How I got fired from my first job (and what you can learn from it)

advice, work, school, fashion, jobs, internships, careers

I remember just before I turned sixteen, my parents called me downstairs to let me know that my national insurance card/number had arrived, and with the official notice now from the government that I could go out and start working, I decided it was time to start earning the Ps. That summer, I threw together a CV and started dropping it into every job application I could find – from Next, to New Look, to Superdrug, to Boots – I let them all know that I had officially arrived. I figured – how hard could it be? I had gotten my GCSE results, achieved almost entirely A*s across the board (and my CV listed out every subject and every grade at the time). What else could they want from a 16 year-old, other than that?

What I wish I knew before I started blogging | Plus: The COMPLETE Bloggers’ Toolkit

blog tips, blogging, blogging advice, tool kit, fashion bloggers, beauty bloggers, social media, infleuncer

Not too long ago now I published a blog all about how I balance blogging with a 12h a day job (link), and in that post I mentioned how I use an Excel file to track when I post, when I need to take photos, what PR contacts I have and also my finances. After this, quite a few people asked if I would be able to share more details about this file – so that I did – and more. At some point in my life I’ve dabbled in writing, webdesigning, blogging and Investment Banking, so I’ve combined the skills I’ve learned from each of these roles to provide you with The COMPLETE Bloggers’ Toolkit! What do you get? Media Kit templates, in-depth blogging e-guides, and an automated Excel file that will allow you to schedule your posts, your shoots, track your finances, contacts, and more… Of course more information to follow shortly but to find out more details and register your interest early please follow this link here!! It’s launching in April 2017, but be sure to follow me on social media (or sign up to my newsletter), to be in the know about every toolkit-related.
