Carola Becker – Life is Good

by SLIB
Very Healthy, Hoping to be Wealthy and Already Very Wise! So last month we went to visit Carola in sunny Willand, Devon. Not only was it in a different county but we went without cake! Shock, horror! But could we really have taken sugary morsels to interview a nutritionist? We decided against it, which was just as well as Kim and I are healthy eating and Carola, it turns out, is unable to eat wheat. Phew, so that was a good call. Carola told us the story of her business over mugs of steaming coffee. 20 years ago Carola developed […]

AJM Accountancy & Bookkeeping

by SLIB
As ABBA once sang “Money, Money Money”!   On the ‘morning after the night before,’ after our fabulous SLiB Christmas party, we grabbed some chocolate yule log and went to meet Michelle Chappell, for coffee, in her offices in Viney Street, Taunton. Michelle explained to us that she started the business in 2006 with her friend Emma. The reasoning behind them starting a business was that Michelle had been recently made redundant and Emma wanted to leave her job. As young mothers they had initially thought to open a maternity and children’s shop in Taunton, however, when they visited Business […]

The stunning window display is full of old world Christmas charm with a whole lot of Hollywood glam thrown in for good measure. Jo lives near Nether Stowey in a beautiful house that she shares with her husband […]

Moonlight Glass

by SLIB
We decided a few weeks ago that we were going to introduce our ladies to the wider world by taking ‘SLiB on tour’ (with cake) and visit each wonderful business in turn. Our first victim/lady we chose was Kate Webb, the founder and creator of Moonlight Glass. So on Friday 9th November we set off in the direction of Puriton to find Kate, with large fruit Danish pastries. We arrived without too much satnav hassle (we are not known for our sense of direction) to find Kate’s beautiful cottage. She welcomed us in and took us out to her large […]
