What made you decide to start your own business?

I saw a tight and unfulfilled gap in the B2B market, and at that time employment in large enterprises was totally failing to inspire me so I had to eventually take the plunge.

What’s been your biggest success in business to date?

Getting to see people I had employed into our business truly start to run it and fulfil their true potential as managers and leaders.

What’s the best business advice you’ve ever been given?

Trust your gut instinct.

Which entrepreneur inspires you the most?

Many, in fact anyone that has had an idea, stopped talking about it, and actually had the courage to start doing it.

Which 3 qualities do you think are most important to have as an entrepreneur?

Vision, empathy & patience.

What business tool could you not live without?

The internet.

Why are you an Ambassador for WeDO?

I have been very lucky in my business life and continue to enjoy the opportunity to learn from and be inspired by the kind of smart people that Wedo attracts. Sharing war stories and dreams creates a cool environment to be in.
