(CNN) – Three continents, six personalities and one thing in common - being The Boss.

For more than a year, CNN has followed these business leaders, learning what really goes into running your own company. Some have bowed out, like Michael Wu and Richard Braddock, and some have stepped aside, like Sarah Curran.

Now the "Boss" era is coming to an end - but first, CNN's Richard Quest has a few more questions.

(CNN) – For more than a year we've followed the lives of CEOs across the world  - and Sarah Curran is one of them.

Curran set up five years ago after spotting a gap in the market. The website is more up-market than the high street stores, and less pricey than the fanciest boutiques. Sarah sold her house to fund the idea, and the gamble paid off.

Now she has almost a million visitors every month and sales have doubled every year. For some this would be an opportunity, but for Sarah it's a problem. She doesn't know if she's the right person to take the company forward, and is facing some tough choices.
