Thanks - he didnt want me to go into hair and beauty for ages he didnt think it was well paid enough or "academic" enough I was expected to be a lawyer (I have a law degree) but since showing him my business plan and that I am serious about it hes coming around to the idea - hes like every other dad he just wants the best for me lol

Celebrity wise I dont really have any idols as such, but people who are self made always impresses me! Someone like Michelle Mone

I don't really have an idol, but like ClaireL, my parents inspire me the most.

When they met, they had nothing (divorced previous partners). They both decided to be self-employed... my dad is a window/door/conservatory salesman and my mum is a financial advisor (one of the top 100 in the UK).

They have both shown me how to be my best and I look up to them.
I think this is why my business has made a profit in the first 6 months.

They both were so disappointed when I said I wanted to "do nails" but they thought I wanted to work for someone else in a salon and said I was "much too smart for that beauty malarkey". When I ignored them and did it anyway, they realised how serious I was and backed me all the way.

Great thread :) xxx

Ahhh thats lovely, good for you following what you wanted to do.
I guess i look to my parents as role models when it comes to some things, they have been married for 41 years and started with nothing and my dad has worked hard to give us the best in life, they are stll "in love" which is nice after all that time so i look up to them in that sense. xx
