Hi there! I’m Caroline Towers, creator and founder of Conversations with Caroline.  Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to check out my blog.

Simply Be - Be Bright and Bold

I live in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England with my boyfriend Keil.

I graduated from Bradford University in 2012 with a degree in Creative Writing and English Literature.  I have always loved to write and after I left university I started my own business as an Arbonne health and wellness consultant.  I love having my own business but I missed writing.  So, I decided to start a blog!

Conversations with Caroline has developed from a lifestyle blog to a resource for bloggers.  I share blogging tips regularly and in 2016 launched my online course, Trigger Your Blog.  You will still find a few lifestyle and travel posts dotted around but my main focus is helping you grow your blog.

I would describe myself as a lifestyle blogger and multi-passionate entrepreneur.  I continue to grow my Arbonne business and I am also the co-founder (alongside Keil) of Voltage Sport where recently we launched our own clothing line.

I love to write and create – I spend plenty of time with my head in the clouds, dreaming of my next project.

I’ve had my fair share of the 9-5 – It isn’t for me.

At 14 I started to work in my mum and step-dads business, they own a bike shop.  I worked Saturday’s and school holidays and for a while after my A-Levels I was full-time.  This gave me a good insight into owning your own business.  I still do some work for them today focusing mainly on the online side of things.

I have a diploma in Personal Training, I wanted to do this freelance but I had little confidence at the time so I never really put it to good use.  It’s nice I am finally using the skills I learnt over at Voltage Sport.  Instead, I worked for a mortgage company and then in various departments in Social Services. Although the jobs I did were, for the most part, interesting, I always felt there was more to life than working in an office.  If you work in an office that’s fine I just knew it wasn’t for me.  It was at this point I decided to go to University, I thought at least for 3 years of my life I will have done something interesting.  I’ve really never looked back since then.

I have so many things which interest me.  Here are a few things:

I love to write – I totally love writing.  I may not always be the best at it but I love to be creative.  I never thought of myself as a creative person because I am not great at art and making things but I have realised there are many different ways to be creative.

I love the movies – Going to the cinema and watching a good film makes me really happy!

I love nice food – I love eating out and trying new food as well as eating at home and cooking.  It’s fun and you can have some great conversations over food.

I love going to the gym – I first joined a gym at 16 and I’ve had a constant membership ever since.  I may sometimes lapse or be less motivated but overall it is something I really enjoy doing.  Over the last year I have had a recurring injury where I haven’t been able to go as much and I really missed it!

I love small business – I am always thinking of new business ideas because I love the concept of business – I don’t act on them all but maybe one day I will!  The idea of growing a business from scratch, working for myself and being my own boss is the best thing in the world.  I think it is important more people understand the importance of supporting their friends and families businesses and the difference these can make to the world.

I love to travel – Planning a trip, followed by going somewhere else in the world is such an exciting process. It’s fun to explore new places and return to places I love.  It’s really  something which lights up my soul.
