Dominic Eden – Gadabouting
When I first heard of Watershed I had just set up Gadabouting, a luxury travel website I had been refining for a couple of years.
At the time, I was not after investor funding but I was intrigued by the prospect of finding out how best to grow my online business by exploring my own strengths and weaknesses, attitude and mindset. To a certain extent I had never even thought that side of it really mattered!
My 12 day residential break – right in the middle of my busy start-up – was an amazing experience. It enabled me to focus on areas which I would not have deemed important in the hectic turmoil of starting up. Whilst I had not felt I needed mentoring on how to maximise my strengths and find the right kind of people to help me develop my business further, I came away with a new set of business tools and a whole new attitude towards turning my fledgling business into a thriving success. I maintain regular contact with the Watershed team who take an active interest in my progress.
