Grief is the price we pay for love

This week has been one of mixed emotions, that’s for sure. The very real sadness I have felt due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday, has really surprised me. I was as shocked and saddened as everyone else, on hearing the news on Thursday afternoon that the palace were assembling the Royal… Continue reading Grief is the price we pay for love

A beautiful Indian wedding, new branding and our first photoshoot…

Another busy few weeks at Luna HQ; I can’t quite believe we’ve already had a week of August, as it means the launch of the app (and the London Marathon!) is edging ever closer. When Jas and I started Luna, we did absolutely everything ourselves (and still do, mostly). However, one thing we wanted to… Continue reading A beautiful Indian wedding, new branding and our first photoshoot…

A big week for Luna and back to thirty mile weeks…

Wow. What a week. I get to scratch off a new square on my entrepreneurship poster! It feels like so much has happened this week! I can’t actually believe the crazy 40 degree heatwave was earlier this week, as it genuinely feels ages ago already. We celebrated Jas’ birthday, welcomed new team members and injured… Continue reading A big week for Luna and back to thirty mile weeks…

Two school visits and training getting back on track

Saturday morning run views Despite the searing temperatures this week, the marathon training is slowly getting back on track. It helps that I’ve started going for 0530am runs before it gets too warm. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still pretty warm even at that hour, so I’m unsure how this week is going to go… Continue reading Two school visits and training getting back on track

Feeling stressed but grateful

I’ve spent my weekend in a battle with my laptop, Google Workspace and my sanity… Google is currently winning. Who knew data migration was so stressful?! I can’t remember a more stressful week back after holiday; Jas did a brilliant job steering the ship whilst I was away, so I’m so grateful for her but… Continue reading Feeling stressed but grateful

Second half-marathon in the bag and some more cheques (nearly) in the bank…

I didn’t manage to blog last weekend, as I was back in Yorkshire running the Doncaster CITY half marathon. (Yes, city, you read that correctly) My second half-marathon of my year of running for MS-UK. If you are able to sponsor me, it would be so appreciated - thank you https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jo-goodall30 It definitely went better… Continue reading Second half-marathon in the bag and some more cheques (nearly) in the bank…

It’s been a while…

I am back, after a two week hiatus. It’s been an interesting time; it’s true what everyone says about raising investment. It’s hard and it takes a long time… For the past two Sundays I really either a) didn’t feel inspired to write a blog post because I was too tired and/or emotionally exhausted or… Continue reading It’s been a while…

Manifesting term sheets and filming fun recruitment videos…

It feels like we’ve made a lot of progress this week 🎉 and it’s been one of the busiest yet. Sunday long run Monday started with lots more emailing and seed planting, in terms of our investment round. I was specifically targeting “Angel” investors and “Angel” groups, and it was literally all I did all… Continue reading Manifesting term sheets and filming fun recruitment videos…

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!!
