I met Caroline through a mutual friend who was singing her praises so I thought I would reach out to find out about her business and how she has become so successful. She is an awesome lady and really has a lot to share to help you with your business.
She has many strings to her bow and created some awesome income streams. She runs many businesses from online ventures and coaching to property and another business in the motor trade.
We talk about many things that will help your business from scaling it up to finding yourself a mentor and more.
Enough from me – check out what Caroline had do say in the interview!

The birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, Britain has been at the forefront of some of the most important developments in engineering history, from tunnel building to the suspension bridge, the steam engine to radio. In recent decades, it has seen its star fall as countries like Germany and Japan have taken the lead, but British innovation remains strong, and if you’re thinking about a career in engineering, it’s a great place to be.
Three leading sectors
As in every industry, some sectors are stronger than others. These are three of the most interesting areas of engineering in which to get involved in Britain.
Case study: Meggitt
Some of Britain’s strongest engineering companies work across a number of different sectors, maximising their crossover potential, and Meggitt is an example of this. Emerging from the merger of a machine tool business with a general engineering company in the 1960s, it went from strength to strength and is now a key player in the aerospace and energy sectors, with an impressive reputation for developing sensory systems. In December last year, it won something of a coup by persuading Sir Nigel Rudd to head up its defence and aerospace board. Sir Nigel has now joined the board at Meggitt and has boosted expectations of the company even further.
The future of British engineering
Engineering is currently worth £1.17tn to the British economy, but it is 9% ahead of where it was at the start of the recession. The only real worry in the industry is that it’s growing faster than the supply of new talent can keep up, so if you’re an ambitious young engineer willing to work hard, your country needs you! Female engineers, who currently make up only 36% of the workforce, are in particular demand as companies aim to be more equal. The world is changing, and it’s today’s young engineers who will develop the systems and build the wonders that will thrill visitors to Britain in the future.
