Find out more about my business.

What's been your most outstanding business achievement?

Building my business and brand from scratch. This process started in 2006 from an idea that was a little out of the box. My business has been growing from strength to strength and evolving ever since while taking me on an exciting journey.

I love my repeat clients, who I have also seen evolve with each journey.

What are your top 3 networking tips?

  • Be generous with your time.
  • Try to assist others where you can.
  • Follow up on any contacts you have made.

What's been your most successful marketing strategy?

Internet Marketing has been very successful, however I must say that referrals and repeat clients have proved to be the most successful so far.

What can't you live without?

My freedom.
