What piece of advice do you wish you had known when starting out?

Everything will take longer than you think, but just keep making small gains and it will pay off.

Why do you consider long-term strategic advice important to business success?

Without strategy, it is hard to figure out what you need to prioritise each day. If you have a big vision you need the strategy to match it, otherwise it is harder to make it happen.

If you had a superpower what would it be and why?

To be in two places at once!
