Have I gone as far as I can?

Can I still grow my business? Or should I invest in other areas?

When thinking about what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur, we discussed the critical role ambition plays in deciding career moves, with Michelin-starred restaurateur Marcus Wareing.

What drives you in business?

"I never give up. I never want to slow down. I have ambition, and there are lots of things I still want to achieve."

When looking forward, passion is everything.

"In 20 years from now, I’ll probably still be sitting in my chef’s jacket, in a restaurant somewhere, and I’ll be enjoying an industry that I live and breathe for."

But business acumen matters.

"No matter how good you think you are, if it doesn’t work from a business point of view, then it doesn’t work."
