They say to be a great model you need to be a chameleon.

You’re in constant correspondence… being the boss but being a nice person, it’s really hard. But I guess that’s thrilling, I find it really interesting and there’s something new every day.”
Schedule your time well
“There are set days when you’re endorsing a brand, and then away from that, there is Jbronze all the time… We do fortnightly WIPs so you get with the team and then in between it’s correspondence. I find that works really well.”
