Tell us about your business tweet-size:

We help companies grow by helping them with their marketing, training them on sales and practical help to import and export.

What has been your biggest challenge?

Learning when to say no...probably the hardest thing to do in business.

What has been your greatest success?

Securing a client overseas in Denmark and it showed the power of word of mouth.

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

Not to have too many plates spinning at the same time.

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

Think about tomorrow as much as today. Prospecting and working needed to be treated the same as they are inexorably linked.

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

Being invisible. I would love to see what was happening at clients, competitors or in the corridors of government to really understand their perspective on business.
