Women Runtrepreneurs — Meet Charmaine Donaldson of Run Amok https://t.co/H2iH5vI6B2
Starting Run Amok Tights was a culmination of lots of different events in my life. I’d run a boutique sportswear manufacturing business for years since my second son was about one and lycra was starting to become more readily available. I’d taught myself how to sew it and made myself some gym gear. People had asked me where I’d gotten it and I started taking orders. I was also working part time as a vet at this stage but lost my job in a business restructure. Once my veterinary registration became due again I didn’t bother renewing it as I was busy enough with the sewing business, which I loved and which suited being a stay-at-home mum.
