She could've at least set up a company for her speaking business, hehe, instead of just using her name.

Oh well, she has done well and we shouldn't give her too much hassle:)

Interesting to see the #1 result on Google for "Annette Presley".

Also interesting that according to my logs the link to "Annette Presley" you posted here is the top click today... And free for her!

Her "involvement in The Dragons' Den"?  Did I miss an episode where she actually invested in something? Innocent

I've hidden that post containing the picture putting down Annette as an alcoholic (along with sexual references) as it potentially fits into multiple categories under our forum usage guidelines.

While I don't agree with everything she says, attack the argument, not the person.

Awww - wrecked my fun cokey :P

Seriously though, Annette really does need to realise that she's passed her used-by date. She might've done a few good things, and I certainly respect her persistence and business-sense, but it's time to move on to new and better things (and people).

this i strongly disagree with. She's done with isp business perhaps, but not done completely. I wish her well.

She is nowhere near her use by date IMHO.

Where do we get business mentors from? Are a lot of them not from retired directors of company's and entrepreneurs?

On TV3's Money Man, Annette had lunch with three young Auckland ladies, talking about goals and how to be a successful businesswoman.

There was no speech slurring, just a few snippets to the secrets of success - not that I think the three bimbettes involved would ever aspire to the heights of dear Annette.

That Mark Sainsbury interview though ......... oh dear!!

I have a great deal of respect for what Ms Presley has achieved, just don't mix the sauce and the media!!
