What you can learn from her: Cohen-Farnell on risk: “It was definitely a risk to go into business together. The key is not only having good communication but also understanding each other’s strengths and weaknesses. We decided early on who fills what role: I am the ‘why’ and the ‘what’; David is the ‘who,’ the ‘how’ and the ‘when.’ It works well."
