How do you cope when you’ve got a business that’s skyrocketing under Covid, plus three kids at home? That’s what we wanted to find out from Steph Douglas, whose gift-box business Don’t Buy Her Flowers found that sales went through the roof when the shops closed.
We chatted to the brilliant Steph about how she found herself working full-on under highly adrenalized conditions, how she coped with the guilt about doing well when other industries suffered, and the intense pressure and responsibility she felt. It wasn’t until she had a break from work that Steph found herself struggling with her mental health – she shares how she managed this and what her plans are to cope with Pandemic: The Return.
