the globe. It shines a bright and positive light on their lives and business success and also shows how they have overcome adversity and challenges in their lives leading them to a brighter and happier life.


I've done many nerve-racking things in my time but I have to say, getting up in front of a room full of business women to talk about my company Music Audio Stories at the Global Woman's Magazine offices, has got to be in my top five, most nerve-racking moments of my life! :-D

 Proudly talking about my business Music Audio Stories

I felt so proud of myself because I've had opportunities to pitch in the past (not that this was a pitch, more of an introduction to Music Audio Stories) but I didn't have the nerve for it! That day was my day and now that I've done it once, I know I can do it again.

I met some amazing businesswomen and entrepreneurs and it was truly inspiring listening to their stories and hearing about their businesses. Running a business/company is an amazing experience but there are so many jobs you are doing at once. So many hats that you must wear at the same time, especially when you are also creating the product yourself as I am. It can be overwhelming. So to hear that I am not alone and other women feel the same and are going through the same things as I am makes me feel somehow stronger. I haven't always found other women supportive so this new business world of women, for me, is extraordinary.

I found myself feeling all sorts of things I wasn't expecting to feel that morning. I realised, it's not just about how you run your business, but how you live your life. For the past two years, I've been on a mission with Music Audio Stories but also on a spiritual journey of my own and my life has transformed incredibly. Finally, I feel like everything is coming together for me. I don't need to separate the various areas of my life as I have been doing. It's all me. The more powerful we are as individuals, the more we can give our special talents to the world.

This is what happens when women support each other. See if you can spot me in this video looking very rosy! :-)

It was a great experience and I feel privileged to be part of an amazing group of women making a difference in this world and inspiring others.
