What one piece of advice would you give to your 20-year-old self?
When something bad happens and it seems like the end of the world – it’s actually not. Sometimes bad things have to happen to force us to change course and lead on a new adventure.
You find £20 down the back of the sofa, what do you spend it on?
A takeaway and a night off from cooking.
If you could spend 20 minutes with a successful or famous businessperson, who would you choose and why?
Lord Sugar, I’d want to know why his production team insist on accepting these idiots on his TV show, and I’d tell him to try middle aged, overweight , normal people who have a brain!
If you could be stuck in a lift with any two people, who would you choose and why?
Hugh Jackman and Bradley Cooper – we’d make beautiful music together!
Where do you see yourself in 20 years time?
Spending my time between UK and my holiday home in Spain. Still working , I cant imagine not!
What’s been your personal highlight since joining 2020?
Having the confidence to recruit two people to help in the business.
What’s the best thing about being a member of 2020?
Meeting a fabulous group of ladies who have helped me to grow my business.
You have 20 days holiday to spend away from your business, where and how will you spend it?
In Florida, on the Gulf Coast. In a little apartment on the beach watching the dolphins swimming off shore and having a glass of wine on my rocking chair watching the sunset.
What will you be doing at (the time) 20:20 tomorrow evening?
Battling to get my daughter Grace in bed! I’ll probably be on my fourth trip upstairs to check for monsters in the wardrobe.
What advice would you give to a woman starting out in their first 2 years of business?
Don’t expect to make money overnight. Work hard and meet as many people as you can. Don’t sit and hide behind your keyboard.
You can have 2 minutes time with a famous person. Who would you choose to spend it with and why?
Beyonce – she is amazing!
Tell us 2 things the rest of the 2020 members might not know about you.
I always wanted to be a pilot and by the age of 18 I had clocked up 20 hours in lessons.
I have done loop the loop and other Ariel stunts in a light aircraft!
