Pip has experienced first hand that while running your own businesses can been incredible, it also holds some challenges. Like most small business, she was doing all the accounts, marketing, social media, scheduling and teaching the workshops, following up with customers and collaborators, writing and performing ceremonies, the legal paperwork (and her social work background didn’t prepare her for any of those things)! It can feel overwhelming, so she started to ask herself - “what if I could get people out from behind their screens and their tired routines and sit knee to knee with other business owners?” She had a vision to create a space where people could share their learnings, find community, work on their business and look after themselves, all at the same time. And so … Out of Office was born.
