The growth from 2013 to 2016 for Georgie Moore’s business is an inspiring and astounding story. Back in 2013, Georgie came to The Women’s Organisation with the goal to start her own business. We interviewed Georgie back then (read the interview here) and her moving story reached out to many other women. Following the sad loss of her brother and father, she felt this was the time “Where the idea for my business stemmed from, wanting to help people as well as helping myself.”
Georgie contacted The Women’s Organisation for support on starting up her business. “The help was invaluable and my adviser really gave me some confidence back.” 3 years on from this first meeting, Georgie is back!
With our support Georgie set up ‘We Write for You’, a writing service offering a wide range of individual and business services, based on needs. This service will help with letters, eulogies, speeches, complaints, memoirs, CV’s business plans and form filling. For a business Georgie’s aim is to particularly support local businesses who need administration support such as letters, help with meetings, events, minutes, agenda, action plan, QMS systems (Quality Management), tenders, bid writing, presentations, website content, report writing and business plans.
Then from her business of writing Georgie developed her own range of Liverpool Gifts that she was selling to local independent shops, but soon found herself wanting her own shop in her own community, which led to Liverpool Gift Gallery!
In November 2016, Georgie opened the doors to her new business, Liverpool Gift Gallery, a “Art and Gift Shop stocking design-led products from local independent artists, designers and makers.” Her business features the work of more than thirty Merseyside artists, makers and designers. Georgie says that “the response has been remarkable and has already exceeded my hopes for the business.” The local community have been “incredibly supportive and have helped us to attract attention from much further afield via social media and word of mouth.”Georgie has utilised social media for her business that has contributed to the success of her new shop.
For Georgie there was an absence of a local shop where she could buy the unique and creative cards, gifts and artwork that she now has been able to sell. The opening of her shop has brightened up the local community. The artists have put their faith in Georgie to deliver a quality service which has allowed her to bring“high quality, affordable artworks and products to a lovely part of the City.”The high quality artwork has been extremely successful in attracting customers.
“The gift gallery has proved a welcome addition to the independent businesses in the Village.”
Georgie told us in 2013 that “I’ve got my zest and enthusiasm back, a bounce in my step and I’m going to keep plugging away.” Since then, she has kept “plugging away” and is continually growing and developing as a successful business woman.
