Jackie:  If you were to start over again, what if anything would you do differently?

Jackie:  What is success about for you – is success all about money?

Eva:  Success is about doing what you love, being in your element and making a difference.

Eva:  Success is about doing what you love, being in your element and making a difference.

Jackie:  One business mistake you’d like to share with us

Eva:  For some time, I thought that “anybody” could be my client. That is never true and doesn’t help to make decisions.

Eva:  Hi Wendy! Are you listening in?

Jackie:  When did you start to network for your business and how has 1230 TWC been successful for you?

Eva:  In 2000. 1230 TWC has helped me expand internationally, connect with like minded women and learn from them.

Jackie:  Something you would like to promote

Eva:  Storytelling as a tool for change and innovation (rather than marketing and advertising).

Jackie:  If you could live anywhere else, where would it be?

Eva:  I’d live anywhere in Europe, but especially in Italy.

Wendy Mason @WWisewolf
Oh me too RT / I’d live anywhere in Europe, but especially in Italy.

Jackie:  Which quality do you prefer to work with – entrepreneur or maverick?

Eva:  I’m a bit of a maverick myself, I work best with those who need to be pushed or lured out of their comfort zone. 😉

Jackie:  If you were to be one business woman for a day – who would you be?

Eva:  Where to start? Coco Chanel, Benazir Bhutto, @sherylsandberg, @Oprah, Anaïs Nin, Simone de Beauvoir, @melindagates

Jackie:  On your business epitaph – what would it say?

Eva:  She was a pain in the ***, but she made a difference. LOL

Jackie:  Are you a champagne or beer and skittles type of girl?

Eva:  Red wine. Any time.

Jackie:  Where would you be on a rainy day – for your business?

Eva:  Making apple pie. And everyone would be invited. 😉

Jackie:  Smoked salmon or fish and chips?

Eva:  Either one, depending on the occasion.

Jackie:  Thanks so much for your time Eva, hope you’ve enjoyed it, last question coming…

Eva:  Thank you for inviting me, Jackie! I’ve enjoyed it very much.
