From 'terrible teen' to thriving entrepreneur

A weightlifter has turned her life around to become a successful business woman at 32.
A weightlifter from Newcastle who says she was a "terrible teen" has turned her life around and is now the successful owner of a new type of healthy 'fast' food restaurant. 

"I was into every single bit of trouble you can imagine. And I couldn't really find what I wanted to do," said Carley Jones, owner of Kettlebell Kitchen. 

The 32-year-old turned her life around after moving to Manchester and working her way up to co-own a call centre. She opened the restaurant in 2016 and is planning to branch out into other areas after the concept really took off. 

"I am obsessed. I wake up it's the first thing I think about. I go to sleep, it's the last thing I think about. I don't sleep much!"
