"I wanted to have the option of running a business the way I wanted it to be run, being able to supply a professional yet simple service to clients who need HR support. I started the business in April of this year after being made redundant for the second time within a year, so I decided as a result of that I wanted to do something a bit different, something professional but still being able to manage my family commitments. I’ve lived in Tunbridge Wells since I was 8 years old, so born and bred more or less and I've never really explored the business side of the town and I feel like I'm really doing that now"
