What does your business do?
Interior design for residential and business customers
Why did you start the business?
I didn’t go to college but I’ve always been creative and good at making things. So it seemed the natural thing to do.
What is the best thing about being an entrepreneur?
Being able to do what I love every day and being able to make my own decisions
And the hardest thing?
Not getting distracted. It you’re arty like me you can spend 6 hours on Facebook.
Where would you like to be a year from now?
Quite successful. I’ve built up clients and contacts and now have enough experience to be able to prove that I can do most things, even though I don’t have a qualification.
What difference has LYST made to your business?
Having my studio has given me headspace. Three years is a good stepping stone, you should be able to make it by then.
My advice for other entrepreneurs is…..
Get as much help as you can. Get experience and don’t be afraid of working for free.
