The price of being a sheep is boredom. The price of being a wolf is loneliness. Hugh MacLeod.
This is the story of my (Glen’s) transition from sheep to wolf (or working for a large Corporation to setting up a microbrewery). The journey so far has not been dull and along the way I have captured the experience and how it makes me feel.
I’ve been really lucky to have had a lot of help and support from loved ones, friends, and strangers who are doing it out of the goodness of their own heart. I will “pay if forward” one day (and this is just the beginning)
Things haven’t been straightforward but somehow I’m still here. So far I’ve had to:
- Rename the business due to the threat of legal action.
- Change the business structure as my business partnership fell through.
- Setup two business premises as one wasn’t viable.
- Convince four separate groups that my business should receive a government loan.
I hope this journey will provide interesting reading, and might just give you the confidence to stand up and howl at the moon!
