The Power Of Hard Work

“I believe you can achieve anything if you work hard enough to get it.”

Know Your Stuff

“I always say the best way to advance your career opportunities is to try and get as much experience as you can in the field you want to enter.”

Doubt Is OK

“I think everybody has crazy moments of self-doubt, and I think an element of that is quite important… it’s about creative visualization and challenging yourself and always staying positive.”

Keep Aiming For What You Want

“First time around I felt famous, but now I feel successful.”

Enjoy The Ride

“I can’t imagine what I’d do all day if I didn’t work. I’m lucky that I do something I love, and I am proud as I think it’s a positive message to give to young women: if you want to have a career, and be married with children, then you can. It’s full-on, but it’s doable.”

Be Proud and Keep Going

“I probably don’t stop to think about it as much as I should but I am very proud of myself, but then I’m always looking to the next thing. I’ll always want to better myself.”

Chase It

“I’m a go getter. I’m not sitting back and waiting for things to come to me, I will go out and get it. I’ve never waited for the phone to ring. I will pick up the phone and I will badger people.”

Impossible Is Nothing

“I get excited by being told it’s not been done before or it’s not possible. Why? Let’s find a different way to do it and let’s do it.”

And finally… Create Your Brand

“I want to be as famous as Persil Automatic.”
