North Balgowlah, NSW
What do you do?
I’m the director and founder of Down That Little Lane.
What’s your latest discovery?
Chocolate-covered goji berries. Yummm!
My five must-haves…
iPhone, Elizabeth Arden 8-hour Cream, vanilla candles, lululemon track pants and chocolate.
Working from home can be challenging. What keeps you motivated?
My passion to succeed! I have been self-employed all my life so I know rewards don’t come for free. Plus, I know if I snuck off to bed it would cost me a day on the weekend!
What’s your advice for women wanting to start their own business?
Research. Know your market and be sure you have something unique or something that is better than the rest. If there is a substantial cash investment, be sure you can last a year on the wages that will be coming in because most businesses spend the first year (at least) in debt.
You’re known for your amazing art collection. Who’s your framer?
I frame a lot of things and my framers are sensational. I use Australia in Focus.
