I had thought about working for myself, but it was a fleeting thought that passed very quickly; getting paid to do someone else’s bidding is what I had always done up until that point and besides, I didn’t have the first clue about working for myself. So when I did eventually decide to work for myself starting a business with a friend, Matt to be more precise, just made complete sense; not that we set out thinking we were starting a business, we just tossed around ideas about the possibility of working together, with food, selling it maybe, until one day in early March 2014 we thought ‘what have we got to lose? We can have a bash, create some yummy food, have fun and hopefully get some money for our trouble’; so we did. It has been a long, hard, uphill struggle for the majority of our journey thus far, but I have never considered giving up; that’s the advantage of having a partner – having someone standing next to you egging you on, buoying you up when you don’t have the energy or wherewithal to carry on.
