You should love what you do, and if you don’t, you should look for something that really inspires you…

Founder, Digis

I started in business in 1985. Having worked and qualified in the insurance sector in Loughborough at the time that was my focus at first, but we evolved into personal financial planning.

It’s not an easy job opening up a shop in challenging economic times, and that’s before you even factor in the daily childcare juggle! But each time a child walks into ChocoLit for a book recommendation, or pops in to tell us how much they enjoyed their new book, it makes it all worthwhile. We value each and every interaction with our wonderful customers, many of whom I now regard as friends. I am delighted to be able to offer retail experience and training to my staff and look forward to building a bigger, stronger team so that we can help even more children discover the joy of reading. And the best thing thing of all is that we already feel like an integral part of the community, regularly hosting Storytimes and Readalouds for local schools and nurseries.
