@bakewellpark thanks for joining us Becky Sebright-King, could you firstly just explain to us what it is you do? #MIVReveals

I provide fine British baked goods - most popular for our personalised biscuits, petits fours Bakewells and gluten free brownies. #MIVReveals

@bakewellpark Can you tell us about your background and what inspired you to start up your business? #MIVReveals

It all started with a blog whilst working in London; I followed my dreams and took a risky punt after being made redundant. #MIVReveals. 

@bakewellpark What have been the biggest challenges of setting up your #company? #MIVReveals

The unknown and the solitude; it's hard setting up a business as one with only you, yourself and I to count on. #MIVReveals

@bakewellpark What type of financial and #mentoring support have you received? #MIVReveals

I had mentor support from @ThePrincesTrust - through the Enterprise programme. #MIVReveals

@bakewellpark Can you tell us about your involvement with @SmallBizSatUK? #MIVReveals

I was a #smallbiz 100 in 2014 and I'm now a champion for the cause; it provides a great network and support system of other small businesses - shop local! #MIVReveals

Surviving the first year and keeping on going; it's so hard to have the courage and belief some days. #MIVReveals

Social media is my biggest source of advertisement and subsequently, income. It's where my biggest audience is. #MIVReveals

@bakewellpark What does success look like to you? #MIVReveals

My parents; retired, happy, successful entrepreneurs. A total inspiration and a goal post to aspire to. #MIVReveals

@bakewellpark What does the future hold? Any exciting plans we should keep an eye out for? #MIVReveals

Christmas is just around the corner, and there's always something bubbling at LBP HQ... #MIVReveals
