Five minutes with… Aqueous DigitalTell us about your business…

Our plan is to reach the £1 million mark by the close of 2019!

Describe your typical daily routine…

My role at Aqueous Digital is freelance so there is no typical daily routine! I’m also involved in the running of two other companies so I can usually be found training, selling, coaching or networking.

Plus, my work outside of the business keeps me very busy! This year I’ve started acting as an extra on Coronation Street, Hollyoaks and the BBC drama ‘Wanderlust’ to name a few. After 25 years as a lead singer in bands, I decided to go solo and I’m also a part-time carer for my father, who has dementia.

Why did you choose 54 St. James Street?

With our head office in Cheshire, we secured a presence in London and Birmingham and with clients throughout the UK, we felt a presence in Liverpool was necessary.

The city is full of wonderful office space. However, 54 St James Street was the hub we were looking for. At the heart of the digital quarter and with easy access in and out. Also, their passion and desire to assist businesses with their digital understanding and training through The Women’s Organisation was a huge factor in our decision.

I’m also Chairman of Merseyrail Ladies Football Club – it was our vision for the senior ladies to have their own football stadium, which has now been agreed by the Football Foundation and Liverpool City Council. The ground? Well, it’s not far away from 54 St James Street at Admiral Park in L8.

What would be your top tips for anyone looking to start a business?

Sell your passion. If you love what you are doing, it won’t feel like a job. Seek the advice of others who have been in your situation. It’s good to talk!

 What’s on your reading or watch list at the moment?

I’ve just read ‘Caught in a Trap’ about Elvis Presley by Liverpool’s own Spencer Leigh. He asked me to check the facts of the draft and I’m in the acknowledgements – I’m very pleased to be in print!

I’m also looking forward to the new movie ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
