The PickYourself #SelfStarterStories exist to support small business entrepreneurs and freelancers tell their stories. 

We are passionate about celebrating small business entrepreneurs and inspiring those who have the ideas but have yet to make the leap to becoming self-employed or starting a company.


It’s a cultural instinct to wait to get picked. To seek out the permission and authority.

Once you understand that there are problems just waiting to be solved, once you realise that you have all the tools and all the permission you need, then opportunities to contribute abound.

Don’t wait to get picked.

Pick Yourself.
— Seth Godin, 2011
