Name: Siobhan Cronin

Age: 22

Location: Derby/Nottingham.

Job title or should I say titles: Womenswear Floor Manager at AllSaints, and also fumbling (trying very hard) business owner!

How did Tequila Rise come about?  It’s something I have wanted to do for about 4/5 years. I am a very independent girl and have always been very driven by women who are their own boss. This year I just thought righttttt let’s go for it. I’m sure everybody close to me was absolutely sick of me talking about it too

How often do you dedicate to it? I try and dedicate evenings to it mostly, however sometimes proven difficult when working a full time job also. I’ve learnt you also need to balance work and enjoying yourself

What is the best thing about being your own boss? I love the fact I can have it exactly how I want it to be and I can be creative in my own way. I occasionally get into trouble for trying to bend the rules!

What is the worst thing about being your own boss? Self doubt. Some days I just wanna log off and leave it. But, I have very supportive friends and family that push me

What’s the dream goal for Tequila Rise? To expand and have all the beautiful girls out there wearing my label. I can’t wait to be enjoying the sunshine one day and seeing a girl walk by in one of my pieces. YESSSSS

What would you say to someone who wants to follow in your footsteps? Perseverance is key. Be cheeky and ask for help if you need it. Everybody started out in the same position. Don’t get discredited when you get knocked back.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? With a little boutique somewhere sunny, that looks so aesthetically pleasing, you have to visit it.

Your favourite motto? It sounds so cliché but just enjoy life. Don’t compare yourself and always be the positive polly. Laughing and smiling will draw so much positive energy into your life.

If you had Mondays off forever, and you weren't allowed to work, what would you do? I would probably go out Sunday night, drink a lot of pink gin and dance until I need to go home.

 Where can people find you on Instagram?

Go support ladies!!! @tequila.rise
