A MULTI-MILLIONAIRE'S STORY

I left England with £5 and now I'm a multi-millionaire!
A British woman who began a new life in Australia with just £5 in her pocket a few years ago has sold her business for a huge amount of money.
Cherry Haines, 39, who once worked as a market stallholder, made all of her fortune from marketing a new kind of make-up. She left England because there weren't many jobs, caught a flight to the other side of the world, and arrived without any qualifications. She only knew two people.
'The flight cost £1,500, which left me penniless. At first I stayed with a friend. Then I had a bit of luck.' The friend gave her the name of Peter Maddox, an Australian businessman. 'I rang him and told him I was the best salesperson in England and that he should give me a job.'
He liked her idea for a sort of make-up that stays on all day, so together they formed a company to market it. At first she was earning just $ 10,000 a year, but later she was getting a great deal of money every year. 'Hard work means happiness to me,' she said. Her brother, Roger Haines, who is spending several weeks with her in Brisbane, said 'She left school when she was 16. She had very little work experience. But she could sell a fridge to an Eskimo. Ambition has led to success.'
