Beers For Good is a meet-up for people in advertising who are interested in making a positive difference together.
Every month, we invite someone to share their experience of making a positive change in their life. We intend to share questions, challenges and discuss ways we can use our creative skills for good.
This month, we've invited Alex Lemon to talk about how she started making BISCU*TSquot;BISCU*TS") – delicious buttery shortbread stamped with creative swears.
Before BISCU*TS, Alex spent 3 grey years in finance. She buried her head in spreadsheets, buttoned down her creativity and pretended she could forge the career of The Sensible Shoulds. She couldn't, and ended up in A&E with stress-induced anaphylaxis.
By taking a long hard look at what went wrong, Alex found her way back to her creativity, her daftness and herself. Now a freelance content strategist, people no longer even suspect she was a chartered accountant – until she opens her spreadsheet of profanity.
