  1. Having spent most of my working life in permanent employment, it took being made redundant to make me brave and set out on my own. A decision I have never regretted even though it is scary and hard work. I had always dreamed of running my own business and I am developing lots of new areas in my life so I find I am interested in life again. You see ‘the sparkle’ had left me and I wanted it back!
    Anyone else felt the same? and thanking God for the push.
