Starting a business – Freight Forwarder

Starting a business – Freight Forwarder
17/12/2021

Not many people I know have their own business – those that do would often say to follow your dreams not someone else’s. Falling into the world of shipping from school. I have never had a problem getting a job – with a smile and willingness to learn. I moved through the world of employment easily. This was until I became pregnant with my first daughter and received biggest revelation as a woman in a very male world …. I would never move any higher within my career if I also wanted a family!. Employment became frustrating from this point as I struggled to find part time jobs within the world of shipping I loved so much. I found companies didn’t feel I was loyal due to the building of my family. I myself had very few sick days, but with each childhood illness my daughter suffered the attitude of loyalty became a bigger issue within work. Trying to balance family and work so found part time jobs in various areas outside of the shipping world. This I have realised has positively extended my skill base. For many years I planned my business. Written business plan after business plan – revising and updating. With two children I found myself working a job that didn’t fulfil me, paying bills and going from one month to the other. Realising I had been holding myself back, not wanting to stand out! So the start of my lifelong plan of my business …….. The plan/s were there already so I started the gruelling process of finding out how to form a company. So October 2018 I established as Export Plus. (The name I had always wanted to use for about 15 years and it was available!) I was elated, I started the ball rolling set up a business banking account. I found an investor and had a great meeting where I proposed my plan, secured office space and even got email accounts set up, everything seemed to be going great, I was good to go….. To be continued ………..
