Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I was a professional singer for over 20 years and I wanted to give my life experiences to help others on their career path in the entertainment industry.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I worked on a project with my client Denise Fergus the mother of murdered toddler James Bulger. I finalized a book deal that became a 1 Sunday times bestseller for 13 consecutive weeks and also an ITV documentary with Sir Trevor McDonald which had over 6 million viewers.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Take time for yourself, be real, don’t promise what you can’t deliver, and just remember, however famous a client may be, treat them as a normal human being, not a paycheque – they have feelings, needs and still need the occasional hug!
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My dad was a massive inspiration to me. He was a professional comedian off TV for over 30 years – he taught me to keep working hard despite the knock backs, how to cope with the highs and lows of this industry but most importantly never to “lose or forget the person you are”.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Yes, I help many charities as much as I can. I’ve given lots of time for free to help people, I never think of the money – it’s more about watching people succeed.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
My dad had many knocks backs as a comedian as well as the many successes but he always used to say to me ……. how every high you reach in life, be a star ….. not a diva!
