Who Am I?

I am a business mentor, entrepreneur and investor based in the UK.  After many challenges I grew my business from 0-500 staff, in three locations, with sales of over £30 million – all without any investment other than a small amount of savings. The business went on to acquire major clients such as Landrover, Jaguar, Toyota and New Look, to name a few. The success inevitably brought about outside interest and at the age 33 I eventually sold my company to a London investment. My current businesses range from property investment, an online recruitment agency and the Business Mentor Academy where I help start, scale and sell businesses. For the last 6 years I have been mentoring business owners & businesses in various sectors. My mentoring work also involves in me giving back and I was chosen for the highly-coveted role as a Prince’s Trust mentor. After helping many entrepreneurs as a mentor, my desire to bring knowledge to a wider audience ultimately triggered the concept of The Business Mentor Podcast. The Business Mentor Podcast on its release Hit Number 1 on the world wide Business podcast charts. It has been a huge success with 100,000's of subscribers in over 47 countries.
