Zoe Newcombe is 34 years old and mummy to 2 gorgeous girls Harriet aged 4 and Lexie 8 months. She is the Owner of her import business Opal Products and founder of Connection Events.
My day usually starts around 6.30am when I’m up and getting myself and the children ready for the day. In between breakfast and chasing round the house I usually fire up my laptop or check my iPhone for e-mails. 8.15am and we are off to take Harriet to nursery and then back home to my office to start the working day. I’m fortunate at the moment that Lexie still has a morning and afternoon nap so I get loads done whilst she is sleeping. My main concentration during the day is Opal Products and predominantly making sales calls to find new stockists for our products. Other things that I deal with are packing orders, taking deliveries of new stock and when possible (often with Lexie in the car too!) I love doing spec visits, calling in on potential stockists to see if they are interested in what we do. I get great success from this and it gives me a real buzz especially when I get orders there and then.
