Mentor Mondays: Pukka Herbs

It's that time of the week again - to get inspired by a nugget of wisdom from some of the UK's brightest businesses minds. This time the brains behind one of the UK's fastest-growing brands, Pukka Herbs - Sebastian Pole and Tim Westwell - share their advice for budding entrepreneurs. Watch the video below to listen to their advice.

"It all started with an idea that we wanted to bring about some positive change by connecting people with the power of plants," says Sebastian. "I’m a herbalist and I wanted to make some incredible teas. I came across this advert in a  local magazine in Bristol, where we’re based – Tim had placed an advert."

"Things really took off about 8 months after we started," says Tim. "One of the UK's major supermarkets wanted to take our teas - we were delighted, and never looked back. You just have to go for it – really believe in who you are and what your purpose is, and follow your heart."
