From the idea stage, through to research and implementation, it took me 5 months to go live. It would have been quicker but I could only devote 3-4 hours per day max to it.
I was working on the set up of the business while working 3 days per week and on the days I had off looking after the children!
It was so hectic on the days leading up to the launch date. I started working till midnight because I was determined to hit the deadline I had imposed upon myself. The excitement was the motivation for me.
