There’s never a dull day being an entrepreneur. The variety of roles you do in your day to day job is exceptional. Some people don’t like the huge number of hats that you have to wear. What I have learnt over the years in business is that you don’t have to be an expert in all of them.

Studying in the evening is a great way to pass the cold, dark nights and an excellent opportunity to learn a new skill, language or maybe even develop a hidden talent, as well as make new friends and socialise with like minded people. This is how I started my journey into the world of upholstery over 9 years ago.
