Well hello and thank you for stopping by!
My name’s Emma and I just love creating great experiences for people and sharing that knowledge with others who want to do the same.
There’s a bit of background about me directly below for those of you who like a bit more detail, but if your main area of interest is how I can help you generate a life changing income from your land, then skip to the bottom paragraph headed How I can help you…
‘Do what you love with people you love’ is probably one of my favourite sayings and I’ve finally managed to bring it to fruition. I spend my days working in our gorgeous Somerset based businesses and love what I do – if it doesn’t delight me I try not to do it.
I’m a qualified Accountant & Board Director and have always been captivated by business. I jumped ship from a corporate manufacturing career 15 years ago and have been running my own business since then, initially as a consultant helping businesses to grow and then running my own businesses, so I’ve got a fair bit of business experience under my belt.
However, to be honest, empathy, intuition and a curiosity about businesses and people are probably my best attributes – because most of my time nowadays is spent thinking about overall customer experiences.
Where you’ll find me
Dimpsey is our 5* luxury shepherd hut glamping business. We’ve won awards and are well known for being a high end stay with an excellent customer service record. We dreamed this one up in 2010 and established it in 2014 from scratch, learning lots of lessons in the process.
Blackdown Shepherd Huts built the shepherd huts we have here at Dimpsey and are based about 10 minutes down the road from us. Over the years, I have become involved with helping them to develop their business and I’m delighted to be part of their story now.
You’ll also see me over at Hiho Silver – a well-known country and equestrian jeweller. I’ve been involved with them for over 10 years now and the customer retail experience that we provide there has been a great grounding in being able to deliver a great hospitality experience.
How I can help you…
Over the last 5 years, I have built a successful award winning glamping business that generates a sizeable income from the land on our small farm. We don’t have a huge farm so we needed to do something, but I genuinely never believed it would be this successful. Over the years I have regularly helped Blackdown customers out with start-up advice and have often thought that I should do a course. Finally in 2019, I decided that I needed and get on and do it, so I can help more people enjoy what we are so lucky enough to have. I signed up with Lisa Bean from Dare to Grow so that I could learn to create the best online course possible and here I am. I’m ready to distil all the knowledge, shortcuts and mistakes we made over the years into a fantastic resource for first-time glamping owners.
