"The great thing is a good mentor will always get you to answer your own questions. They'll ask you the right questions, you'll just have to go away and work on it and come back with an answer. They'll either give you a tick or a cross. That's the scret of a great mentor. They don't tell you what to do, you have to learn for yourself what you should be doing with the information and advice that they give you."
On today's show I welcome candle chandler Rachel Vosper. Now, not many visitors to Barbados end up buying a local candle factory. But after a chance encounter on a beach in 1994, Rachel Vosper did just that. As she built the business up making candles fo Bill Clinton, Pavarotti and Bollinger, Rachel's new-found interest developed into a passion. In 2011 she opened her first store in Belgravia, London, selling candles to a mix of retail, corporate and private clients.
Fast forward to 2018 and Rachel has an amazing opportunity with pop-ups in the Hamptons, LA, Dubai and Hong Kong on the horizon and having developed a scent for Virgin Atlantic.
