Do what you love, but do it well
This is me, Fiona, in the Soapery, the place I love most. I built Soap Folk literally from the ground up, including these shelves you see behind me.
It’s very easy when you have children to lose sight of who you are and what you can do. But that’s exactly what happened to me.
I saw a facebook post from Made in Stroud asking for local soap makers. It was a lightning bolt moment - I can do this!
It was time to come out of the shadows. To build a business based on my own values, and to show my daughters that anything is possible.
