This episode of the show was recorded live at the Birchbox x Oliver Bonas Co-Working space in London on September 7th. Hannah and Sophie Pycroft from Spectrum Collections joined me to talk about their brand of makeup brushes and accessories that has taken social media by storm. The business was an idea born by the pool on holiday, but it hasn't been plain sailing and the sisters talk to me about sticking with it, even when it didn't seem like the best idea, and how a business advisor couldn't quite believe their plans... We talk challenges in business, packing orders in a windowless garage surviving on chocolate biscuits and coffee and why you have to turn everything - even a warehouse fire that destroys all your stock - into a positive.
They also tell me about their best-seller The Glam Clam and the unusual moment when it was born.
