How many of us have dreams to make a change in our lives, but find it’s never the right time for one reason or another? The late Dame Anita Roddick; founder of The Body Shop, started the first shop out of necessity to make a living, but ended up growing it into a business that is now present in over 60 countries. In this interview she explains how spotting opportunities and learning from fellow pioneers is far more important than it being the right ‘time’.
