Morning! The sun is shining in Kent too!

Julia: tomorrow and sunday! at the Excel for the UK wedding show
Jackie: so what keeps u awake at night with excitement about your biz?
Jackie: if u were to start again, would u do anything differently?
Julia: new flowers, new colours etc can go on for ages!
I’d pay more attention to my pricing from the start…it’s harder to raise prices when you’re established
Jackie: what’s the best advice you’ve been given?
Julia: Advice “i can either be primark or prada never both, remember primark has to sell 10000 prada has to sell 1
