Who do you do it for? Who inspires you?

This month we are taking a step back to think about who inspires you or who you do all this for? My inspiration this month is Nicola Adams MBE. Nicola is the first woman to win an Olympic boxing title. She won gold in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics to name a couple of medals in her cabinet! She’s known for her inspirational goose-bump raising quote: ‘Tell me I can’t and that’s why I will’.

To top it off, this month she also won the MOBO Paving the Way Award. This award is designed to celebrate individuals who in any field are serving goals and punching above their weight, in turn inspiring and creating a path for others to follow. Those who achieve this award have a permanent paving stone laid in a place which shaped them to shine light on their achievements and inspire the next generation.


Nicola knew what she wanted to do since she was 12, and she didn’t let the haters hold her back:

She said: ‘(I was told) “If your dreams don't come true, you can be a ringcard girl.”

"Women should be in the kitchen. Women shouldn't be allowed to box.”

And my favourite one is – “why don't you just go play tennis?"

But I evolved, I knew I wanted to create a path so girls could follow.’

Nicola got her energy from proving people wrong and following her dreams. This is fantastic, but, what if you don’t know what your dreams are yet? Not all of us grow up knowing exactly what we want to do with our lives. This is where Springboard empowers women who may not have Nicola’s lioness bravery, to gain confidence in a safe environment to explore all the options and create their own path.

You may or may not know that we went on Salford City Radio on the 19th October. This was a brilliant chance to let everyone know what we do and we met some fantastic people. The experience was surreal and something we would love to do again! Missed it? Listen back to it here

Salford City Radio

We just wanted to add personal note to thank everyone who attended our Expo and Networking event on Friday 4th November. We would like to give a special thanks to our fabulous Guest Speaker, Dawn, Doing Biz For Yourself (who you may remember from our first newsletter!) who gave an inspiring talk about networking and her experiences both good and bad! You can catch up with all the pics and videos from the event by searching #GOExpoGCasino. We can now reveal the winner of the prize, and it's... Natalie Lovatt of Ralli Solicitors.

Riaz, Owner of Kappi Drinks


Tell us about what you do?

At Kappi Limited we are producing a brand new type of energy drink which we believe will take the market by storm. Staying away from the typical stereotypes of energy drinks is something we are keen to do, we plan to do this by targeting the female side of the market whilst making sure we don’t correlate with the ‘extreme' stereotype.

We realise a large amount of people have become, or are becoming more and more health conscious, so we plan to take this on board by ensuring our 500ml bottles have as much caffeine as your average cup of coffee! Adding to that the fact our drinks will be non-carbonated, naturally sweetened and fruit juice infused, we think we have a product which really caters to the market! On top of this we plan to create an entertaining brand which serves the community.

What song motivates you?

Personally, a song which gets me motivated is B.o.B/Eminem - Airplanes Part 2. This song tells me what the artists had to go through to get to the world beating positions they’re at now. Even if you don’t like rap music, I highly recommend just reading the lyrics of this song. It will definitely get you ready to take on your day.

What is your favourite phrase or quote?

Quotes are great, I thoroughly enjoy looking at what great business minds of past and present have to say and using their advice to benefit myself. This quote that I’ve picked out here was the one that got me from being doubtful about my business acumen and unsure on whether or not to start my business, to taking action and bringing my idea to life:

"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.” - Steve Jobs.

If you’re stuck between a choice of doing something and not doing it. Analyse the pros and cons of the options, if the decision is still up in the air, do it. Always do it. You can deal with the consequences later. Its better to regret doing something than to not do it at all.

Why do you think training is important?

I think training is not only important, but it is essential to the longevity and success of your business, or whatever career you choose to have. I think what you learn, especially from people who know what they’re talking about, means you can apply that to your life/business in a beneficial way. Training helps you identify your weaknesses and it allows you to work with someone who has the capability of improving you. You may have no concept on how to save money, if you train yourself through a course or a book, then you have picked up that skill which will only enhance your life/business for the better.

One top tip:
Read books. Lots of them.. All of them.
