Annabel Karmel: How I started my business

Mother of three Annabel Karmel MBE is the UK's number one children's cookery author, and a leading child nutrition expert. Her 39 books have sold over four million copies worldwide, and if you were raised in the 90s you probably grew up on her recipes! Annabel will launch her 40th book on 12th February 2015 - Mumpreneur: The complete guide to starting and running a successful business.

This video was filmed at #VirginWOW, where Annabel spoke about her journey, from personal tragedy to finding her niche, and the importance of always persevering. As she says herself, "Failure is the opportunity to begin again - just more intelligently." It's about thirty minutes long, and it's an invaluable and inspiring insight into how one of the UK's top female entrepreneurs got to where she is today.
