Carrie Green // Founder of the Female Entrepreneur Association

In 2005 I was 19 and studying Law at the University of Birmingham. I knew nothing about business, although I always thought I’d end up doing my own thing – as opposed to working for someone else, I just didn’t realise that I’d end up doing my own thing so soon.

Since then I graduated with a degree in Law, I started 2 businesses, I went to night school to learn about web development, I travelled around Thailand and Australia, I had my videos viewed half a million times on YouTube, I had my website viewed by over 5 million people, I became financially free.

However, there are a few things I’ve come to realise about being an entrepreneur… it’s harder than it first seems, it’s a lonely journey, but when you finally turn ideas into reality it’s incredible and I wouldn’t change it for the world!

I have had my fair share of ups and downs. I started off with nothing, but an idea, a credit card and a marketing budget of £30 per day and I have turned it into a successful, global business. Has it been easy? No, but if I can do it, then anyone can.

I think the secret to success is having the right mindset. You’ve got to believe you can do it, even when things seem impossible.

I started the Female Entrepreneur Association in 2011 as a way to connect with like-minded women from all over the world and find out how they keep motivated, how they overcome challenges, what things they’ve learnt along the way. I love it.

I will be blogging about my journey as an entrepreneur, things that inspire me and tips & tricks that help me grow my business. I hope you enjoy reading and watching!
