What inspired you to start your own business?
I have been in business since leaving school; I just felt that it was time for a change. I ran my previous business for over 30 years and you know what they say ‘A change is as good as a rest’.
What has been your biggest challenge?
Knowing when to stop. It’s very easy to keep on working – I tend to lose track of time and suddenly the day has gone as well as half the evening.
What have you learnt about yourself since you became self-employed?
I am very focused and goal orientated.
What has been the best thing about being your own boss?
I love the flexibility and freedom of choice that being my own boss gives me.
If you could give one piece of advice to an aspiring ‘mumpreneur’ what would it be?
Make sure you have fun along the way.
