Takeover Week: Michelle Mone

Entrepreneur Michelle Mone is our Guest Editor. She's passionate about helping young people get a job or follow in her footsteps by setting up on their own - what can we do to help to break down the barriers particularly in deprived areas. She knows that not everyone wants to work for themselves, so what makes a model employee and what can firms do to get their staff to go that extra mile. Plus could an X Factor style approach to recruitment help those with a poor CV get hired. And when she decided to treat her body like a business she went from a size 22 to a size 12 and she wanted to explore the psychology behind weight loss and why she believes that a healthy body equals a healthy mind and a healthy business.
