Q1. How did you become an entrepreneur? Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I became an entrepreneur through the doing.I had my first business at the age of 18, before I had any concept of what the word entrepreneur meant.I don’t think I actually even ever heard that word until I’d been running my company for a few years. Back when I started (over 20 years ago now) entrepreneurs were people like Alan Bond and Christopher Skase, which wasn’t aspirational for young women at all. These days we have so many amazing female entrepreneurs leading the way as role models. It’s been exciting to have lived through that change. Since that first company I’ve had a few businesses, some with amazing success, and others that have flopped – that’s the life of an entrepreneur!
