Five questions for our CEO and Founder, Anabel Sexton.
1. What's the best bit of business advice you have ever been given?
Someone once told me not to be disheartened if at times I have found it frustrating working for others. It means I'm probably a natural entrepreneur.
2. What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I always wanted to own an art gallery. My passions were always art or sport. I also had a bit of an idealistic streak in me where I wanted to 'make the world a better place'. I guess setting up Boudavida three years ago has given me the opportunity to bring my creative, sporting and charitable elements together quite nicely.
3. Tell us something we never would have guessed about you?
Each year I throw off my corporate suits, put on my wellies and attend Glastonbury festival. I absolutely love it! I do cheat a bit as I live in Somerset right on the boundary of the festival site so I can walk home each night to the comfort of my own bed and a hot shower.
4. Which exercise do you enjoy the most?
I have always been a ball sports player. However recently I have found that I really enjoy running. It's great for clearing your head. Sadly, I had to stop playing most ball sports when I broke my wrist, but I still manage the odd round of golf. I especially love holiday golf in the sunshine with my family.
5. Lastly, what Boudavida item could you not live without?
My dark grey Cwtch Hoodie! It's the comfiest, cuddliest thing that I have.
