6 years ago, I dropped out of school, broke the social norms and decided to take control by creating my path. This included finding out who I was, my strengths, weaknesses, and what I wanted from the world, throughout this time I've met some extraordinary people in the form of good friends and mentors, some of which I plan to bring on this show.
My promise is for this to be an honest reflection of my journey, this means no hiding or lying from the truth, this is my space where I talk about my startup Housemates, experiences, views on the world and about the things I care most about.

WHAT IT’S REALLY LIKE TO RUN A STARTUP 🤐
Today I wanted to talk about the other side to being a startup founder that the press doesn’t cover or make sound cool. The truth is so many people read the media and see people raising capital so easily, being acquired and more to then find out startup life really isn’t that easy. In this episode I talk about my journey and transition from a full time job to what I am now which is CEO of Housemates a marketplace for student accommodation. As always please do subscribe to this podcast and share this episode with someone you think needs to hear this! Thanks, Lyd
