As soon as I found out I had won my Twitter feed was on fire - I've gained lots of new followers and have been blown away by the support! I've had an increased interest in what I do and in my website. I look forward to seeing what the future brings!
I was a Police Officer with the Metropolitan Police for 6 years up until June 2014, when I made the decision to focus full time on my businesses, which I had started whilst still being employed. I'm kept busy by running The Vintage Hen House, where I plan vintage inspired hen parties across the UK and then my second vintage inspired business - Mrs Tea - a pop up vintage tearoom.
Don't be a busy fool - a packed diary may look impressive but if you're not earning what you should from it, there's no point.
Don't be afraid to ask - a lot of opportunities I have had with my businesses have come by way of me being brave enough to speak out.
