A huge increase in followers on Twitter meant I was able to reach more potential customers and business contacts. It also put me in touch with some great likeminded people who were able to offer advice on small business matters.
Ebury Home & Garden (www.eburyhomeandgarden.com) was launched in 2011. Having studied interior design at university, home styling, interiors and decor has always been my passion.
When I finally manage to drag my nose out of a design book and away from the antiques fairs, I enjoy trips to the countryside with my cheeky little boy and super creative designer husband, Richard, who loves to shop as much as me. We dream of one day living the rural life and adapting to a slower pace of life.
Network, listen to advice, learn from others, watch your spending and don't spend unnecessarily, work hard, don't give up and most of all, do something you love.
