  • About

    Hi, my name's Claire.

    In July 2016, at the age of 34, I quit my career in the corporate world and started my own business.


    I decided to document my journey from corporate employee to entrepreneur in my blog.


    If you're an aspiring entrepreneur, I hope you will find some thoughts and insights that will help you on your way. If you're considering making the life-changing decision to go solo and start something up, I hope that reading some of my learnings will give you the confidence that you too have what it takes.


    Make no mistake: this is no silicon-valley masterclass in how to build a startup. This is how a very, very ordinary person goes from employee to entrepreneur. You'll find all the nitty-gritty details, all the pain, all the self-doubt, and all the setbacks, right here.
