What is the best part/your favourite thing about your role?
Seeing the joy from business owners when they realised their potentials.

What do you find most rewarding when helping small businesses?

Helping them fining solutions.

What is your favourite inspirational quote?
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate….. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, to be gorgeous, talented, and fabulous. Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won’t feel insecure around you.
We are born to make manifest the glory of God within us. And as we let our light shine, we consciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

What is the best piece of advice you can give a potential or existing business owner?
If you don’t try, the answer is always no

What is your favourite thing to do outside of work?
Reading and singing. I have been singing for the past 40 years! (opps, there goes my age!)

What’s your favourite line to use as an ice breaker when meeting someone new?
“Hi How are you?”

Tell us your best joke:
Actually, I think I am quite a dry, boring person so there is really not much joke I can give you
