More than a side hustle – The journey from Corporate to Entrepreneur (and all the trials and tribulations in between)

In this session Vanessa Vallely OBE talks about the importance of having a side hustle. Nothing in life is predictable, the pandemic showed us that! We all need different sources of income. So what could your side hustle be? How could you start building the foundations of your business whilst still at work? In this session Vanessa shares her own story of starting her side hustle and how that “hobby business” eventually became a very successful day job. Vanessa will also share her journey, the mistakes she made thinking she had the experience to “entrepreneur”, and her top tips for building a business whilst you are still at work.
