My adventure….a year on (1)

As business starts to quieten down and we are approaching the end of our season, I can finally start to reflect on my first year in business. It was September last year that I made that big decision to ‘give my idea a go’. I’m sure business guru’s will cringe at my terminology but that’s exactly how I felt at the time. It’s not an easy decision to make, there is so much at stake but I knew I had to give it a good go…..it just felt right. Plus there’s that Ol’ cliche “if I don’t do it now, I never will…”. It’s hard to describe the feelings, thoughts and emotions you go through making the decision to start a new business, especially when it’s such a new concept. Just because I liked the idea doesn’t mean that others will but I really believed in it and I think that’s the drive you need […]

Goldfish to a Dragon

I’ve never really won anything before, except a goldfish at the fairground when I was a little girl! So when @marginsholidays was announced as a winner by Theo Pathitis at the end of February on Twitter, I was absolutely gobsmacked. I only started embracing Social Media at the end of 2016 when we launched our website and started the promotion and marketing of MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays. I have to confess I didn’t even know what a # meant! But I got my head down and started to learn. It was at a networking event in Norwich that I met a lovely lady from Agent Shave. They had only launched their business a few weeks before as well. She was over the moon as Agent Shave had just become winners of the Theo Pathitis Small Business Sunday #SBS competition on Twitter and she thought this was something MarGins should do to gain followers and support […]

My adventure…..

We’re now into the middle of January, the first few weeks have flown by and MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays is into its second month of business.               Last week we welcomed our very first MarGins guests to the wonderful Norfolk Coast. We arranged a bespoke package for them to walk from Hunstanton to Cley-next-the-Sea over 3 days with their dog. Our guests were sisters wanting to share some quality time together as they both live opposite sides of the world and only had a short time together in the UK, so there were high expectations of the service from MarGins and the Norfolk Coastline….in January! No pressure! But, it couldn’t have gone any better. They fell in love with the Norfolk Coast! My heart skipped a beat when one of the sisters said “I think I’ve found my spiritual home, this has been the highlight of my trip […]
