The Saturday Interview 40 – Caroline

Commercial Photography Northampton“When you reach 50 you know that time is running out. It’s make or break – why on earth would you want to slow down?” asks Caroline when we sit down together. The philosophy of work hard, play hard has always been central in her life, right from when she first started in banking, straight from school.

“My husband worked for the same bank and we took every opportunity, moving around the country as required to make the most of our careers.” Caroline’s career took her to the City where she began to specialise in advising female clients.

“I started a new company with colleagues which was later taken over by a national company.” As soon as she was legally able, Caroline started up again as an independent, forming Anstee & Co in 2012. “It would have been easy to stay with the larger company,” she admits, “but I’m not ready to slow down yet.”

The opportunity to mould and train the next generation is important to Caroline, both within her own business and in her work as a tutor in personal finance at a University. She also revels in the freedom to offer a wide range of services for her clients. How does she do it all and what keeps her motivated?

“The church has been a constant in my life,” she reflects, it keeps me grounded and I like the familiarity. I like to help people and I like to be busy, at work and socially.” She is very clear about what she wants in the future. “I want to earn enough over the next 10 years to be able to fund my projects and give to the causes dear to me.”

I leave in awe of her laser-like focus and in no doubt that with her work ethic and drive Caroline will see everything she sets out to achieve come to fruition.
