Nicola Ablett, Certified Practitioner of PRISM Brain Mapping: “PRISM Brain Mapping is a neuro-science which is extremely valuable when you’re looking at entrepreneurship. My advice from my experience is to very much look at your preferred behaviors and play to those – not to your least preferred behaviors because if you play to your strengths, you’re going to have more enduring success, more fun, and therefore more success as well! So PRISM brain mapping will help you find your strengths. Play to those and use your mindset in order to be successful.”

Nicola Ablett, Certified Practitioner of PRISM Brain Mapping revealed the underlying factors within the mind to map one’s strengths and build the entrepreneurship skillset. “PRISM brain mapping leads entrepreneurs like you to know who you are, and how you can function well in the right environment. Fifty percent of lies in our genes and the rest of lies in experience, development and exposure.”

Iain Cooper, Co-Founder of Lighthouse: “My advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is very simple. Either do something you absolutely love or be a really brilliant business or business woman, and work very hard. Simple as that!”

Iain Cooper, Creative Partner and Founder of Lighthouse spoke about how he started Lighthouse, and the challenges he overcame along the way. “After starting out with the negativity of ‘Impossible is everything’, optimism is essential, which is not just blind faith, but tampered with reality.”
