5-Minute-Interview: I can impress a client within the first 7 seconds

I’m good at………making friends. I am a people person. I also love organising events, part of what I do in my very many businesses.

I’m very bad at……pretending. I tell it as it is. Call a spade a spade, not a big spoon.

The last book I enjoyed reading is……….September Again by Hunter S Jones.

The most surprising thing that happened to me...getting a major tender with the government to supply my products. It has really lifted my business.

A common misconception of me…I dominate conversations. I just happen to have more stories than my friends and they happen to enjoy my stories.

One of my worst childhood fears was…..…rats.

My ideal night out is………dinner, dancing under fireworks at a beach somewhere in Ibiza.

In another life I’d have been…a model. I have the height, I need the discipline though.

If I was a politician, I would……..be reasonable. Why make the rich richer and the poor poorer? I would make sure the poor are catered for.

The best age to be…my current age.

The best part of my job is……..…I get to meet and interact with many people. I make new friends everywhere I go. I have a network of clients and satisfying them is my aim.

My greatest regret is…not laughing more than I do.

Historical figure I most identify with…………Princess Diana.

Living people I most admire………Oprah Winfrey and Alicia Keys.

My greatest achievement is…raising my daughter to be the responsible, respectable young woman she is.

My favourite writer is…Sidney Sheldon.

My greatest possession is…my extrovert nature. It allows me to do my best in business. It's easy to approach a potential client and impress within the first seven seconds.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be…Forgive me, Lord.
