Worst business moment: Before starting The Luxury Network, I owned a small chain of luxury hair and beauty salons. I had an opportunity to go national (through a national chain) and didn?t accept the deal. I look back on it now and wonder what would have happened.

Proudest business moment: Definitely launching The Luxury Network and our international success.
