What Piece of Advice Changed Your Life?
Life is not a dress rehearsal. You only get one shot so make the absolute most out of every minute of it.
How Has Participating in Entrepreneur’s Boot Camp Impacted Your Career?
Babson Entrepreneur’s Boot Camp taught me some fundamental principles about starting and growing a venture. It helped me to understand that experts and academics are not always right. It taught me to trust my gut. It allowed me to see the startup landscape through a different lens, and think about how we could do it differently in Scotland. I became more confident in my role at Entrepreneurial Spark and my belief I could make a difference for other people.
Why Does the World Need More Leaders with an Entrepreneurial Mindset?
The world needs more leaders who know how to grow and scale a business, who understand that tough decisions have to be made as you strive for your vision and you need to take people on that journey with you. The world will be a better place if everyone embraced their growth mindset and had a positive, “go do” attitude whether they run their own business or work within one.
