Have you ever thought — considering how many hours you work — that you may as well be working for yourself?
Sarah Hilleary thought so too, which is why she quit to start her own bakery.
But not just any bakery.
B-Tempted specialises in gluten-free treats so that people with an intolerance — or those who choose to forgo it like her — can enjoy flavours that match their gluten-based rivals.
Like Jo Malone and Kris Carr, Sarah started in her own kitchen, but now B-Tempted has it’s own fully dedicated gluten free manufacturing premises in a converted railway arch in Leytonstone, East London.
And guess who she can name as clients?
Harrods, Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason and Whole Foods to name a few.
Having just raised investment, filmed a prime time TV show and currently negotiating with a national supermarket chain here in the UK, life is a far cry from her junior fund manager role at Merrill Lynch.
Sarah will share her greatest challenges around becoming a baked goods entrepreneur and leaving the world of financial services.
If you’ve discovered a solution to your own problem and want to build a business by helping others do the same, this is the episode YOU want to watch.

▸ Learn how she went from kitchen sink to the shelves at Whole Foods.
▸ Discover how it feels to raise your first round of $million+ investment.
