I recently spoke to Business Link Yorkshire, to talk about how I spend my down time. You can read the interview in full here…

Kate Burns is the founder of KB Mortgage Services — a Huddersfield-based mortgage and insurance protection company, which she launched in 2016.


1. What is the first thing you do to get the weekend started?

I do work most Saturdays, so my weekends don’t tend to start until late Saturday afternoon. Then I’ll go and meet my friends for a natter and catch up.


2. What is your hobby?

I enjoy blowing away the cobwebs at the gym or going for a walk; finishing up at a nice country pub for some food and drinks. My new year’s resolution is to make more time for these kinds of things.


3. What is your favourite movie?

I love a good Rom-Com! Love Actually and The Holiday are a couple of my favourites; I enjoy anything that has a feel-good factor to it.


4. If you hadn’t been successful at what you do, what would you be doing instead of a career?

When I was younger, I wanted to be a police officer. I thought that every day would be different; and that I would thrive on it. However now, I’m not sure I could do it! So, I would probably be a business development manager, building relationships with clients.


5. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

I’d have an invisibility cloak or be a fly on the wall! I must admit, I am a bit nosy and I would love to listen into conversations and when nobody knew I was there.


6. What is your favourite genre of music?

I listen to all sorts of genres – there’s not one in particular that’s my favourite. I do love a good sing-a-long in my car, it makes you feel good and can definitely improve your mood.


7. If you could travel to any moment in time, where would you go?

I would travel 200 years into the future to see what’s changed in the world and look at technological advances.
