1.     HARDEST LESSON YOU LEARNED IN BUSINESS?  
You have to endure the failures and hardships to truly learn the best way to run your business and there is no easy way other than to keep getting back up over and over again – you have to work hard to create your own luck and opportunities.

2. THREE THINGS THAT DEFINE YOUR BUSINESS? 
Fitness – learning to make it fun and something you want to do again and again and educating others to train smartly and get real results

Defying the odds – always do the things that scare you or the things you think you can’t do yet

Inspiration – encouraging people to live bravery no matter what and chase even the biggest goals

3. FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT? 
Corner Club, Leigh on Sea – perfect place to get my creativity flowing and work down over coffee or catch up with friends

4. WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU?
I have a lot who do but for me its any woman who overcomes adversity, stares fear in the face and goes for it and isn’t afraid to be herself and go after what she wants.

1. HARDEST LESSON YOU LEARNED IN BUSINESS?   

Work-life balance. Planning my time is essential, not only do I need to make time for my clients and their needs, I also need to ensure that I make time for myself, to relax and unwind at the end of each day. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in work, especially when you work for yourself.

2. THREE THINGS THAT DEFINE YOUR BRAND OR BUSINESS?

Personal, Quality, Consistency

3. FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT?

I like to support local businesses and my favourite is Patisserie ‘Brione’ in North West London, where I live. Run by a French couple, who make the most amazing pastries and chocolate!

4. WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU?

Jo Malone for creating one of the most iconic British brands. I love that she started her career from home as a facialist, mixing her own products to use and to sell to her clients.  I admire that after stepping down from the  business due to loosing her sense of smell through treatment to breast cancer, she returned to do what she loves best and created Jo Loves.
