From Actress To Entrepreneur: Marj Hogarth Has Launched Her Business

After thirty years of acting, Keith Brymer Jones’s wife began a new venture as a designer. She launched Hook and Hatchet, a British brand producing practical, contemporary, and sustainable handbags.

The idea for the company came during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hogarth was desperately searching for something creative to fill her time.

The lady initially started making bags from coffee sacks before working with vintage clothing and blankets. Today, her online business is incredibly successful, with products selling out soon after being put on display.

Marj credits her success to her spouse, Keith, who gave her helpful business advice. She also advises other women entrepreneurs to value what they want while launching a business.

I’ve known people who started businesses, became successful incredibly quickly and it’s made them deeply unhappy because they felt as if they were creating a monster they couldn’t control.

We all want different things in life but the most important thing is to value what YOU want.
