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!
Wendy started her first business at the age of 18 with her fiancée and by the age of 25 was Finance Director of a 1 million turnover furniture manufacturing business with 25 staff. Many years later, and after raising four children alongside holding various FD positions across a range of industries, Wendy set up her own business support company in 1999.
She has, with the help of four staff, drawn down more than £500,000 in grants and loans for businesses in the past 5 years. She is now Vice Chair of the NWDA Women’s Enterprise forum and board member of the Guardian Angels Company Community and Business Partners and also of the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce.
