On how he came to own Dann Richards Hair & Beauty...

"I worked at the Wacky Hair Company since I left school, when I was 16. Then my boss retired and offered me the business, so I bought did an asset and good will sale from him, rebranded it, changed the name, kept the staff and the clients - luckily - changed everything about it, and opened in November last year."

On the attraction of buying a business...

"The idea of being my own boss and making my own decisions was the attraction, I think. Being able to decide what goes on and decided the products I had and the staff I had, everything about having my own business has always been very appealing to me at the same time as doing the job that I love. It was a no brainer for me. I didn't have to think about it for too long."

On the difficulties of being a new business owner...

"It's a lot tougher than I thought. It's a lot more involved than I thought it would be, which isn't a bad thing. I'm enjoying it; really, really enjoying it. It great to be your own boss and make decisions, definitely.

I'm enjoying it; really, really enjoying it. It great to be your own boss and make decisions

"I think at some point I always knew I always wanted my own business and didn't want to work for someone else, but I definitely don't think I would have done it if the opportunity hadn't been given to me as it was. I think it would have taken me a lot longer to do it."
