Where does the name Everyday People come from?

The essence behind Everyday People is my desire to work alongside good people, when I say, “Good People”, I don’t just mean those who are great at what they do, but those who are simply decent folk.

After a glass of wine or two I came up with the working title “good peoples”, but in the end, I named it after the song. The meaning behind the lyrics resonate with me - intrinsically they are saying let’s be nice people, folks. I’ve always preferred the Sly and the Family Stone version.


If only I knew back then what I know now

As far back as I can remember I’ve always admired those who ran their own business, but it didn’t enter my mind that I could actually start my own. I fell into it in my thirties, and despite long hours and the inevitable ups and downs, I've never regretted it. If I can help (even in a tiny way) the amazing people with the dedication and mastery it takes to be self-employed, that would make me happy!


If you'd like to find out more I’d be happy to call you or get a coffee.
