I value freedom, growth and expansion ... (and my amazing family and friends of course) I also love to have fun, make my friends laugh and hang out at the gym. If you really knew me, you'd know that I love drinking tea, I'm always trying to figure out solutions for everything, I love the band Coldplay, drive a Mini Clubman, I've had some of the best mentors in the world, I am obsessed with business and self development books and I used to be a lawyer before I became an Impact driven Entrepreneur. I hate paying for parking and I love finding short cuts on any journey. I love my life and the amazing people I've met on my entrepreneurial journey and if we haven't met already, I do hope we get to soon. Much love Claire 💞
