What is your favourite business book and why?

The E-Myth: Why Most Small Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About It by Michael E Gerber

Who is your business hero and why?

Oprah Winfrey

What has been your biggest challenge?

My biggest challenge would have to be accepting that I am not superwoman. Building a business takes time. Not everything has to be or can be done now.

What has been your greatest success?

Ooh, there has been much success including a trip to Windsor Castle to meet the Royal Family, winning numerous business awards, and receiving positive feedback from our clients.

Building a business is hard work so overall, the fact we are still in business, seven years later is something I celebrate each day.

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

As an entrepreneur, our personal limitations will limit the rate at which our businesses will grow. The journey through entrepreneurship requires a significant investment in personal development.

A business takes on the personality of the leader; it reflects their strengths and weaknesses, so you need to become emotionally intelligent.

Before you start a business, read books on entrepreneurship, listen to podcasts, network with other business owners.

Don't be afraid to admit what you don't know, ask questions and surround yourself with people who know more about business than you do.

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

It's important to have a clear vision for your business and work your way back to where you are today. Taking advice, therefore, is important.

If you want to know where your business will be in five years, look at what you are doing on a daily basis.

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

The ability to become invisible. It would be so much fun, and I suspect I would get up to a lot of mischief and do some good stuff too!
