What’s Dragons’ Den done for Scoff Paper?

What’s Dragons’ Den done for Scoff Paper?

Well, it’s like six weeks or so since I was on Dragons’ Den so I thought I’d check in with a little update. 

It’s been a crazy few weeks to come to term with but I thought I’d answer a question that I’ve been asked many times over the last few weeks.

What’s particularly mad to some people is how secretive the whole experience actually is. I had to sign all kinds of agreements that meant I didn’t tell a soul about what was going on, which was particularly mad seeing as it was something like nine months between filming and my episode airing. 

So, even my closest friends had no idea until I was officially allowed to mention it the week before it aired – so I’ve been asked a whole lotta questions ever since.

But the main question that everyone seems to wanna know about a crazy edible dog card lady going into Dragons’ Den is what the response has been like.

First thing I’d like to address is that unfortunately, I’ve not all of a sudden become some A-List celebrity… Which I was kind of hoping I would be.

I’ve also not, all of a sudden, become stinking rich… Which, again, would have been nice.  

But what has happened is this…

We’ve got lots and lots of orders, enquiries and a crazy huge amount of support for what we do.

I’ve had around 3,000 private messages that have taken me a long time to get back to. These messages range from people sharing their dogs Scoffing on cards to people who don’t even have dogs just wishing us well and saying some really kind things.

I know this is not the professional stance on how things probably should be (like when have I been a consummate professional?!) but before my episode aired, I was genuinely terrified as to how I would come across in front of millions of people.

I had no concerns as to how the business may look or the products that we make – which is a bit odd seeing as it’s a show all about business and products – no, my main concerns were how I’d look and how people might be very mean about me.

But you know what, it wasn’t like that at all.

I’ve had so many people go out of their way to say such nice things to me and it really has been a truly humbling experience.

I work very hard and I felt like I was just going to get grief for some other reason – but instead I’ve had people calling me and inspiration. Compliments are always hard for me to take, but this has been such an overwhelming amount of positivity that has come my way and words can’t explain how happy that has made me feel.

So if you’re one of those who has taken the time to message or make an order, your support truly means the world to me.
