60-Second Interview

Who was your biggest hero when you were younger?
Scrooge McDuck – loved the way he was able to dive into his pool of money.
What initially attracted you to enterprise?
Wanting my own pool of money and making my own decisions on how to get it.
Can you tell us about the first £10 you ever made?
My mum paid me £40 for doing the ironing.
What has been your biggest challenge so far with your business?
Switching off from talking about my business, staying in touch with friends and knowing what a social life is…
Who is it that keeps you going through any tough times?
My sister Kirsty, my Artist Relations Director Carol and my E-Spark Enabler Anne. Carol and Anne keep my feet on the ground when I come up with outrageously amazing ideas and my sister always knows best ;-)
What is it that gets you out of bed in the morning?
My KC spaniels Dudley & Lilly – usually around 4am for a pee and a biscuit
How do you define success?
Achieving things others believe I can’t.
Where do you see your business in 5 years’ time?
Global… and all my outrageously amazing ideas hugely successful.
If you could give your ‘teenage self’ one piece of advice, what would it be?
I think everything in the past has shaped who I am today, I may want to warn myself about past events but then I might not have the experience and knowledge I have today. It’s the mistakes that shape who we are.
If you could have any one person on your business contact list, who would that person be and why?
Impossible to answer, I believe in collaborating. I’d prefer to have everyone in my phone book. Teamwork makes the dream work.
