I love this story because it has all the great ingredients. Hardship, struggle against the odds, underdog, tall mountain to conquer and success in the end. Natalie Ellis faced the Dragons in Dragons Den last year with her innovative product, Road Refresher. They gave her a really hard time, which was actually quite difficult to watch as she had share that she had been a victim of a stroke while running her previous business. She has overcome all to create a very successful business and has conquered the USA with her Road Refresher dog bowl – a place that one of the dragons referred to as the ‘graveyard for British Businesses’. She proved them wrong and is now in a position to build from a very strong business foundation. The sky is the limit for Natalie. Well done, we think you are pretty amazing!
