Self description

Female , 50

Business means to me - hard work, dedication, focus, learning new skills and enjoying it. My own business grew from an idea and just over three years later was turning over millions – it was a fantastic success!
I launched my company, Diva Cosmetics, in 2000. I had plenty of business expertise including ten years at Revlon learning everything from brand management to new product development. I quickly secured several lucrative deals with big high street names and in my first year achieved over £1m turnover with impressive profit margins. Success continued with more clients, more staff and in its fourth year a turnover of almost £3m.
Seeing my business develop so rapidly was exciting and I got a tremendous buzz identifying opportunities and making them happen. I was motivated by turnover and the bottom line but I also enjoyed the continuous change in terms of product development together with the toughest part, winning new customers.
Of course, the rewar

Life experiences

Business Start-up

I set up a small business in January 2000 - in my first year of trading we had a turnover of just over £1m. Within 4 years our turnover was just under £3m. At the same as developing the sales, I had to recruit and develop a team of 12.

Early-stages of Motherhood

As a mother of 3, I understand the pressures of being a new Mum or a Mum of a new baby with other children to manage. t is not easy and just being able to talk it through with someone really helps.

Exiting from a Business

When pregnant with my 2nd child, I sold my business. This took over 6 months to execute - but it was a carefully planned exercise which went through smoothly and on top.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

It is essential for everyone to realise that they are not alone. No matter how hard any one particular situation may appear, usually other people have experienced similar situations. Their advice/input may well ensure that the mountain becomes a mole-hill. I have experience in many areas from business to motherhood and divorce/marriage and I enjoy helping others and seeing successful outcomes.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
