Welcome to May’s edition of Smart News!

Tell us about yourself…
I have an eclectic background from boxing (being at one point the only licensed female boxing manager) to the board room. I’m passionate about business, books and Whitstable; if I can combine all three, then I’m in Nirvana!

I set up Smarta to level the playing field; to enable everyone, no matter your background or geographical location access to the best tools and resources to run your business. I’m also pretty proud of the fact that I wrote a bestselling business book “Stop Talking, Start Doing” which was WHSmith’s #1 Bestselling business book for 14 months in a row. I even beat Branson, not often you can say that!

What do you love most about your job?
Meeting people who inspire me to step out of my own comfort zone. It’s easy to get comfortable, but you don’t grow. I like growing, I like a challenge. I love the fact that every month we get to help thousands of people; whether that’s online at smarta.com, our workshops or through providing Smarta StartUpLoans and helping them fund their new venture. It’s nice to do something that counts.

Who is your hero?
My Nan – she is my biggest fan and my inspiration.

What’s next?
Helping as many businesses and entrepreneurs succeed as possible. At Smarta we have been working on finding as many ways as we can to help businesses grow. We have just launched Smarta Business School, our online business training platform. Oh and I have a new book on it’s way, but that’s not til next year.

Top Business Tip?
Hire a cleaner. Seriously… hire a cleaner. Why spend time cleaning and ironing when you could be spending more time on your business or with your family and friends?

SmartPA’s Top Tips

How to outsmart your business trip:

1. Define it’s purpose and outcomes
Whether you are meeting clients, winning new business or networking – setting goals and an agenda for your trip is vital. Not only can you expect your trip to run smoothly but you can make the most of your time there.

2. Pre-plan everything
99% of your trip can be organised beforehand. Why waste money and time organising hotels, restaurants, transport etc. when it could have been sorted weeks ago? That time can be spent on business or seeing the sights.

Finally, always have your itinerary to hand – it’s your travel lifeline!

Who is your hero?
I love Ultimo’s Michelle Mone and the story of how she built her business from the ground, up. I admire her strive to always find exciting new projects and not just coast on existing success.

What is the most important thing SmartPA has taught you?
Passion for your products/services is vital for driving the brand forward.
