During the time when I was adapting to living with my newly-acquired sight loss things would sometimes feel pretty tough and frustrating. On those difficult days, I would tell myself, “If life deals you lemons, Steph…. get out there and make lemonade”! This saying served to motivate me and remind me that I had a choice.
When I started to promote my concept of an inclusion consultancy, I quickly became known as the ‘Lemonade girl’! So when it came to coming up with a business name only one name would do.
All these years later, Making Lemonade remains a fitting name as I support people to turn the lemons in their life into lemonade, and support organisations to create opportunities and maximise impact.
“If life deals you lemons… make lemonade!” still gets me out of bed in the morning and underpins everything Making Lemonade is about.
