What was your best subject at school?
What was your first-ever job?
Working as a Saturday girl in a Wedding Dress shop. Most girls dream job I am sure!
What was your worst ever job?
Honestly, I don’t think I have had any jobs I didn’t like for one reason or another. I had a Saturday job at WH Smith while I was at University which was the only one I didn’t really enjoy – it was an early shift doing the papers, which after a Friday night out at the University bar was never a fun wake up call.

On tape, Aqua- Dr Jones. On CD, Semisonic – Secret Smile.
What is the most entrepreneurial thing you have ever done?
When my friend and I were about 14, we baked cakes every weekend to sell at our church on Sunday. We noticed those hungry adults in search of a sugar fix after a long service, half-heartedly munching on ‘Nice’ biscuits at coffee time and saw our market.
