My work life blend

Why are you a Business Chicks member?

Because the power of your network cannot be underestimated.

What's been the biggest pinch-me moment of your career?

Too many to count! Helicopters, red carpets, celebrity parties. Probably the biggest thrill of all, if I'm honest, is running my own show.

How do you deal with setbacks, failures and fear?

One step at a time.

What's the best piece of advice you have ever received?

Bite off more than you can chew and chew like crazy.

Which women inspire you and why?

Oprah Winfrey - she understood the power of storytelling with heart long before the male-dominated corporate world caught up.

What's been the biggest challenge you have faced and how did it help shape who you are today?

Recovering from an eating disorder that nearly killed me. There's nothing like staring death in the face to show you how to live.

What are you really good at? (We know this one's hard, you guys! As women, we tend to talk about what everyone else is good at. But now it's your turn.)

Leading.

What makes you happy?

Connection.

What's your definition of success, and how will you know when you've got there? (Go on, aim high!)

I've got a one hundred million dollar business to build, but success is enjoying the journey to get there.
