Angela De Souza
I am a mother of four amazing children, three cats, one grandchild and married to a very handsome Brazilian man! In my spare time, I am an author, speaker, trainer and business mentor. My favourite thing to do is play my piano and sing (loudly and out of tune I’m afraid) as well as go for long walks or short runs!

I Did it in My Pyjamas
Angela says there are few rules when it comes to setting up and growing a successful business, and even some of those can be broken if they stifle your creativity or approach to working. In this book, she shares her journey of how she built the Women’s Business Club from nothing to the huge national success it is today, nuts, bolts and all. Angela has written a book that is quite unlike other books about starting and growing a business – though packed with tips and advice it is not so much of a ‘how to do it’ book but rather a ‘how I did it’. In a style that is both accessible and refreshing, she covers topics such as facing opposition, raising children, tackling fear and managing depression while building a business. The book is candid, honest and packed with tips on how she did it in her pyjamas!
