'I would absolutely recommend talking to the team to anyone thinking of starting their own business. If you have ideas or concepts. They’ll be able to advise you of the aspects you need to think about and how to move forward. If you decide that running your own business isn’t for you after all, you’ve still learnt valuable skills and experience to add to your CV.'
