The business owner explained how she didn’t get to enjoy watching herself on the show as she was busy getting catapulting her business.

“I didn’t get to enjoy when The Apprentice was actually on TV because I was so busy bringing my product from a kitchen made product to a retail ready product.

“So I had three months to do that and usually it takes people about a year to get a product to retail ready.

“But I knew I had to have something to sell when the final was on TV because eight million people were watching it so that’s an incredible opportunity to sell and make some good capital to bump the rest of the business.
