Normalise saying I feel overwhelmed

Can we normalise saying, “I feel overwhelmed?”

Twice in the last month, members of my team have said to me, some version of, “I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed - can we talk about it, please?” Why am I writing a blog about this? Because I think it’s amazing. Not that people feel overwhelmed

Pomegranite turns 10

Pomegranite turns 10

1 July 2023 marked 10 years since we started Pomegranite. It’s surreal. When Liz and I sat down a decade ago to write our business plan, we decided to pepper it with ways we would celebrate big milestones. For our 10th birthday, we thought, we’d have

Rowan Jason Project Manager

Meet Rowan

Sometimes it really does feel like the right people cross paths with you at the perfect time. With Melissa’s promotion to Operations Manager at Pomegranite (the best thing to happen since Taylor Swift rerecorded her music for herself), we needed more project management capacity within the

Self-drive option

The self-drive option

My first day at Pomegranite was three days after my 28th birthday. I had worked my two months’ notice at my “real” job, and on 1 July 2013, as we sat in Liz’s tiny Long Street flat drinking tea on her couch, the enormity of

Adulting 101

We’re in a book about how to be an adult

Even though we’ve done this for nine years now, it’s still hard to think of ourselves as experts when it comes to starting your own business. When feminist writer and researcher, Jen Thorpe, asked us a few questions about entrepreneurship for her latest book, Adulting
