Jackie: I know you’re moving at the mo, so v busy time 4 u, r u able to read any biz books?

Jackie: So, what is success abt for u Julie? Is it all abt the £
Julie: Not just about money, but money certainly makes a smoother life possible. Then you can fill it with fun, friends and family!
Jackie: some exciting changes 4 u – if u were to start over again, wld u do anything differently?
Julie: Remember that business is all about profitability and keep my eye on where the money is coming from. Cash makes vision possible.
Jackie: That makes much sense! Who’d b around u’re dinner table of positive thinkers?
Julie: Richard Branson I like his ‘screw it, let’s do it’ attitude/my mate @JeremySpiller whose passion makes me look positively wilting

Julie: Champagne, definitely… with an afternoon tea thrown in, for good measure.
Jackie: what’s the scariest thing u’ve ever done?
Julie: Standing in front of 130 people to launch the first edition of The Essential Business Guide. I suddenly realised what I was doing!
Julie: Luckily, it *was* shared… and the rest is my business history
Jackie: was that around the time of 1230TWC Conference? our first meeting – u & I?
Julie: Yes, you’ve got a good memory! I ‘had my vision’ about business info, and then panicked that it might not be shared!
Jackie: about 2004? & u were terrific, I was awe-struck! Something u’d like to promote?
Julie: Just: business owners are too busy to read bad info so make sure to learn from a good source. I kissed too many business frogs!
Jackie: last question coming up Julie… #bizitalk
Julie: That went quickly! OK, I’m ready
Jackie: Best biz advice u’ve been given?
Julie: You’re not born knowing how to run a business, find out as much as you can from different sources & network with other biz owners
Jackie: let’s squeeze in 1 more.. which do u prefer to work with – entrepreneur or maverick?
Julie: Entrepreneur (not the selfish type, though). Entrepreneurial, in my mind, means thinking differently and being brave

Julie: Normal service is now restored on my Twitter feed. Hope my #1230KISS interview didn’t litter your stream and drive you mad, lovely followers
