“To people starting up their own business I would say feel the fear and do it anyway. It is scary, but make sure you try it. Transitioning to be the only person making decisions is really hard at first and you carry the business with you all the time, but it is amazing to see your decisions become a reality.”
Olivia received mentoring for X-Forces as both a business owner and a military spouse. She worked alongside X-Forces CEO Ren Kapur MBE to support military spouses in enterprise endeavours.
“I struggled with my place and purpose as a military spouse. There are questions like how do you maintain a career and friendships when you move around so much.”
Olivia wants to continue to support military spouses to realise that they can start-up their own businesses and find their own place in self-employment. She’s keen to continue mentoring and providing spaces for spouses to talk about their enterprise journey as she launches Olivia & Pearl.
