What inspires you?
Making a positive difference.
First and foremost to your personal life.
I grew up on the mean streets of Manchester and it’s safe to say I was on the wrong side of tracks back in day. It only took me about 32 years, I’m now 42, but I’ve completely turned my life around, and that is what I do with other people too. My main aim is to help find happiness.
In life, we all chase success, but, what is success? Many may regard a nice house, nice cars, lots of money as success, but really for the vast majority, to be happy is to be successful. That is where I come in, I help people to find happiness within their current circumstances!
What’s your message to the AWMB community?
There is a massive opportunity for business at this current time, we’re out of the recession and our economy is on the up.
Now it the perfect time for small businesses to be doing big business!
When I started my business, there were no grants, I had to push through. I had no professional qualifications and no business acumens.
The thing to keep in mind is: what can you do today, with what you’ve already got?
Look to the AWMB community around you, you already have an established support network. For any business, it is all fair and well to look at spread sheets and come up with business plans, but there are going to be times when you are feeling down and alone, so that’s where you have an advantage, look to your community for support and guidance.
Tell us something that would surprise us about you.
I used to be on TV in the early 90’s. I was on GamesMaster as a regular contributor for Channel 4, but my television career didn’t last too long because I discovered nightclubs!
