6 years as part of a management team at a bakery in Nottinghill Gate, London!
5 years, with my own retail business in Camden Town, London.
20 years, founder and owner, installing water features, running one of the largest water feature installation companies in the Bay Area, Pondmagic Water Gardens, based in Santa Cruz CA, building over 500 ponds, fountains, waterfalls and streams!
All these years taught me some very good lessons about the challenges of owning my own business, how to start a business and put systems in place, how to handle and retain good employee’s, how to keep a healthy cash flow and provide good customer support and how to source the right help when I needed it.
It also taught me the great lesson of seeking out support when I needed it!
