Hi. I’m Rosie and I love the internet.
This space is a place to replace my Twitter activity. My time is up there and this is my casual space to hang out and share thoughts on all things related to:
unschooling / home education
autism (as a late diagnosed autistic woman)
And whatever pops up along the way.
Who am I?
That’s a good question.
I’m a founder and have been indiependent most of my working life. My special love is to combine business with community building.
I founded and still co-own Ministry of Testing, it’s a “7 figure” community of practice for software testers. I worked on it for over 10 years until I handed the reigns over to a new CEO to run it. It holds a special place in my heart and I continue to act as a “board member and advisor”.
I am an investor too and always interested to hear of new opportunities to invest or advise companies.
After I left Ministry of Testing, I led community at Indie Hackers for two years. It was fun and I had a great experience. It made me realise how much being an indie founder is part of my DNA.
These days I’m working on building a portfolio of communities all in areas that are of deep interest to me:
🐞 Ministry of Testing - software testers
🌈 Rosieland - community builders
🌻 Indiependent - indie(pendent) founders
🎨 More coming soon :)
I live in Brighton (UK), with my husband and 5 children.
