Why we live London?

My husband and I love to travel, so London is a great place to be to nurture our love of travel. Our native New Zealand, is a long way away from Europe.

 

Why start a business in London?

Some of my businesses were in existence prior to us coming to live here nine years ago.  I have started several new businesses since living here.  I have clients around the world, so location was not a consideration when establishing my recent businesses.

 

Running your own business

Running your own business is very different to being employed.  The ‘buck stops with you’ at all times as a business owner/entrepreneur.  You are totally accountable for everything that happens in your business – the good and bad.  Self employment is now for everyone.  For those who embrace it, successful business ownership/entrepreneurship is one of the most rewarding parts of life, in my opinion.

 

Three skills budding entrepreneurs need?

Vision.  Love of lifetime learning.  Persistence – never give up.
