Liv Conlon on Building a Million Pound Business by the Age of 19, Dealing with Haters, and Creating a Personal Brand

Not many people can say they’ve started two successful businesses from scratch, built a £1m brand in their teens, travel the world speaking internationally, had dinner with the Prime Minister & won 11 national & international business and entrepreneur awards. And even fewer people can say they’ve done all that – and so much more – before they were 21-years-old.

CEO & Founder Liv Conlon, The UK Young Entrepreneur of the Year, tenacious and entrepreneurial to her core left school aged 16 & founded her first business ThePropertyStagers. At 19 she built a £1m brand in an industry that was in it’s infancy so Liv knows a thing or two about building a scalable internationally recognizable business & personal brand. She beat the odds & turned her vision into a profitable reality. Liv now uses her own success & experience to help entrepreneurs leverage their expertise to become thought leaders in their space.
