The Power Of You

The young child of an immigrant family from Dominica. Through much of her life she has felt like a square peg in a round hole, trying desperately to fit in and curb her natural exuberance. In this book Olive shares with us the highs and lows of her business journey, how she has triumphed in the face of adversity and continued to run a successful business through a global recession to be awarded an MBE in 2019.
