Meet Heather:

My first job: Babysitters Club
Favourite book: That’s so tough…I’m a bit of a book worm. I’ve got to be close to 1000 self help books by now. I’m fascinate with self-realization and therefore enjoy each and every perspective on getting closer to my essence. I’m going to go with Floor Sample by Julia Cameron – a memoir about her life. As an aspiring writer I found it captivating to read about her journey in such a compelling, vulnerably honest way.
Favourite website: Twitter
Favourite quote: “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” – Rumi
A second favourite is: “In the end, everything will be ok. If it’s not ok, it’s not the end.”
My favourite woman in business and why: Louise Hay. She didn’t really excel in business until she was in her 50′s. and today her brand Hay House is the largest self-help publishing house in the world. I love her because of her conviction around topics that have been labelled ‘airy fairy’ in times where they weren’t as main stream as they are today. Now in her 80′s she still starts new adventures including recently learning to dance. She’s an inspiration in so many ways and she reminds me that “it ‘aint over til it’s over”, in other words, it’s never too late.
My best business advice for new entrepreneurs: Always trust your gut! Don’t be afraid to say “I don’t know”, followed by “I need help.”
