#MTM001 : PEBBLE + FRED

Tell us a bit about yourself + your business

I love some fun. I love making beautiful earrings and necklaces that are pink. Hot pink, pale pink, dusty pink, baby pink, light pink and I'm a sucker for mint.

I love gold and silver but not the expensive kind. I crave colour but most every time I choose the white pair. I love white and black and sometimes mixed together.

Pebble+Fred is the front counter lolly jar in your favourite store. The "Oh no I just can't decide!" sigh. 

Pebble+Fred is pretty ... girly.

Tell us about your morning process?

Currently (always changing with a small peep in your world) We get up at 5:30am.

Honor eats her favourite, rolled oats, I shower do as much of the house stuff as I can and then we head out for our walk. Coffee, fruit toast and park then home.

She's a super sleeper, most days 4 hours so thats when I get all my "good" work done.

What tools do you use in your biz to keep you organised and on top of your tasks? 

MYOB. Love it and apart from a notebook which I religiously write my to do lists there isn't much else in the way of tools. I"m not a phone person and stay off it as much as possible!

What is the best thing you have done for you and your business this year?

Take a really incredible trip to New York and then across to California with Andrew and ONLY Andrew. We had the best time just being a couple with no baby or work and it was the best feeling ever.

What inspired you to start your business?

Nothing - I just knew I was never going back to work after having our little girl. So one day I decided what I was going to do and just went for it.

What is your fav quote?

Work Hard and Be Nice to People.

What is the number one thing that you love about running your own creative business?

Everything. I make my own money doing something that I love.

Where are you the most and least organised in your business?

Most organised - hmmm... MYOB, accounts and my emails are always in check I suppose. Getting orders out i'm pretty good at. BUT i'm totally crap at Social Media and keeping up with all the lovely comments people leave... I wish I had another 2 hours in the day to do that.

What is the best advice you have received that has helped you in your business?

Hmm. Advice? Well I think it was my mum that probably said it when I was young but she said "focus on your own stuff - don't worry about anyone else" Now I use that with my business and just focus on my business and will not get caught up in competition etc. Do not have the time!

How do you handle moments of self doubt?: 

I talk to my gorgeous partner Andrew. Always makes me feel amazing and great and like super woman. I also sometimes write a list of the stuff i've accomplished already.

Tell us about your most favourite or popular product/service that you have created recently?

The necklace I created with an incredible friend @grimesyandrat it is honestly to die for!
