I was lucky enough yesterday to attend an event held by HSBC for women in business, themed #PressforProgress.
Along with some familiar faces from last years event it was inspiring to meet new women who are running their own business in the locality and hearing their success stories.
One question we were asked which resonated with me was, would we recommend to others to set up in business? The room was divided some said no and others discussed the risks financially but I would say a resounding YES!
The risks are worth it, for a chance to be able to put your ideas and dreams down and make them a reality, I'm a firm believer that it's always better to try than to wish that you had.
So I wish anyone with the drive and commitment to succeed a successful year ahead whether they are male or female!
