Mother-of-two, Lorraine Tighe was born in London and left school at 16. Since then she has gone on to be the top sales person in every company she has ever worked for. Talkative Lorraine admits to having very little education and has endured many trials and tribulations throughout her life. She sums up her attitude to business as the ability to drive a dead horse to the winning line.

She says: "I've fought against all the odds. I'm a single mum with no education and I've had a very hard time. It is tough, but to have the confidence I have I should be very proud of myself."
