Camilla Ainsworth is a 22 year old from Lancashire and was one of 16 competing for the opportunity to become Lord Sugar’s Apprentice in 2018's series of The Apprentice— which started on October 3rd on the BBC.
Camilla is the owner of a brand that focuses on great, dairy free products.
‘IOTK’ spoke to Camilla, who said that her best advice for those getting involved in business is to take calculated risks, take advice and read books to inspire you.
“ I also think that you need to make sacrifices in order to make progress, you need to be passionate about the business you’re starting and therefore you need to eat, sleep and breathe it.
Good things happen to those who hustle, not to those who wait! Don’t wait around expecting success to happen, you have to MAKE it happen”
In 5 years time, Camilla sees herself “fuelling the the dairy free juggernaut further and being the CEO of the leading dairy free company in the UK“
“I will be in supermarkets nationwide and will hopefully have a range of dairy free gourmet desserts/ nut based facial scrubs! I would also love to become an angel investor in young people’s companies who’s ideas resonate with me and need capital to get off the ground! I love to support local businesses and young people in business”
‘If Only They Knew’ wish Camilla the best of luck with the programme, her business and her future projects.
Since the show, Camilla now runs nut milk brand, MYLKPLUS, which sells dairy-free milk. You can find out more about Camilla's business, here: https://mylkplus.com/about/
