Karren Brady’s career advice on changing careers and how to find the right job

Cara MacGregor, 43, is co-founder of online wine store Wine @ Heart. She lives in south-west London with her husband Thomas, 43, and their children Noah, 12, Sevan, 10, and Effie, eight.

I wake up at…

7 o’clock in the morning. I have a coffee while Noah gets ready before cycling to school at 7.45am. While the other two get dressed, I shower, then make some oatmeal before taking her to school at 8:45. I’m ready to start work at 9am.

A normal day includes…

Many mornings require a quick train ride from the school gates into central London. But when I work from home, I order wines to be delivered to our local warehouse.

My business partner Tilly Walters and I apply custom labels with three words and symbols to describe each wine, plus a line why we love it, for example, “It goes great with fried chicken.”

It’s easy to get intimidated by the wine industry because it’s pretty stuffy and old-fashioned, so we’re trying to teach people what they’re drinking in a simple way. Our virtual and in-person tastings are a great way to do this.

Social media is important to business but neither Tilly nor I like taking pictures of ourselves so we need to improve on that! We are both working moms so flexibility is key. I work an evening once a week to accommodate a three hour bike ride. Exercise is good for clearing my head.

I stop work when my two youngest ones finish school at 3.30pm and after taking them to and from the after-school clubs everyone is home by 6pm. I eat with Thomas either after the kids are in bed or earlier when I have a spin class in the evening.

The best thing about my job is…

Getting positive feedback from people who loved wines they wouldn’t normally choose, who then ask, “What else can I try?”

And the worst…

Difficulty finding time for administration, e.g. B. for processing invoices.

I relax by…

Taking an evening stroll with our Labrador pup Ash, then watching Billions or something on Netflix with a nice glass of wine – I’m lucky to have access to some fabulous wine! I’m always in bed by 11pm on school nights.
