Crowdfunding is just part of the story, Listen to the VIP Lady Maddy Alexander-Grout. Her story starts from when she gave birth to her first son Ben and she was housebound for 3 months, too afraid to go out of the house.
Listen to Maddy’s candid story on the podcast and hear how she changed her life around and went from a socialite in the local coffee shop with no more than 20 mums sitting and chatting to building a parenting forum with over 7,400 parents sharing ideas and building her community. As she was building the parenting forum, she wanted to find other ways to help and support her community so she set up, MYVIPCARD.CO.UK which is a reward and loyalty card business to encourage her community to shop local. Now she is branching out across the United Kingdom building her business for other communities, to support local businesses and their communities to reward people to buy local.
If you have ever wanted your own business and start out doing something you love, why not check out her website to see what opportunities there are for you too.
