It's time for episode 18 of our podcast, the Small Business Sessions.
Standing terrified in front of journalists doesn't sound like the perfect night out, but Nazia Nasreen, founder of the UK's first online Islamic toy store Ibraheem Toy Store, summoned the courage and it paid off!
That pitch at Enterprise Nation's Meet the Journalists even in Birmingham led to her being featured in the Economist and local publication, Business Quarter Magazine.
Nazia then attended one of our digital bootcamps and met a brand strategist and a packaging expert, both of whom she's now working with. If you ever needed a session that encourages you with real life examples of just how many opportunities are out there when you step out of your comfort zone, then this is it!
