Bec Clarke is founder of online luxury jewellery site, astleyclarke.com, specialising in precious and semi-precious jewellery. We caught up with her to talk inspiration and her experiences of mentoring ahead of our 2011 campaign.
What fired your ambition to start your own business?
I was brought up in a non-conventional environment, filled with Everest climbers, political activists and artists! I was encouraged to take risks and follow my own path. I had a desire to build something tangible so Astleyclarke.com was born.
What’s been a career high?
There are highs every day and difficulties. I enjoy the rollercoaster, it’s life.
What’s the best careers advice that you’ve been given?
Make yourself indispensable!
What makes a good mentor?
Someone who sets the bar high and shows what is possible. It’s important to nurture talent and commercial confidence in order to achieve above and beyond your expectations.
