I watched my mother transform from a housewife to business woman after my father passed away in 1990. I watched her dress for work every morning and mull over difficult decisions at Sunday lunch or family holidays. When I was younger I vowed never to run my own business, however the influence permeated through to me and starting my own company felt natural as I learnt from my mother. The older I get the more I am inspired by my Mum, she defied her critics and led our family business in the best direction for our future.
I used to love watching Dallas and The Colby’s! Joan Collins is such an iconic and glamorous woman. I don’t know whether its her inner bitch or ability to look fabulous all the time, but this is a woman who knows what she wants and gets it!
Working for Anya Hindmarch was hugely inspiring. She manages a very successful business and home life. To see her brand stand along side historic luxury brands is impressive in such a short space of time.
I read ‘The Return to Love’ by Marianne Williamson a few years ago and loved it! I now follow Marianne and she is running for congress in the United States. Marianne started working in a café and is now pioneering global changes.
Oprah Winfrey is easily one of the biggest success stories of our time. Oprah pulled through a life of adversity to become the richest black woman on earth.
Natalie Massenet revolutionised the way women shop for luxury. Her critics said no one would buy these brands online, how wrong they were!
Chic&Seek are hosting an ‘inspiring’ evening on the 29th April! Rachel Elnaugh entrepeneur and former dragon from Dragons Den will share her perspective that the ‘Future is Feminine’
