Healing from the inside out..

If you read my last blog, you will know what lead me to start LoveRose Lingerie. I’ve always loved lingerie. Before cancer, I was that girl that wore matching sets even under a tracksuit (my lingerie was, and always will be, only for me!). It has the power to help me feel good about myself, gave me a secret confidence, my armour, get me ready for my day, that was all BBC (before breast cancer). I am not going to focus on treatment here - there are lots of informative blogs for that. I want to focus on recovery and specifically the mental health aspect of my recovery. Post-surgery, my scars were healed but my head wasn’t. I certainly never shared openly about the emotional rawness I felt, my

Making business work in an overcrowded market..

Emma founded ExecSpace in 2008 and over the past decade, she has grown it to become Scotland’s leading venue finding agency. “When I came up with the concept of venue finding, I genuinely thought I’d invented the idea! - so I was surprised, after doing some market research, to discover it was actually a massively crowded market place.

Most of my coaching work revolves around helping women manage their careers during the transition into paren

The creativity of being an entrepreneur

I was thrilled to be invited to speak recently at Heriot-Watt’s Edinburgh Business School. Each year, they run an Entrepreneurial and Creativity course as part of their MBA, teaching the theory and practice of becoming an entrepreneur. As part of the course, they invite business owners from all different fields to come and present to the delegates. The idea is to showcase the broad range of industries and types of entrepreneurial businesses that currently exist in the UK and further afield.

Thankfully I passed the course, w
