which has been a dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence al­to­gether. Ol­lie is 14 and Char­lie is seven; they are seven years apart and see­ing the world through very dif­fer­ent eyes. Char­lie is start­ing to ex­pe­ri­ence life for the very first time and is in awe of al­most ev­ery­thing; Ol­lie, mean­while, is be­gin­ning to see things more as an adult. The par­ent­ing re­quire­ments are so di­verse. A fam­ily day out has to in­clude com­pro­mises for all of us!

Who’s your role model as the per­fect pro­fes­sional? I would say the foot­baller, Ron­aldo. He came from a very un­der­priv­i­leged back­ground and worked hard at what he did best. He used the power of mar­ket­ing to make him­self the most fa­mous foot­baller in the world. He is a per­fec­tion­ist at ev­ery­thing that he does and be­lieves in, and hence, he is some­one I look up to as a role model. If you had one free hour in the day to re­lieve stress, how would you use it? I would call a friend to come over and play squash. When play­ing, there is no time to think about any­thing else — and af­ter­wards, I’m too tired!

Any ad­vice for aspir­ing en­trepreneurs? Do your home­work, speak to as many peo­ple as you can about the busi­ness, and net­work tire­lessly.

What is your great­est dream, pro­fes­sion­ally? I am liv­ing it and in­tend to grow with it.

If you had a mil­lion dol­lars, what would you do with it? I would invest it in prop­erty. My fa­ther has long taught me the value of bricks and mor­tar. — Staff re­porter
