Describe one experience you’ve had where you took a huge leap of faith.

Having the self-belief to quit my job and start my own business. I had to quickly develop all the materials, the marketing and inspire people with my vision. In creating new clients to get the business up and running – I learnt all about the need for conviction in what you do, as that’s what drives people to want to be part of the action and get involved.
