Editor's Note

Monday 23 July

What triggered your decision to start-up? Did a bad experience at work or a chat with an entrepreneurial friend inspire you to take the plunge? Or had you long-planned the launch of your business?

 

For Amy Richards, founder of women’s accessory retailer Sterling & Hyde, a near-fatal motorbike accident involving her partner was the tipping point.

Richards says this “life-changing event” pushed her into realising her dream of starting up, with the business pulling in $360,000 revenue in its first year. Today, she explains how she did it.

Meanwhile, lawyer Craig Yeung explains what “prior use” of a trademark actually means and a former franchisee at Billy Baxter’s speaks out about his legal battle with the restaurant chain.
