I’ve been on such a journey, as both a businesswoman and personally since I was announced as the newest Dragon, it really has been a bit of a whirlwind.

Hello!

The response I’ve had during the past few months since joining the Den has been amazing. I’ve been on such a journey, as both a businesswoman and personally since I was announced as the newest Dragon, it really has been a bit of a whirlwind.

I’ve also received a lot of questions on social media since the programme aired from what made me invest in some of the companies, all the way to what kind of foundation I wear! So, I’ve decided to set up this blog and business journal so I can address some of these questions in more detail.

If you have any questions, feel free to tweet them or leave a comment and I’ll do my best to cover anything that I think people are interested in. To kick-start things, I’ll be discussing how my investments are going, giving some of my top business hints and tips, talking about juggling motherhood with life as an entrepreneur, as well as giving you some lifestyle news and updates.

Basically, if there’s anything exciting happening in the world of Sara Davies, you will be the first ones to know!

Love, Sara
