Bee Berrie  studied microbiology at University before embarking into the big bad corporate world. So how did she end up baking personalised treats for a living and is the reality as dreamy as it sounds?

Turning her back on a career in corporate communications left her trudging the wet London streets trying to find her first clients, and this interview gives a really deep insight into the realities of saying goodbye to the security of a pay cheque to go it alone.

Insights include:

Be careful with your ‘good’ business relationships. Money is still money and every small business needs to be paid!

A good mentor is worth their weight in gold

You’ll have bad days, but lots of people go through the same thing. Take advantage of a support network if it’s available
