So , remember when I said I’d be packing my bag and heading off to Spain .. and I went all fernweh with a million and one Travel quotes and memes ?
Well , about that – Like the BBC opportunity
It’s not going to happen .
There will be no quick getaways .. (not just yet anyway ..)
As, I’m currently tied up with setting up the official launch of the Fruitfull Juice Academy and other behind the screens stuff but hey hey ……
Happy to confirm that I’ll be sending someone on my behalf !
This individual will not only get to enjoy the sunset in Ourense, Spain but will also meet Social Entrepreneurs , network with changemakers across the water .. and learn a thing or 2 about business
In all honesty , I was slightly disappointed that no one looked the gift horse in the mouth .. because the nature of “paying it forward” comes naturally to an entrepreneur when they reach the road less travelled , ” the Flight or Fight theory ” kicks in when adversity rares it head .. call it the law of Entrepreneurship …
“Pay it forward or Pay dearly ” .
With time ticking and the invitation open to immediate RSVP , not one reply to my very public call out .
But a few days , 1 call and a scream down the phone later – one 18 year old will have the opportunity to travel to Spain .. to promote what we do here in the U.K
Maybe it’s because of all the people who unconditionally opened doors for Punch and Juicy in the early years , by giving me the opportunity to break out of the box , or it maybe all the people who restored my faith by pledging towards our Crowdfund LDN campaign or could it be the very special people who bailed me out last year when I found myself in a less than fruitfull situation and about to lose Punch and Juicy (or my mind )
Whatever the case maybe .. the truth is ..
Not sure why I decided to share this with you at 4.44 Am
But it feels good to share these snippets of the Fruitfull journey with you all … Naturally ❤
Wow , just made it before February .
Is it too late to wish a magnificently Fruitfull New Year to one and all .. ?
I didn’t think so 🙂
Hope the Weather is being kind and the threat of Snow storms haven’t put you off of starting/launching a new project ?
So , what’s been happening you wonder ..
2017 started as if the year 2016 hadn’t ended , forgetting to take my entrepreneurial hat off , a sack full of good memories , had me catapulting into the New Year forgetting that everyone else had taken time out in December to celebrate … to rejuvenate …for a reason !
But not me .. I was counting down the days to continue on regardless ..with new allotment key in hand and Gardeners waiting to turn over the soil .. there was no time like the present ..
I even managed to pass my Nutritional therapy course and flew head on into a Child Safety workshop which felt great – until I realised everyone else was still taking the opportunity to either enjoy the last of the Xmas pudding or to burn off last years Turkey .
Blinkers on , noisy notifications switched to mute , I was determined to get all of my to do’s ticked off
I ignored the “What I ate last Xmas pics “, turned down the New Year party invitations , but slowly began to realise , that missing my annual opportunity to mope around in track bottoms and woolly socks – was a big mistake and concluded that I should’ve taken that well deserved break .
Memo to self : Even progress needs a break ( Thanks for the timely reminder Volvo )
The end of 2016 , was also the point when I tried to end a non conducive project partnership which was somewhat challenging to say the least .
I’ve learnt so much about conflict resolution by dealing with it face to face (or should I say via a mass of CC’d messages ) it’s one of those things that no one is really willing to do for you and understandably so – it’s a messy task that makes or breaks an entrepreneur , baring in mind, with all the best intention , some times , there is no resolve , but the lessons therein are life changing .
I got the call that a close friend had passed away – and that’s when the Lull began ..
The Social media posts became sporadic , I had started to ignore phone calls and became aware that the texts always started with “Can you ” rather than “How are you ”
I was upset and didn’t know how to deal with the news (writing another reference was the last thing on my mind .. )
Although I found some solace in the beauty full voice of Lizz Wright whose songs became my Lullaby’s
I still feel a little sensitive , but a whole lot wiser .
Simple thoughts of a Social Entrepreneur
Many entrepreneurs forget to stay human in the endeavor to build a successful enterprise and inevitably our family and personal lives are sacrificed – which in turn becomes detrimental to our overall growth .
This realisation has forced me to seek out ways to stay grounded as well as gain some work/life momentum in 2017 if not a little more selective about who and what I collaborate on/with . .
So , I’m pretty thankful about being chosen to take part in an entrepreneurial exchange in Spain .. fingers crossed , all goes well – I’ll be away for a week networking with and speaking to international change makers .
Not to worry , you won’t miss out …
I’ll be updating the blog throughout the next fortnight until I handover to our new Social Media Assistant , so do keep popping in to see our new menu , find out about our new workshops or just to say Hi
Over and out ….
See you in February ; )
So – here we are , on our 3rd opportunity for the next fortnight . As you may know we’ve been on the look out for a few new team members to join us on our #FruitfullJourney .
We’re about to embark on our very first Official Fruitfull Juice Academy programme in 2017 ( in under 7 weeks to be exact ) –
Teaching young people how to grow their own food , make tasty smoothies and hopefully set up their own bar’s around London !!
But it all kicks off in Brent ! I’m not allowed to reveal too much at the moment … but we’ll be popping up in schools across the borough raising awareness about the benefits of healthy drinking … ( and I hope to start in an area that holds a lot of memories for me ! )
This seemed like a very small project when we piloted earlier in the year , but the magnitude has sincerely shone light on all the little bits that were missing …
A matter of a few more people and a lot more skills will be required and in all honesty there’s a little too much I and not enough WE ….
So yes , without further ado – for those of you interested , please welcome Opportunity Number 3 !
This role is an amazing one , I’m looking for someone who can cross the T’s and who knows where an apostrophe should be (Thanks David – your observation has been duly noted )
Not only will you be the foundation of all our forthcoming communication with all the mover’s and shaker’s – you’re going to be the first point of call when an enquiry comes in , you’ll have the opportunity to meet some fantastic people and help to create a Virtual Office , AND you’ll be one of the first to taste our new menu 🙂
We hope to fill this role by Friday 16th December 2016 – PLEASE SHARE or apply at email@example.com
For all of you wondering what’s happening with the Juice and Smoothies ,
I’ll be honest – I’ve skipped a few in the last few weeks – but have started to create a tasty Butternut Squash , Swede and split pea soup – the perfect Winter Warmer seasoned with Mustard Seeds and Cumin , which has also doubled up as a gorgeous mash !
( P.s My current food on the go favourite is Bananas and Cashew Nuts , just in case you what a simple and quick snack )
Over and Out Juicilicious ones x
