One of the most important lessons I have learnt from my years in business is that nothing is possible without hard work. Women today are often juggling family, children and work and this is one of the challenges we face daily.

I've never met Bao Bao Wan but everything I've read about her makes me smile. From her go-getting globetrotting and unusual upbringing which saw her sent off to school in America at age nine, to her outstanding eye for luxury jewellery design - her life has been described as 'a 21st century fairytale' but to me that doesn't quite ring true.

So, the doctor rang me and said that if I did not make an appointment and attend I would be struck off their list of patients.
