My Past Before Becoming An Entrepreneur

When I was at school I wanted to be an English Teacher, I loved writing and storytelling, and I was also interested in photography and art.

When I left school I started working in the planning department of the Shropshire County Council as a graphic designer which was a six-month contract. I then found a job at Wolverhampton Borough Council Planning Department doing the same job but it was short-lived as I did not have the passion or drive, so I left to broaden my horizons.

For a whole decade, I felt lost and went from one job to another until I got a job working with a very well-known photography studio in Shrewsbury where my love for photography flourished. Sadly the studio is no longer in existence but I learned a lot along the way.

After that, I found a job working in a holiday resort in Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, where I met my husband and later settled in Cardiff, Wales. After the contract had ended I opened a photography studio where I finally felt I could make my parents proud, especially my father. However, my husband had other plans and wanted me to concentrate on his business venture so I was forced to close my studio and work on marketing and managing his business. Through my knowledge of marketing and building websites, my new career was born.

Then in 2001, my daughter was born and the same year my husband and I divorced.

The rest is history which I will divulge in my book…

My Journey

The Purpose Of This Site

The purpose of this site is to basically have a quick link to my bio and portfolio. It saves time having to list all my sites individually and recite my info. I can simply point people to my virtual business card so to speak.

My Career

I have been self-employed for 30 years. Previously I used to offer services in photography and had my own studio before closing it to support my ex-husband’s business venture. This is when I started to build websites in 1993. I already had experience in marketing so this carried on into my own business.

I have learned a lot on the way of my business journey and am proud to say I am able to wear all the hats. Even though I have disabilities, I can adapt, and it does not stop me from building businesses online. No one is any the wiser if I have a disability unless I tell them. I have a large network of over 11K followers on LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/renata-b-48025811/ I focus on content writing, digital marketing, website design, and domain brokering.

My Journey

My journey has not been an easy one. I have my fair share of health issues as a direct consequence of a few traumatic events that I will one day share including being a victim of domestic violence, and head trauma.

I suffer from Cerebellar Atrophy, Cognitive Impairment, due to head trauma (Diagnosed in 2011), and OCD (germ contamination). I noticed my OCD when I was 23 years of age as a direct consequence of a traumatic event in my life from a relationship breakup. I now document my health online.

“Everyone experiences health issues in one form or another, it could be anxiety, stress, depression, or other physical or mental disabilities. People are not healthy 100% of the time, everyone has problems at some point in their lives”.

“Everyone will experience grief and heartache, at some point in their lives and no one is healthy 100% of the time”.

Through my own story, I hope to help people that have been victims of abuse, that there is hope and a light at the end of the tunnel. Once I am brave enough to open up fully, all will be revealed, as a result, I do not want my past to define me or weigh me down. It will be a chapter that I can finally put to rest. I, therefore, have developed an online health journal to help me heal and document my health and my thoughts for my own recovery.

Everyone has a story to tell, and writing is the strategy for healing, recovery, and moving on”.

I am in the process of writing my autobiography. I will leave no stone unturned and everyone that has been part of my life one way or another will have their five minutes of fame, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

I will talk about the domino effect of people’s actions and the consequences on people’s health and how it has affected me over the years. I will talk about my failures and success. Despite what I have endured over the years, where I have been knocked down and have got up again, resulting in me becoming even stronger.

I am a strong and independent woman, I know what I want and I know how to get it. I try to empower myself every day to pursue my goals and also so I can help and motivate people through what I have learned, to pave their destinies one stepping stone at a time.

Life is what you make it. You either walk the hamster wheel day in, day out, and nothing changes, or you continue finding ways to make your life prosperous. For me, every day is a journey that I soldier on, and each day is one day closer to victory! Do not hold all your eggs in one basket, invent multiple income streams.
