The 40 year-old claims that says the secret of being able to keep going through hard times and thrive is having a good team of staff on board. “Its all about getting the right people around you to make it work. I have five on my team, and can have up to 15 to 20 when we hold events. My head housekeeper has been with me for seven years.”
