Please give your name and then say who was your biggest hero when you were younger?
Lizzy Todd. My Biggest Hero was Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney (when I was very young!).
What initially attracted you to enterprise?
I always wanted to work for myself and do something that I actually enjoyed doing. There was a gap in the market for companies offering social media and over time, due to client demand, it has developed into a multi-platform service.
Can you tell us about the first £10 you ever made?
Playing string quartet at a wedding when I was 12 years old. When friends were earning a couple of pounds a week doing a paper round, I earned by first bit of money - around £20 per hour.
What has been your biggest challenge so far with your business?
Growing the business - taking on staff and nurturing them to grow our client base thus allowing me to bring in more clients.
Who is it that keeps you going through any tough times?
My partner - he also runs his own business therefore completely understands.
What is it that gets you out of your bed in the morning?
The challenge of doing a great job for clients and aiming to exceed their expectations.
How do you define success?
When staff, clients and their customers are all happy - happy clients create referrals for more business.
Where do you see your business in 5 years’ time?
I would like to have a team of plus 10 staff with sub teams focusing on different services the business offers enabling me to focus on further growth of the business rather than the day-to-day management of it.
If you could give your “teenage self” one piece of advice, what would it be?
Don't worry so much about everything and anything.
If you could have any 1 person on your business contact list who would that person be and why?
Stereotypically - Richard Branson. mainly because when you read his blogs and what he writes, he has a great work, life balance and it would be great to learn more from someone like that and still be successful.
