As part of the Welsh Assembly Government’s Dynamo project where successful entrepreneurs act as role models in schools and colleges,  I was delighted to spend an hour of my time with year 9 students at Barry Comprehensive School recently.

Having gained their attention after competing with their mobiles, i-phones, and general conversations, I began by giving them my experiences of working as a wrangler in the USA and then starting and running my own business. I was very pleased to find their minds open and found them extremely receptive about the world of Business and Entrepreneurs. Perhaps it was not my story that interested them but the rewards, both financial and personal, that could be achieved by starting and running their own business.

Maybe there was more than one potential Ruth Badger amongst them!
