In this episode
In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneurs Podcast, I speak with serial entrepreneur, Lara Morgan, about how, over 17-years, she built a high-end toiletries business that she sold for £20 million, and how that experience, coupled with some powerful advice from her Mum, lead her to create her current business 'Scentered', and to invest in businesses that bring more wellness into the world.
Growing up in Hong Kong the daughter of two entrepreneurs gave Lara the inspiration to start her own business, but not before building a career in sales that gave her important skills that helped fuel her later success. It was the recession of '91 that prompted Lara to start her first business. With few jobs available for sales people, she decided to make one for herself.Listen to this episode to learn more about Lara's journey to date, and her insights and advice for other business owners looking to build success - without sacrificing their wellbeing.
If you feel passionate enough to change something, you have the potential to create a successful business. - Lara Morgan
