Enterprising Women has given me the confidence to re-face the work place after a long absence, but not as an employee – as my own boss!
Jan started the business selling from home as a way to support herself and two small children following her divorce.
Having slowly started her own sprayshop and then bought out the cabinet makers supplying her, she amalgamated the two and started a serious expansion plan thereafter.
She is a passionate believer in promoting UK manufacturing which she includes in radio work for local BBC stations and Cathay Pacific among others.
Her company has won several awards, but personally she has won
- the National Sales Decade of Excellence Award,
- the Institute of Directors East of England Enterprise Award
- and Anglian Business Person of the Year.
