“You have to be brave, you have to be committed, you have to work really hard, especially in the early stages. You don't get anything for free, but if you keep at it, the doors are open to you. It doesn't really matter which one Education you have previously enjoyed. My story shows that even as a career changer with Mail Boxes Etc. you can successfully become self-employed and grow continuously. It is important that you ‘do’.”
