If you're working with family, sometimes it's difficult but sometimes it's a great pleasure to work with my sons. Before we opened Nandine, they were studying and would help out but now they're involved in every detail.
My advice to other people starting their own business is do lots of research before starting and know what you're getting involved in. Before we opened Nandine, I was trying out new food and getting so much good feedback, it was crazy. I didn't know whether to prepare food or focus on the restaurant. Even when I was making coronation chicken sandwiches in Elephant and Castle, I was putting my own twist on it and people loved it. So, my advice is to know what you're doing and from there you can choose your path.
