In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneurs Podcast, I speak with 'The Honeymoon Fixer', Britt-Marie Monks.
Britt-Marie has worked passionately from an early age, when she helped in her parent's pub. In her early career she learned some important sales and negotiation skills. But, when she lost her job to a restructure, she decided to take the opportunity to create her own perfect opportunity. Having always had a passion for travel and organisation, the travel industry seemed a good fit. After much research and learning, she found a franchise option that seemed perfect and took the plunge.
Listen to this episode to be inspired by how Britt-Marie has built and grown her business through various health and life challenges, and her best advice for your own business growth journey.
Having a clear Why, ignited my passion. It ensured I stayed motivated and focused on my vision, even when others doubted I could make it work. My solid belief in what I was creating helped make my business work. - Britt-Marie Monks
