Who are you?

Nikki Espiner
What do you do?
Owner of the business A Cat, A Mouse & A Bumblebee (.com)

When did you establish your business?
September 2011

What made you start your own business?

I have two children (1 who is 4 and 1 who is 9 months) & I have a real passion for new and exciting children and babys products. I wanted to start something to benefit the children & try and give them the best after we have been through a rather rough year as a family I felt inspired to do something good for them.

What do you love about working for yourself?

You inspire and drive yourself and so seem to always push yourself that bit more.
Is there anything you do not like about working for yourself?
It takes up alot of your free time. My other half and I have spent nights & free time start on the computer as we wanted to change/finish something.

Is there anything you would go back and do differently if you could?

I think you always look back at certain things & say I would have done that or that differently but saying that those mistakes then help you learn for next time & inspire you to do it better next time or to put it right. Rather than change what I have done, I try & learn from it 🙂
Nikki donates some of her profits to rainbows :O)
What advice would you give to a Mum considering starting her own business?
Do it! life is so short & trying to start your own business is so fulfilling (hard work no doubt! but so worth it!.
