Co Owner of Black Mountain
5 Years of Something Beautiful
Today a Facebook notification popped up, "Your Memories on Facebook", dated June 28, 2012: "Tomorrow is my last day working in book publishing, after eight wonderful years. Thanks to all of those who shared it with me: it was never well paid, often absurd but always fun - you guys were awesome".  I often wonder what it is about me that didn't work in a corporate space and why I never progressed much. I suppose I chopped and changed roles and companies many times, learning as I went, meeting amazing people, but there was something about my career that always made me feel stifled and frustrated. Like I was just swimming the race, never really excelling.

The truth about a lifestyle business
By Catherine Although Black Mountain has been alive for a few years now, it's only recently that we've realised what we really are: we're a "lifestyle business". Contrary to what many people believe, this doesn't mean we're lazy or unambitious compared to the business owners who employ hundreds of people, with a head office and branches and middle managers. Like them, we work hard and we take pride in what we do.
