Patricia Tomlinson, born in Manchester, England, of Jamaican heritage.I have worked full-time since leaving college, it’s the ‘normal’ thing to do in the status quo system, right?
Fast forward to winter 2018, I make my daily hot ginger drink to take to work in a flask.Spring 2019 arrives with sunshine and warmth, it’s now too warm for this hot drink.An idea hits my head, add ice to it, and boom! It’s refreshing and delicious!I share it with colleagues who love it too, some couldn’t get enough of what I brought in for myself and were saying things like “I need my stress buster juice, please!”
In the middle of the night, I hear “why aren’t you selling this?”, I cower into my mattress thinking, I’m not a businesswoman, that’s not me!!However, the idea of selling wouldn’t leave me, so I stepped out of my comfort zone and went for it. I let colleagues, friends and family know who said things like, “Fabulous! Finally, I can get my own instead of taking some of yours” or “I don’t care how much, I need this drink!”
The year 2020 saw the official launch of my company Goodness Gracious Ginger.The more I stepped out, and believed, the more help, advice and opportunities became available to me, I couldn’t have imagined it!Believe me, it’s hard work.
There are times when I’d wake up in the morning not knowing how I was going to accomplish all the things on the to-do list and work full-time, because of how tired I was, but by the end of the day, tasks were accomplished and wondering (truly knowing) where my strength came from!
I am grateful beyond measure to my CEO, my Father God!
I am the founder of Goodness Gracious Ginger which is a remedy made with you in mind!
