As part of the work I do with Lifestyle businesses I have been passed this media request.
Hello I apologise for contacting you out of the blue but I wonder if you can help. I am working on a series of 6 x 60 minute documentaries for Channel 5, called ‘Starting Up, Starting Over, following six ambitious people as they embark on a journey of a completely new life. Ideally we hope to catch people as they prepare for their big day, from buying the facilities and renovating it to rebranding the existing business or starting it completely from scratch. However, we would like to also hear from those who have just recently relocated and are now building up their new venture. We are looking for families and couples who are planning to leave the comforts of a 9 – 5 and selling up in order to pursue a career in something they are passionate about. My reason for getting in touch with you is to see if you know anyone about to relocate and start a new life. Perhaps they are planning to open a yoga retreat, a coffee shop or gastro pub, gym or health spa. It may be that a new health product is being invented or made. These are just a few examples of the different lifestyle business opportunities that are out there, and to highlight what it takes to make a new venture succeed. We are keen to feature positive and aspirational stories from people who are embarking on their journey over the summer. This is a brilliant opportunity for “life changers” to feature themselves and their new venture on a prime time documentary, and inspire other people in the process. I would really appreciate it if you could forward this email onto anyone that you think might be suitable or interested.
