A year ago in my summer holidays I was bored and decided to create something for myself, it took about 2 months and ended up being really good. I decided to start my own business and put it for sale on a website just to see what happens.
It did quite well, I was selling quite a few and realised I could make even more so developed more products (have 6 different products now) for a wider market.
After a year trading I'm now at the point where I've set up a relevant service in London that accompany the nature of the product. I've already employed 5 other people (on a contractual basis) and it's been a great experience having to deal with people in a business manner.
I'm only a uni student and this hasn't been a mindblowing business but I think it's done well and I'm earning about £7k/year out of it (okay it's not a lot for a business but it's a huge amount for me as a student).
I would like to put this down on my CV as It's probably the most successful thing I've ever done so far. My question is, do I put it in the Experience section of my CV as I am the director of this company or do I put it in the interests/hobbies section because it is a small start up business relatively speaking.
All advice is much appreciated, thanks.
