MY BIO

Award winning designer Victoria Eggs (yes… that is her real name!) founded 'Victoria Eggs Ltd' in March 2011. Based in London, Victoria began her journey by selling tea towels, bags and T-Shirts on Spitalfields Market and storing all the stock in wardrobes and draws in her flat (including 150 mugs under the bed!). Her simple and eye-catching products are now available in over 150 stockists in UK and overseas, including Selfridges, West Elm, The Tate Galleries and Whole Foods and her fulfilment warehouse in Rugby dispatches orders worldwide on a daily basis. The highly skilled manufactures use the finest materials including recycled FSC approved paper, organic cotton, fine bone china and environmentally friendly inks. Scattered around the UK, from Lincolnshire to Staffordshire, they combine traditional skills with modern technology and delicate craftsmanship.

MY BUSINESS TIPS

1. Be nice to people and build genuine relationships. It's simple enough :) 2. Write it down. If you have a plan then write it down, it's much more likely to happen if you do. 3. Build the right team: surround yourself with people that are enthusiastic and better than you in each area. You may know what Facebook is but it doesn't make you an expert! 4. Keep in touch: just because someone doesn't show interest or buy from you after one contact doesn't mean they're not interest. Persistence can really pay off. (If they're not interested however, then respect their decisions and leave them be). 5. Learn, talk and share; keep learning, reading asking and asking for advise/help, along with sharing your successes and failures.
