IN THE SPOTLIGHT
In the Spotlight is the place where community members from across the world drop in for a chat and a coffee to share their business, experiences (good and bad) and top tips with you. Each and every amazing entrepreneur has as some time been inspired by another overcoming the odds. Here we have a whole host of them for you to learn from and I always pop in their details so if you want to drop them a line, you can! They're nice like that.
So grab a cuppa, a G&T or a green juice and take five minutes to yourself. Go ahead, we'll wait...
