1. What was your reaction to winning the overall Entrepreneur of the Year® award?
Every time I get asked this particular question I always have a different response. The reason for this is that I experienced a range of emotions, all of which were extremely positive. Overall, I felt overwhelmed and incredibly blessed to have a team such as mine – as the award would not have been possible if it wasn’t for them.
