Two weeks of pretending to be on Dragons Den over and over again…

I missed last weeks blog for a couple of reasons; firstly, I was just tired and really didn’t have the energy to relive the week. And secondly, because the week had been really hard and long and I didn’t want to bring those negative vibes! However, I’m back this week: multi-tasking as I ride the… Continue reading Two weeks of pretending to be on Dragons Den over and over again…

Just missing out on a top 10 finish…

Tonight will most definitely be an early night to bed for me! Two reasons why: we’ve had a bumper week of events and meetings, plus today I took part in my first race of 2022, and it went pretty well. As I mentioned last week, we are really focused on raising our first round of… Continue reading Just missing out on a top 10 finish…

A whirlwind week following OSEF…

Somehow we are hurtling towards the middle of March already and I’m not really sure how. This week has been crazy (in a good way!) since OSEF last Friday. The main focus for this week has been two-fold: preparing everything ready for investor conversations; which have started happening sooner than we had planned! And building… Continue reading A whirlwind week following OSEF…

We only went and won it!!

So hands up if you remember reading this last week: “Of course, it would be even better to win the competition but really the prize is just being there and having the opportunity to present to a room of hundreds of people.” Well we only actually did go and win it!! I was going to… Continue reading We only went and won it!!

Did I speak too soon…? Probably…

Thank you for all the concern/messages/love last week when there was no blog post! Last week I really wasn’t feeling well and I was also very tired from the previous week, so I did the sensible thing and actually went home for a couple of days to recuperate. Not really feeling much more rested, I… Continue reading Did I speak too soon…? Probably…

We have an app. On a phone. And working. Omg.

Oh hey 👋 Jas and I agreed in our Friday reflection session that this week has been the first week we have both felt stressed doing Luna. Yes, we’ve been working hard since October on this - all day, most evenings and to be honest, most weekends in one way or another but this week,… Continue reading We have an app. On a phone.

When will I ever talk about anything other than building an app…

…not just yet. Another week goes by, another week spent watching YouTube, learning how to build a no-code app. My week peaked on Friday when I received an email from Adalo (the platform I am using to build the app) congratulating me on unlocking the next level of member status because, I quote, “we see… Continue reading When will I ever talk about anything other than building an app…

Luna balloons and cupcakes for our first event…

Ok so now my head is a little confused; 7:30pm on a Sunday? Monday night? As a creature of habit, this Monday evening blog writing is testing me no end, however, after a day of filming yesterday and returning to my flat at 8:30pm, writing the blog was the last thing on my mind. On… Continue reading Luna balloons and cupcakes for our first event…

Just call me Jeff…

…Bezos, that is. I feel like my last week is how Bezos must have first felt when he started Amazon from his garage; coding away, building his website to buy and sell his books. My whole week has basically been focused on building this “no-code” version of the app. If only this version 0.1 of… Continue reading Just call me Jeff…

Back into the swing of things…

Welcome back to London! It’s funny to think I started the week up in Yorkshire and I’m finishing it down in London. Not unusual, I know. It just feels like this week has lasted forever! I keep seeing that meme about how long January is, but since our Luna planning day on Wednesday, I have… Continue reading Back into the swing of things…
