    S2 EP.08 | Sharon Livermore MBE - A Survivor Story

    My friend Sharon shares her story and what she's gone on to achieve since - both with her business, and how she supports other survivors. Since recording Sharon has been awarded an MBE in the New Years Honours for her services to Domestic Abuse. I'm so proud of her - she is an inspiration!

    ABOUT CHERYL

    👋🏻 I'm Cheryl, the founder and CEO of Pink Pig Financials - a multi award winning lifestyle-focused firm of Accountants in the UK.



    As a domestic abuse survivor I am deeply passionate about providing the support and confidence I wish I’d had to people taking their first steps into business. With a little support and guidance other survivors can step out from isolation, and rebuild a life they so deeply deserve and dream of - and never feel financially trapped ever again.



    Setting up my business in 2014 was one of the scariest but most rewarding things I have ever done.  I launched PPF to build a more flexible life around my family and gain some independence, and I believe all business owners can work towards their ideal lifestyle from day one of setting up a business.



    Through PPF I am able to provide accountancy services to small businesses, making the whole process a lot more simple and efficient.  Meaning business owners can focus on other areas of their business, and also spend more time doing the things they love with the people they love.



    And on a personal level I'm about to start my Mentoring journey, sharing my story, inspiring and helping other survivors to gain their own independence, and to start dreaming again about what is possible.



    If I can do it, then so can others.  So I’m here to help them on their way and be the person I wished I had!
