My guest on this week’s episode of ScaleUp Radio is someone who didn’t plan to be where they are - and even now still has doubts about their ability in the role.
However, after listening to Faith Guest, the MD of Tools of the Trade a distributor of hand tools and tool storage, and her story - you’ll appreciate the journey she’s been on and the challenges she’s faced.
There is so much to Faith that, as you’ll hear at the end of our conversation, we are going to have to get her back on to talk through the things that we didn’t get time to talk about in this episode!
Thankfully, there’s still an incredible amount of value to be found in our conversation. We covered an awful lot of ground, including
- the strength in being honest, and holding your hands up to say ‘I don’t know’
- the challenges of dealing with Europe post-Brexit, and how you need to put the work in to get it right
- finding the balance between being customer-focused - and doing things that affect profitability
- the process of taking over a company at a young age, as well as being a woman in a male-dominated industry.
This is a fascinating and educational discussion that we had with Faith with plenty of takeaways for you and your business, no matter where you are on your scale up journey.
