I am an author, blogger and speaker who is passionate about helping people save money in eco-friendly ways. One of the key ways in which I do this, is to provide tips and tricks on how to reduce waste. Reducing waste is a win-win. It doesn't cost you anything to waste less and it saves you money and is better for the environment.
I spent 10 years in the NHS as an Internal Auditor. During that time I became a Chartered Member of the Institute of Internal Auditors and I gained an MSc in Audit, Management and Consultancy. After having children I decided that I wanted to quit my day job to be a stay at home mum. But how could we afford to live off less, when we had more expenses with kids and having recently moved to a bigger house? Also I liked spending extra on eco-friendly and organic products. I set myself the challenge of being able to save enough money in eco-friendly ways to quit my job. A year later I succeeded and walked away from my career. I started up my blog to document my experiences and have been blogging on the subject ever since. Now I am also an author and a speaker.
Do something that you are passionate about, that there is also a business case for. Your passion will keep you going through the hard times and the business case will mean that you can make money from your business too.
