Emma Paxton shares with us  ...

Describe your business

I draw stuff! I am a graphic recorder and illustrator – I draw live at events to capture the key outcomes and ideas and I create bespoke illustrations for the web ad print.

Who do you work with?

My graphic recording clients are generally corporates and not-for-profits – conferences, meetings and training days.

My illustration clients are varied – one day I am illustrating a book, the next a social media post or website image. I also create planners, training materials and visual agendas for the events I’m graphic recording.

What did you do before?

I worked in the events industry – I organised thousands of business support events for Business Link.

What have been the biggest challenges of running your business?

Loneliness! – after having people around me to bounce ideas off and share the responsibility I found working on my own the hardest thing of all.

What's in the pipeline for you?

This year my graphic recording business has really taken off – in the 7 years (lucky number 7!) since I started my business I think I’ve finally found my thing! Bookings are coming in – I’m getting repeat business and I’m actually confident enough in my offering to actively go out and sell myself.

What are you proud of?

The above! Finding the thing I love and finding other people love it too!

What advice would you offer wannabe entrepreneurs?

1. Join WOBS Plus Coaching & Mentoring and get support and advice from lovely people.

2. Find your tribe – get together with other people doing the same as you and learn from them.
