It shocks no-one more than me, but I’m apparently now seen as something of a success story. And yes, typing that just made me a bit sick in my mouth, but please bear with me – I promise I'm going somewhere.
Since launching The Flock, I’ve had an incredible amount of support and, because of the joys of social media, most assume what I’m doing is reaping rewards. Which is lovely, of course, but also embarrassing and, not to put too fine a point on it, something of a misnomer.
Because the truth is that, behind the shiny Instagram tiles, I’m scared, and actually rather skint. Going it alone is exposing and frightening, but acknowledging that feels like failure. So until now, I haven't.
