A few weeks ago, I went on holiday abroad for the first time since the pandemic started in 2020 but also the first time since we launched the business in 2019 too. One of the reasons for not going away sooner (other than the pandemic) was that I wanted to find someone I trusted to hold the fort and look after things whilst I was away.
Thankfully, I managed to find someone who was brilliant and felt at ease for the first time, leaving the reins with someone else whilst I took time out.
