The So You Know Blog

Posts Tagged ‘networking

My reason for writing this blog was to chart the experiences I have had as a disabled entrepreneur both prior to and during starting up Lovely Gorgeous Things.  Writing about the experience had been roaming around in my head for some time as during the start-up process, I kept hitting problems, some of which were unnecessary and avoidable, well, they would have been if I had been able to access certain, specific information as well as being better informed about how the process really works and what support is available as a lot of it isn’t widely known about and you don’t always know where to even start looking.

Sooooo, I am putting out a call to you guys to let me know about your experiences of Permitted Work, Test Trading and any other schemes that have allowed you to start a business.  Tell me about any information that you think would be helpful to both current and future Disabled Entrepreneurs, this might include:  support organisations in your area, mentoring schemes, training providers, networking opportunities and any and everything else.

I would also love to hear about other Disabled Entrepreneurs!  If you have managed to go through the system and successfully started your business (private, social enterprise etc) then I wanna hear from you!  Lets create a space where information flows freely and is no longer hidden away on random notice boards which few ever get to see.

Send your stories, useful info or even a good joke to me at

Hiya, it’s me again  lol  I figured a good way to kick off the blog would be to share a little bit about me and what I do.

I am a thirty-something lass born and raised here in London, England.  I am currently juggling a number of chronic medical conditions (Endometriosis, EDS, Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia and a few others that help things stay entertaining 🙂

Along-side managing my medical conditions, I also run my skincare  brand – Lovely Gorgeous Things, which supplies some rather yummy, skin friendly products (if I do say so myself  lol).

Getting the business off the ground involved some serious blood, sweat, tears and tons of advice and support from some amazingly wonderful people.  There are too many to list (and with my foggy brain, I’ll probably end up leaving someone important off by accident), so instead I will say that you know who you are and I  will be eternally grateful for everything that you have done xx
