Niamh believes there's never been a better time for women to start up a business, thanks to the flexibility of working online.

"Running an online business gives you a huge amount of autonomy, because you can do what you like in between. You can manage your time better, so there's a real opportunity for females in the online space to not only start a business but grow a business.

"You don't need an office or a shop – our little business is still run out of a couple of garages and a store room, yet we export all over the world."

Host Dan Martin and Niamh discuss:

  • how to build an online presence

  • how to solve the problem of copycats

  • why it's important to target the right market
