I can’t quite believe that I’m sat here celebrating the 15th year of Mrs Buckét; it really does only feel like yesterday that I was leaving school armed with £20 worth of black and white flyers and a box of doughnuts (old school, I know!), knocking from door to door to sell my cleaning services to anyone and everyone.
Fast forward 15 years and I now employ 250 people across Wales and The South West and have a turnover of nearly £3m.
It’s been an absolute whirlwind of a journey; no two days have been the same. There have been days where I’m ready to throw in the towel and other days where I’m ready to conquer the world. But I wouldn’t change of any of it.
Not only have the last 15 years taught me an incredible amount about business and entrepreneurship but, arguably more importantly, it’s made me learn a lot about my-self as a person.
