Nikki: You can find out more about me at http://t.co/UZJ0BUUo – have been in business for 19 years
Jackie: all essential in today’s technology and maximising our marketing opportunities. If u were 2 start again would you do anything differently?
Nikki: I wouldn’t have hired offices and staff when working from home/remotely is just as effective and more fun!
Jackie: excellent – that’s helpful for everyone – is success all about money for u Nikki?
Nikki: no but it helps J
Jackie: how would u overcome the loneliness of remote working?
Nikki: I don’t really get lonely – I have a great community of friends online, and good friends offline too
Nikki: Online forums, Twitter etc and plenty of phone calls keep me from becoming a complete hermit
Jackie: I’m sure u’ve had lots of advice during those 19 years, what’s the best advice ever?
Nikki: no-one will ever give you anything in this life – you have to work for it
Jackie: If u were to b one businesswoman 4 the day – who would that be?
Nikki: Happy being me, but i’d like to step into Jordan’s shoes and strip away the fakery, show the businesswoman
Jackie: that’s so true re Jordan, would be great if young women could see her business acumen @MissKatiePrice
Nikki: yep, whether it’s bcos she’s surrounded herself with the right ppl or off her own bat, she’s done well
