What triggered your decision to start-up? Did a bad experience at work or a chat with an entrepreneurial friend inspire you to take the plunge? Or had you long-planned the launch of your business?

Richards says this “life-changing event” pushed her into realising her dream of starting up, with the business pulling in $360,000 revenue in its first year. Today, she explains how she did it.
