What moment of madness sparked your journey?
When did you decide this was the path for you?
How has a support network helped you?
We talk honestly (with the help of some champagne) about the why and how of how we started. Join us in Methodical HQ for drinks, celebrating the store’s opening and to find out what made us go out on our own and what the spark was that started the journey.
For our first instalment of The Method join:
Lucinda Batchelor, Founder of Methodical @livemethodical
Kaysha Omole, Founder of KayK Goods @KayKGoods
Sarah Durber, Founder of Succulence London @succulencelondon
Aimee Spillman, Founder of Woodle Books @woodlebooks
Who discuss what made us start our hustles, the highs, lows and everything in between on our journey to become the people we are today.
The Method is a monthly gathering of freelancers, side hustlers and those who work for themselves to meet, network and beat the loneliness that can happen when you work for yourself; in a safe, intimate environment to help identify the method to your madness.
It is woven in Methodical’s DNA that finding your tribe is a huge part of being productive and we want to help you find yours, with us.
Each month we discuss a topic that affects those who are thinking of, have taken the leap or are in the deep throws of going out on your own; demystifying the world of self-employment and business, through humour, honesty and cocktails.
Having worked in retail buying for over seven years’ and suffering from burnout as a result, Lucinda (a dedicated stationery nerd and list obsessive) decided to start Methodical to help others get organised through stationery, writing and self-care.
Methodical is more than a productive stationery supply store, it’s about helping you understand what motivates you to work and using that as the boost, allowing you to work to live, not the other way around.
Training as a fine artist, Kaysha developed a strong affinity for lines and composition, alongside my constant desire to look at my identity.
These thought processes transcend also in my approach to material and style, wanting to make something that will hopefully be cherished forever. With no date stamp and no fuss, just us and our stories.
Creating unique and minimal leather folios and accessories, KayK Goods creates tools for the modern, minimalist creative.
Here at Succulence, Sarah, its founder, knows that our customers want plants in their lives but haven't necessarily got the time to care for anything that needs daily watering and pruning.
She has sourced gorgeous indoor plants that don't need lots of care and that fit comfortably in homes and workspaces of all shapes and sizes. We especially love the clever air purifying plants that have made the NASA Clean Air Study list, knowing just how polluted the city air around us is.
Having worked in a bindery for 5 years , Aimee decided it was time to go it alone.
Setting up Woodle Books to make books she would want to buy, realising there is a massive hole in the market for well made, unique, carefully crafted notebooks. Her messages of empowerment started off as a collection and have turned into core of Woodle Books.
Empowering people is important to Aimee, Feminism is important, giving people that little push to be more, not be scared and just be AWESOME.
The range of notebooks on offer have been carefully cultivated, Aimee gets inspiration from those around her and from the other fellow Lady Bosses she sources her papers from.
