What skills do you have that help you run your business, or what skills would you like to develop?
My day job is a web project manager so my skills are:

List five people, businesses or websites/blogs that keep you motivated and inspired, and why?
The sartorialist: Fabulous, fabulous style notes (not fashion) and my word does he get about!

Eating Asia: Armchair eating and travelling at its best. I love the enthusiasm and reverence shown for every type of food written about. The details about condiments, atmosphere and locations make you think you are also sitting at that plastic topped street cafe table in Penang!

Lola rose: It was seeing this range of jewellery in London stores that cemented my passion for making jewellery in 2000.

Palas: And this fabulous woman is doing the same in Australia!

Chris Chun: Chris is living the dream. He is travelling, getting inspired, living somewhere fabulous and making beautiful things.
