Enterprising Women in Plymouth

Gummee Glove - An inspiring business woman Jodie Boothby

Enterprising Women in Plymouth

I was fortunate to attend the Enterprising Women networking event at Plymouth Marine Aquarium. I have never been to the Horizons Suite and was bowled over by the incrediable panoramic views over Sutton Harbour towards the Barbican.  It was a glorious day and a great reminder of how lucky we are to live in this fantastic part of the world.
Lucy from Enterprising Women introduced us to Jodie Boothby who has recently won a Mumpreneur Award with her product for teething babies the 'Gummee Glove'.  She gave an inspiring presentation taking us through her life journey, including many years of going up entrepreneurial blind alleys, leading to this point where she is finally seeing some success. So it seems tenacity is the name of the game and fortified with this news I'm passing it on!
It's so easy to get bogged down in the day to day hassle when you are trying to make some thing happen - it's great to see women finally getting the break they need after many years of hard graft. It was also inspirational to hear about the 'secret' investor who loaned her money pound per pound without interest! There are amazing people around - the world is a good place.
