Two years ago I got a phone call from my pal, Cat. She’d just found out that she was being made redundant from her job in digital marketing. As anyone would be after hearing such news, Cat was feeling pretty scared at the prospect of having no job, but she was also kind of optimistic too. She’d been spending all her spare time on her web design side hustle and dreamt of becoming her own boss and pursuing her passion full-time. Although the situation wasn’t ideal and it would have been less stressful had she left on her own terms, in a way, this gave her the push she needed to take the leap.
Since then, Cat’s launched her own branding and website design business, Gatto. She designed my website, did tons of amazing branding work for me, and has been such an amazing help over the last few years. Every so often I’ll send her a desperate Whatsapp message begging for WordPress help and within a matter of minutes, she’ll have used her infinite coding wisdom to fix it. Not only has she done amazing work for me, she’s also created websites for the likes of Megan Ellaby, Callie Thorpe, Lydia May and so many more amazing bloggers.
Inspired by her own transition from employee to business owner, Cat recently decided to start her own podcast, The Creative Leap. She’s already interviewed Megan Ellaby and Lola Hoad, so subscribe to her podcast now and prepare to be inspired!
You can listen to the podcast on The Creative Leap website, download it on iTunes, or find it on Podcast Addict.
