What would you love to share to encourage other women to start their own business?
There is never a right time or the right place to do something or start something. If you have an idea and you believe in it then you owe it to yourself to give it a shot. Don’t wait around or someone else will come up with the same idea and will give it a go before you. There are always ways to make a start on an idea even if you have another job, even if you are a full-time mum – you just have to believe in that idea and give it a go.
