Introducing

Rhona

Tell us a little about your business

I manufacture an all-natural peanut butter which has absolutely no junk in it and whether you prefer smooth or crunchy, it tastes absolutely amazing. Since launching in 2018 I have expanded my range to include a few decadent gourmet flavours with more to follow, so keep watching this space

What is that one thing you do each morning to set the tone for the day ahead?

Most mornings I go for an early run which not only clears my head for the day ahead but keeps me fit all year through.

What do you love the most about being the owner of a local community business

The flexibility is a great bonus and I love meeting my customers and knowing that I am playing a part in making a positive and healthy difference in their lifestyle of my community is also so gratifying

Tell us about the biggest learning in owning a small business

You never have a day off so it really helps to plan each day in advance to ensure that you have a 'start' and an 'end' to the day otherwise it can become all-consuming, albeit very rewarding but persistance definitely pays off

We live in a wild world, what do you think the world needs more of?

Kindness.You never know what someone is going through, so always, just be kind
