The Short Cut:
A quick fire chat about working life with Jules Robertson
At the heart of the Nurture Network is the power of sharing experiences. From breakthrough career moments, to best ever advice, how to deal with stress and the women that inspire them.
The Short Cut designed to bring you a snapshot of our members’ working lives. Today we’re speaking to Jules Roberston co founder at Tally Market.
Tell us about your breakthrough career moment
It was probably even before I started my ‘career’ – when I met my co-founder, Laura, at University at the age of 18.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever had?
Saying no to something means saying yes to something else (even if it is unknown).
Have you ever felt held back as a woman in business? How did you respond?
….Yes, when raising money for Tally Market. Say it with stats!
How do you protect your mental health in moments of pressure?
Realise that with pressure comes adrenaline and you can use that adrenaline to overcome barriers. Also – have lovely loved ones and go for long walks!
Do you have any hobbies to keep you busy in your spare time?
Tennis and watching reality TV.
I feel empowered when…
… people come to me for advice.
The world would be a better place when…
… we appreciated each other.
The woman everyone should know about is …
Michelle Roycroft – the MD of Help me Angela – an amazing organisation protecting the lives of thousands. She was a police officer and private detective for 30+ years and now has turned to tech to help us all!
The woman who empowers me the most is…
… my best friend Lauren – she is a neurosurgeon – that says it all!
Where is your favourite place in the world?
The roof of my mums house (Nerja, Spain) with some salty crisps and a cold drink with my pals (and my mum).
