ESC’S QUESTION: “HOW CAN I START SOMETHING I LOVE?”

ROBIN KENNEDY’S ANSWER:

“The two bits of advice given to my father by his first boss were along the lines of:

  2. I’m not going to check up on your work. You’ll find out the hard way if you get it wrong.

I think both of those are pretty good maxims for people running their own businesses.”

Robin Kennedy – Ex-banker. Co-founder of WEXO.
