Flame of hope at grassroots
Madam – Prominent, flamboyant entrepreneurs emerging over the past two decades were glorified for the size and cost of their office blocks. Alas, when the crash came most were operating on borrowed capital and still aiming for an unrealistic target.
How different and uplifting then the story of 'burning ambition' showed by Fleur Daly and her husband Jimmy, as reported by Louise McBride in last week's Sunday Independent. Their hobby of making soya wax candles has grown to a company, Bluebell Eco Candles. True 'grassroots' entrepreneurs!
