A big welcome to Kelly Little from The Mighty Beetroot. She is another of the local #incredibleindependents based in Kingston. I recently attended one of her fantastic vegan workshops – which was so interesting and there were so many tasty treats! I’m excited to share more about her wonderful business in this 2 minute interview.

1) Why did you start your business?

I fell into my business as I started cooking therapeutically to heal my own joint issues and realised the impact a change in the way you eat can have on health and wellbeing.  I was such a convert I wanted to help others do the same either by teaching them, showing them how to do it themselves or doing it for them!

2) What do you love about running your own independent business?

I love the freedom to do what I love to do and do it whenever I want; I love the strategic process that is always going on inside my head; I love collaborating and networking with other synergistic businesses/providers; I’m a bit of a perfectionist so I also love the control I have over my end products.

3) What is your favourite product or service you provide/make and why?

My Snack and Fridge Fill service – I find it so rewarding to see the impact healthy snacks and meals can have on a client and feeding people good healthy food, nurturing my soul at the same time.

4) Let’s spread the indie love, name some other independent businesses you support.

I am meeting so many wonderful small businesses through local networking, to name a few of them….@decorcafe @thrivebeyonduk @freefromfairy @timetonourish @thenutritionguru @emmaperies

5) Which is your favourite social media platform and why?

Definitely Instagram, it’s a very visual medium and such a wonderfully collaborative environment, great for support but also inspiration!

Thanks so much to Kelly for sharing more about her wonderful business. Head to her website to find out more about her services, I’d certainly recommend heading to one of her workshops! Please continue to use the #incredibleindependents hashtag and of course continue to support all the incredible independent businesses out there!
