Thank you for finding my blog; I hope you enjoy reading it.

So why am I writing a business blog?

In answer to that, I guess I need to start at the beginning. I’ve never been one for lots of rules and taking orders from other people. I know it’s a fact of life and at some point we all have to, but I wanted to minimise these things as much as I possibly could and so at the age of 21 I started my first business.

As both my business and my commitments grew (a mortgage and a growing family) so did the rules and having to do what others say. But I still wanted to ‘play’ a little in business and at the same time earn some extra money for the fun things I wanted that my mortgage payments wouldn’t let me have, and so I’ve always been involved with other businesses; most successful but some not so.

Building businesses successfully from scratch, coupled with the knowledge gained of other business sectors has given me not only a great deal of enjoyment but also invaluable practical experiences.

For the past six years I have concentrated on being a business mentor as I’ve found over the years that I really enjoy helping other business owners and they benefit from a greater confidence and a broader perspective on both business matters and life.

However, mentoring by its very nature requires me to work with an individual to a high level of trust and understanding, so by writing this blog my hope is that I can share my insights with people, just like you, as your business grows.
