You want to know about me?

To be honest, I’m still learning but here is my story so far.

Dare I say it, I’m 33.  That feels old, so I apologise if you’re even older than me reading this.  I promise I won’t mention it again.  You being old that is, not the fact that I’m 33!

I started my first business when I was 22. After leaving school I worked in a bike shop for a few years, then, when I thought I knew enough to take over the world I left and set up my own.  I soon realised I didn’t have a clue what I was doing (some would say that I still haven’t) so I have been on a very bumpy journey over the past number of years to where I am now.

Where am I now?  I still own a bike shop but after taking part in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme earlier in 2017 I’m venturing into the world of start up again.  This time with more of an idea of what I want to do and where I want to go.

This blog will document my journey and it would be great if you could join me.  I want to inspire a generation of entrepreneurs, follow me on my journey and laugh with me at the mistakes I continue to make!
