Sharing the challenges and stories of fellow business owners! 

Jun 17, 2018

Holly is a video marketer (which was a lot easier for me to say than videographer!), she's been running her business for approximately 3 years and has really found her niche as her business has grown and evolved over this time.  
Holly wasn't sure what she wanted to do after leaving university and after attending a talk for people just like her, met someone from Prince's Trust which ultimately led to her joining one of their programmes, getting funding from them and starting her journey running her own business.
Holly's warm personality and understanding of how it feels to be in front of the camera makes it easy for her clients to open up to her.
