From the kitchen table

Eureka moments don’t just happen in the bath.

We all remember Monica's apartment in 'Friends'.

I know that I’m not the only person who formulates ideas from the kitchen table. Some of the best businesses were formed around a kitchen or dining table (no doubt, after a few glasses of wine): The Body Shop and The Covent Garden Soup Company, to name a couple.

I recently had the pleasure of listening to Lopo Champalimaud, the CEO of beauty website Wahanda, speak about how he grew his multi-million pound business, at The Beauty Exchange, organised by Enterprise Nation. Guess where the idea for Wahanda came from?
I remember when I started my cake business, I was sitting at the kitchen table, when I started putting the ideas together (a good place to be for a baking business). So next time you are at the table, alone, with the family or a bunch of friends, think about the ideas that are thrown across the table. Even those whacky and way-out ideas might come in useful, sometime soon.
