Ep14 - "So you want to be your own boss?" Featuring Sarah Jones
So you've been thinking of starting your own business? Want to know the difference between corporate and startup life? What are the challenges? When is the time right to jump ship? What’s it really like on the other side?
‘A true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer’. Sarah Jones is living proof of this. Bitten by the bug at just 14, Sarah set up a profitable eBay business importing items from across the globe and selling in the UK, igniting a love for e-commerce and developing an acute business mind in the process.
After a degree in Economics, Sarah started her corporate career at Deloitte. After spotting a gap in the market, she jumped at the chance to start another business and left her job for the challenging and dynamic life entrepreneurialism.
And this is just where the fun began.
