The Rolling Stones tell us you can't always get what you want… that is, unless you're the chief executive.

We've been shadowing three of our chief execs for our series. And their habit of seeing off obstacles has brought them multi-million dollar businesses.

And in this edition, Sarah Curran is in London and her colleague or her fellow boss, Michael Wu, in Asia, show why failure is not an option when you are the boss.

After the launch party for Sarah’s redesigned website, she’s facing a dilemma many bosses have: finding cover for a pregnant staff member.

It’s the first time Sarah has ever faced this situation, which means she also has to come up with a maternity policy.

Sarah shows us how she goes about finding and interviewing new employees – even if just temporary employees. And this brings out an unexpected insecurity in Sarah.

Michael Wu shows us how he’s expanding his business in China. And surprisingly he feels the biggest mistake he can make is to assume they know the Chinese consumer, even if his business is based right in Hong Kong.
