Amanda Perry: founder of Fancie Cupcakes

As part of our coverage of Global Entrepreneurship Week 2012, we are speaking to a series of entrepreneurs about their challenges and what makes their work rewarding

In this interview, entrepreneur and founder of Fancie Cupcakes Amanda Perry talks about why she always wanted to start her own business, and how she got disillusioned with the corporate culture. Perry emphasises the importance of good business advice after some bad experiences when starting her business, and says entrepreneurs need to have "burning passion."

Throughout Global Entrepreneurship Week (#GEW2012) we will be exploring what makes a good entrepreneur, and why they need accountants. The site is being guest edited by Natalie Campbell, founder of A Very Good Company.
