What a year you've had so far. You started Rock Rose Digital at the beginning of 2018. How are you finding life as a freelancer?
I know it's so cliched to say, but it really has been a roller-coaster. Highs and lows I never thought I'd experience but I wouldn't change it for the world, genuinely love it.
What would you say your biggest challenge has been to date?
Probably not taking things personally. Because you put so much of yourself into your business, especially at start, it's so hard to detach yourself from any negativity or obstacles thrown your way. It's taught me so much strength and resilience - grown some proper lady-balls!
