Carol Haffke - The wonderful, amazing and sometimes scary transition from employee to self-employment
Carol Haffke spent 23 years as a journalist as well as working in PR and fundraising in Australia, Namibia, Portugal and Vietnam. Nearly five years ago, she had a career meltdown and decided in just four hours to leave everything behind, sell her house and open her own longer sized, women’s shoe shop. And she has never, ever, ever been happier! She is proud of her first years in business and how much she has learned ... given she knew nothing about business or about the shoe industry. She is particularly proud of being a not-just-for-profit and has just released her first book In My Shoes – What it’s really like to start your own business.
