Describe your business in a tweet.

Nutriri is a not for profit that's ending body stigma and disordered eating, coaching mindful eating and body acceptance to all body sizes.

What is your favourite business book and why?

Ryan Holiday's Ego is the Enemy.

A bit of a harsh title it seems at first, but it delves into the naturalness of ego, its uses and observable pitfalls.

Who is your business hero and why?

There are many; anyone who authentically manages to solve real issues by creating business solutions, that pay for themselves and create enjoyable and rewarding careers for others.

What has been your biggest challenge?

Fluctuating mental and physical health has produced lessons to develop personal self care strategies.

Nutriri is my first business so everything is new. But as I meet lots of other entrepreneurs, I realise that everyone else is just making it up as they go along too.

What has been your greatest success?

Recovering from a burn out in 2018, not 'giving in' and being able to increase personal resilience.

Being able to recruit volunteers who are willing to help build the early stages of our infrastructure and be part of us scaling.

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

Don't strive for perfect first time in everything! There has been times I've procrastinated through fear of failing, then realised that failing is the way.

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

We can spend most of our time working in our businesses, and we need an objective view to bring us 'outside' long enough to effectively work on our businesses.

We need to reach out to experts for the areas we don't know enough about.

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

Remembering names first time.

I meet so many amazing people, have the best conversations and connect straight away but without remembering names! it's a game.

How has Enterprise Nation helped your business?

The support from Enterprise Nation is amazing. The platform really allows a network to be built which is something that can seem a bit elusive when starting your entrepreneur journey.

The opportunity to contribute your specialism and have it kept as 'evergreen content' through blog posts and masterclasses is so valuable.
