Whilst I’m yet to embark on my motorbike adventure, sadly my Harley-Davidson journey has come to an end. After working on a contract for the company for the last 3 months, the time has come to give up the maternity mantle and move onto marketing pastures new.
I can genuinely say without a shadow of a doubt, Harley-Davidson has been my favourite ever place to work. Ok, with a kick-ass brand lived and breathed by millions – some of whom don’t even own a bike!, it’s hardly surprising, but before I got to experience it for myself, I couldn’t begin to imagine just how much of an impact it would have on me.
Not only has it given me the chance to meet some amazing new people and inspired me to start learning to ride a motorcycle after just a few short weeks, but it’s made me realise that as corny as it sounds, anything in life really is possible. The ultimate start-up, Harley-Davidson was founded by a couple of guys tinkering around in a shed trying to build a bike – who’d have thought over 110 years later they’d be one of the world’s most iconic brands, more than just a brand or a product, a lifestyle in fact, and if that’s not enough, they’ve got their own museum! Inspiration really is an understatement, and I am so grateful for what I can take away from this experience and not only apply to my baking, but burlesque and so much more.
Whilst I continue with my business and many, many extra-curricular activities, I’ve also decided to continue down the automotive road for my next role, which I can’t wait to get stuck into.
To celebrate my new job, and in homage to Harley, I picked up this little beauty of a recipe book, I can’t wait to try them out.
Screw it, let’s eat!
