Jess and the Bee

What cool things have you been doing lately?

I saw your IG post about why you formed this initiative and I grinned!

I have a background in early stage investment and small business support and I also had a blog years back! I wanted to use my platform to promote small businesses products, not the same old brands you see day in day out on the pages of the bigger influencers.

I then wanted to work super local, in Manchester, offering coaching and advice on all things business, making introductions if need be from my network. I do this now through @andthehive

Which girls are doing cool things in your world?

@tangledupinblooms - beautiful florist based in Manchester/Northern Ireland
@mizzbakes - homemade personalised & delicious cupcakes.

What was the last book you read?

Hm... History of Bees, or The Power by Natalie Alderman. (both in holiday so can't remember the order!)

If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Probably Bitter Sweet symphony...or Don't You Forget About Me!

Where can people find you online?

Want to get involved?
