What is a typical day in the life of an entrepreneur?

The best thing about running a start-up business is the fact that no day is the same. One day we’ll be out pitching to investors, the next day we’ll be posting something on social media. There is no typical day as an entrepreneur – each day brings new challenges and successes. 

 As entrepreneurs, how do you undertake professional development activities?

Our professional development comes from learning from mentors and advisors, as well as hands-on experience. We believe that the best way to learn and develop is to find a mentor or advisor knowledgeable in the area that you are interested in.
