PSST - It’s the last week you can vote in the Northern Blog Awards. If you enjoy my blog/videos I’d LOVE for you to vote for me in the Top Vlogger/Youtuber category. Just follow this link, enter your details and scroll down until you see my name! Of course, you can also vote for every other category, but you don’t have to vote in every one of them. 😃 Please let me know in a comment or tweet me if you vote as I’d love to personally thank you! ❤️

For the first 2 years or so of starting my business, I was pretty much clueless. I could do a gorgeous smokey eye but I had no clients to pay me for said smokey eye! And no idea how to go about booking them. 

It was only when I started to really knuckle down and get geeky about marketing, social media, sales, all that kinda stuff - that I started to improve my confidence and grow a steady client base. 

If I could time travel and tell myself these 5 pieces of advice, I’d have been in a much better position early on! 

I hope this will help any of you who are thinking of starting or recently started a business. I know quite a few of you asked about business topics in my community survey, so I’m excited to chat about it more. Don’t forget to take part in the survey if you want to have YOUR say in future content for KatHorrocks.com!

Love, Kat x
