This week’s been pretty good- secured investment at the #pitchitwales final, and had another investor offer £50k... funding round 2/3 done! After a year of no salary and hard work getting this business going feels amazing! #bethespark #businesswales #xforces #armedforcesveteran #rafveteran #mumboss #entreprenuer #mumpreneur #toddle #wrexhamenterprisehub
Thank you to all our followers so far! We’re lucky to have a tribe coming with us on this journey, and with £100,000 secured in investment this week the journey’s just about to become that much more exciting! #xforces #toddle #mumboss #businesswales #entrepreneur #enterprisenation
It’s been an amazing week! This lady hugging me is Hayley Parsons, she set up GoCompare. The man in the photo is usually wearing a moustache and singing in her adverts... I secured £50k as part of the #pitchitwales competition, and I don’t think I’ve stopped smiling since. Thank you @helenmelyn for being my cheerleader on the day! #businesswales #xforces #armedforcesveteran #bethespark #pitchitwales #welshbusiness #wrexhamenterprisehub #enterprisenation #entrepreneur #mumboss
After dropping son at early breakfast club, driving 2 hours to meet in laws at Hereford train station to hand over baby, finally on the train to Cardiff! thank you to all of you who have sent lovely messages. I’ve been blown away by your kindness and some of the wonderful things you’ve said about me, I shall remember them when I’m walking up on that stage, they’ll make me a few inches taller 🤗 (I know I need more than just a few inches!) thank you to @bendigedig.tomlinson for looking after Eti and penny and nick for taking Christian (and dogs) #toddle #businesswales #bethespark #pitchitwales #pitchperfect #prayfortoddle
Your pitch is interesting mummy, but I’d much rather play with my train.... currently rehearsing to an audience totalling 2 dogs! Only ones still interested... one more sleep till the final! #prayfortoddle #pitchperfect #pitchitwales #welshbusiness #businesswales #toddle #entrepreneur #mumboss #bethespark #cardiffmetropolitanuniversity
Practising my #pitch on my audience. He doesn’t clap much and occasionally chews the products, but we’re having fun! 160 of us applied and 6 of us are in the final in Cardiff tomorrow! Wish us luck 🙏🤞🏻 #pitchperfect #bethespark #businesswales #pitchitwales #cardiffmetropolitanuniversity #entrepreneur #mumboss #babiesofinstagram #investment #toddle #bornwildskincare #welshbusiness
Great meeting with #chesteruni to discuss recruiting interns for #toddle. They also run a work based learning programme in May where students can come and work for Toddle. Excited to tap into this resource of talent! They also let you choose graduate or current student, and which degree they’re studying. #interns #recruiting #bornwildskincare #mumboss #businesswales #entrepreneur #armedforcesveteran
Escaped work to run the #chesterminimarathon with my boy and #mtb round #llandegla forest... I always feel refreshed and full of new ideas when I take little breaks like this. I need to do it more often! Staring at a screen 16 hours a day is not conducive to effective problem solving and innovation! #oneplanetadventure #businesswales #entrepreneur #mumboss #toddle #bornwildskincare #adventureskincare
I applied (with 60 others) for #PitchItWales, a live Dragon’s Den style pitching event in Cardiff in 2 weeks... we got invited (along with 17 others) for a first round (pitch and interview) in Newport last week. I got the call to say I made it to the big final!!! 6 of us will pitch on 17 October, so pleased to have made it when there were so many fantastic businesses, and such strong competition. #businesswales #pitchperfect#toddle #adventureskincare #pitchitwales #bethespark #entreprenuer #mumboss #investment #cardiffmet
This is my nervous but excited face! In the office polishing my pitch for tomorrow. There’s no filter on earth that makes up for  the bags and wrinkles after 6 months of no sleep though! Bring on tomorrow and the next stage of the ‘pitch it Wales’ competition, wish me luck! #bethespark #pitchitwales #newport #enterprisenation #businesswales #toddle #mumboss #entrepreneur #veteran #armedforcesveteran #pitchperfect #raisinginvestment #prayfortoddle
