Sometimes it’s healthy to take time out to reflect on your own achievements, for to quote Ferris Bueller, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
Once upon a time, two women came together with a shared idea. Looking around, Angela Prentner-Smith didn’t see anyone else in Scotland offering a business transformation service, so she decided to step up and give it a go.
That once upon a time took place just a few years ago and in the subsequent months, a lot has happened. The idea has taken seed and that seed has grown into a business development agency called This Is Milk. Two and a half years and 20 clients later, we’ve surpassed milestones that we could previously only have dreamed of – and this is just the beginning.

This is Milk Founder Angela Prentner-Smith, shares her start-up story and advice for anyone looking to start a new business.
Where did it all begin for you?
Right after my graduation, a position came up, that really threw me into the project world, where we were trying to deliver our services around the needs of the customers. In those days we were just starting to talk about user experience, digital customers and delivering end-to-end solutions in an online way. Over the first 10 years of my career I worked on countless projects, but I was continually frustrated with the lack of customer focus on programs. Me and my co-founder Gillian believed we could do better, so that was when we started to build the concept of This is Milk
