Welcome to Katez Blog (Kate's Blog). I'm Kate, I'm forty and live in Cornwall. I own and run Love Kates and Handy Ideas.
Read about some of the great products we sell, take a look at our best special offers or join in my discussions about matters that effect my businesses. Read as well about my life outside of work with links to pages I like and discussions about causes I'm passionate about.
"This story was written last year; a year on and it's amazing to see our shops are still developing and growing at pace. In six years we've come a long way and the next stage is really exciting. We are now working with Get Set For Growth Cornwall to help us take some more big steps to grow our businesses. One thing I know is that customer focus and satisfaction is key to everything: that's my mantra."
It was the summer of 2008 when the company Kate worked for went under. With a big mortgage and bills to pay Kate didn’t know which way to turn. Five years later and the online business she started on her kitchen table is set to turn over a million.
