As the child of an entrepreneur, Gillian Woods had always figured that one day she would be running her own show. However when faced with the ‘anticipated headaches’ of being her own boss- the tax implications, the client relations, the marketing- as well as the unclear process of how to begin a design firm, she settled for the life of an employee.
It was never a question of whether she had the talent for it, though. Woods went into Interior Design from a Degree in Science without any previous experience in drawing or design and was able to harness her incredible creativity to excel in her work. When she was finally in the industry, she was personally sought out for private work and consultations outside of her job. As her opportunity increased, Woods’ hereditarily entrepreneurial spirit returned and this time she asserted to act upon it.
