I was a finalist in the 2011 Irish Apprentice show on TV3. Having topped the task leader-board and winning eight out of 11 tasks I finished third and was the last woman standing. While I didn't get investment in my business, I made it right to the end of the 12-week show and for me, had won anyway. It was an emotionally, physically and mentally challenging experience and I think that candidates who take part in this franchised show around the world actually learn so much about themselves. So it's perhaps less about winning and more about taking part.
I made some great friends on the show and learned a hell of a lot about myself. But most of all I got some inner belief that had been missing and perhaps chipped away at over the years. But as they said on the show "JoJo found her Mojo" and that I certainly did.
