was started by Lola Hoad in 2015.
The name came from a series on her blog that shared her journey as a self-taught self-employed entrepreneur with her design studio LH design. When the posts started gaining popularity, Lola decided to move the conversation onto Instagram, where she hosted Q&A sessions on all things business. The wholehearted honesty and openness spoke to other creatives and Lola knew she had to get it out into the real world.
The first OGB meet up was in Brighton in May 2015 and she's been in love with getting female creatives in the same room with inspirational chat, good coffee and lots of laughs ever since.
