Life After The Apprentice And My Advice To Budding Entrepreneurs

The Apprentice gave me the platform I needed to raise investment to set up HRS, however it is not for everyone. Don't forget The Apprentice is a TV show. It may have worked for me but it is the lessons you develop day to day, and the person you are, that really makes the difference.

Meet Tamara Lohan: The "Mrs" in Mr & Mrs Smith

I already knew snippets of the Smith story - that Lohan created the boutique hotel website with her husband, for example, or that she had earned an MBE for services to the travel industry. What I didn't know was that she had recently became an angel investor, that she finds time to do the morning school run every day despite working full time, and that she never set out to be an entrepreneur.

Last Sunday it came down to two candidates, Joseph Valente and Vana Koutsomitis who both became favourites halfway through the season as they showed great leadership, business prowess and teamwork. Yet despite their qualities, Alan Sugar was only interested in one thing and that's their business plan.

Joseph is going to be successful, I don't think anyone watching the show would question this, he would charm his way into the best of any situation. He is very likeable too and I wish him all the best.

I do feel Gary's team was somehow on a road to failure as soon as the nut allergy was mentioned, that no matter what happened from that point they were lining up Lord Sugars puns about the mother going out on a stretcher etc. Allergies are a serious issue of course but no doubt the options were limited and drama expected.

Ok so this episode was a combination of two of my favourite parts of The Apprentice. The abroad part and the scavenger hunt. Essentially the task is the most simple. Find everything on the list for the cheapest price. The team that doesn't gets penalised.

So I expected the evening to be slightly emotionally charged, to watch a new set of candidate battle it out, where you had been twelve months ago. On the contrary I think it taught me how much had happened in my life and business since to make one year seem like a lifetime.

People Love 'The Apprentice', But Do They Love Business Itself?

Laurence Stellings | Posted 14.10.2016 | UK Entertainment
Laurence Stellings

Fewer than one-in-five (17%) feel they have a good understanding of how big businesses operate. A third (34%) go as far as saying that big business "exists in a different world to me". Perhaps part of the appeal of The Apprentice is that it offers some type of insight, however contrived, into a world few understand.

The announcement that Claude Littner will be Nick Hewer's replacement as one set of Lord Sugar's eyes and ears in The Apprentice has more than likely struck fear in to the group of hopefuls that are looking to have the chance to win the £250,000 investment.

I feel very lucky to have been so well received by the great British public but I can't imagine everyone's experience is the same. So my top tip has to be: be yourself! Yes, it's a cliché, I'm afraid, but it's true. If you get on the show, it's a great opportunity...

We didn't get to see the full contents of the business plans - it wouldn't make great viewing to be fair - but we were offered a sneak peak of some of them, including poor Soloman's, complete with two pages of brand logo concepts and not a lot else, to which he got totally annihilated by veteran Apprentice interviewer, Claude Littner.

Does 'The Apprentice' Need to Learn Some New Skills?

Peter Rolton

To get ahead and be successful, there is no doubt that you have to be a strong and confident leader with clear idea about what you want and how you're going to get it. To remain successful, however, the narcissism that many of them seem so proud of will need to take a back seat to make way for more rational, big-picture thinking.

So I hear that one of this season's celebrity trends is 'Normcore'. This fascinating departure from glamour is to be 'deliberately ordinary' in how you present yourself. You might have nondescript, untidy hair and possibly a rather anonymous pair of glasses.

We are lucky as women that in this day and age it isn't as hard as it used to be to make a strong stand in business and high posts... With regards to Luisa, some would say that she uses the title of businesswoman to be taken seriously but use still her sexuality to become popular. Is this really the right way to go?

Here's the thing... most people who scoff at Hull, have never even been. And I guess that's the way life works, if a bandwagon rumbles past us, we sometimes can't help but jump on it. If someone, or some place strives, we can't seem to wait to knock them.
