It’s a daunting enough decision to give up the stability of well-paid employment to start up a business the first time around.

But after hitting a dead end with your venture, it takes a special determination to wade back into the fray and give it another crack.

Today, Nicola Mills, founder of the Pacific Retail Group, explains the lessons she learned from her first start-up, Kick Juice, and how she applied them to a business that grew into a $9 million entity.

Meanwhile, mentor Fred Schebesta returns to talk domain names and we look at the start-up potential in focusing on consumers’ increasingly busy lives
