@SaijaMahon Can you tell us about your background and what inspired you to become an #entrepreneur? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures I'm from a family of entrepreneurs, therefore starting my own business came fairly naturally to me #MIVReveals

@SaijaMahon What were the biggest challenges when setting up your companies @mahondigital @thecaviarclubfi @lonelyrobotweb?  #MIVReveals

@Myincventures Growing the businesses with no funding was hard work, but dedication and persistence will pay off eventually! :) #MIVReveals

@SaijaMahon What would you say is your proudest #business moment so far? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures Being recognised by Google and selected as one of the Top 50 Women in Search last year and this year was amazing #MIVReveals

@SaijaMahon Fantastic achievement! How many hours a day do you work on average? #MIVReveals

@SaijaMahon What does success look like to you? #MIVReveals
