ABOUT


Hi, I'm Poppy!


So I'm a fashion loving Prestonian who is passionate about entrepreneurship and breaking glass ceilings 🙌🏻 ✨

Having run my own fashion business Mary & Milly for several years I know just how hard the world of business is (blood, sweat & tears) as well as how rewarding it can be too. This is one of the reasons why We Are Start Up Sisters is launching. I want to be able to educate, empower and hopefully inspire others to go for it! 


So I now have a mixture of roles and projects running parallel... I am a lecturer in both business & fashion, I am also self employed working as a consultant and I have recently completed my MBA and I am now undertaking my PG Cert in Learning & Teaching. I have a portfolio career with We Are Start Up Sisters to add to the mix 👩🏼‍💻👩🏻‍💻 

I'm really looking forward to working with my good friend Sarah supporting others to pursue their dreams ✨


Hi I’m Sarah!

Thought I would share a little insight into my background so you know the full story behind We Are Start Up Sisters! 👯‍


Anyone who knows me will tell you I’m pretty fashion obsessed and I have been since I was little so I’m excited to inspire others to start their own business and really go for it, you really have nothing to lose! 


I studied English Literature at University as I’ve always loved writing and then did a Masters in Magazine Journalism as I wanted to work as a journalist for a women’s magazine ✍️ 

I spent a year interning for a national women’s magazine in London before working for Revlon and other amazing PR companies. I worked for free for a long time 😅 and sadly realised journalism wasn’t meant to be! So, it was then I moved into fashion ecommerce and digital marketing..a good move as most businesses are online now!


I managed to secure a dream job, styling models for fashion campaigns and running a whole fashion website with more than 30 brands! The experience taught me so much as I was thrown in the deep end and I decided to continue working in social media and ecommerce for luxury brands on a freelance basis. 


Alongside this I set up my own Personal Styling Business and Online Fashion Store @sarahstylesuk and I juggle this alongside a freelance digital consultancy business 🙃I like to keep busy as you can tell! 


Poppy and I have both got experience working with different businesses and have lots of advice to share. We haven't always got it right and have made mistakes along the way so hopefully you can take something from our insights. 


We hope our page inspires you to believe in your dreams, take risks and just go for it! Amazing things are on the other side of your comfort zone ❤️
