Property & Business Champion
One of my passions in my business and property life has been to support others who are starting out in business or property and I do this in a number of ways – often on a pro bono or expenses-only basis.
Looking back at my own personal journey so far, I particularly support women or girls like me who come from a low income background, who may come from a low income area such as the Valleys in South Wales, and who will face obstacles caused by lack of financial help or no contacts.
While I’m a firm believer that hard work, commitment, enthusiasm and perseverance will take you where you want to go – that’s not always easy when you are held back by socio-economic factors which are not your fault. It’s not rocket science to understand that these disadvantages can make life tougher for anyone, regardless of their particular talents.
