I used to work in publishing.
I run three shops, 7 days a week. I manage the kitchen ensuring quality and consistency is maintained, do all the ordering and develop new recipes.
How varied it is - no two days are the same. The people I work with are great, and I love cake!
I was interviewed on how to think big but start small when launching a business.
