High-Energy , Successful , Motivational
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
