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 of 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 worldwide Business podcast charts. It has been a huge success with 100,000's of subscribers in over 47 countries.
My business journey started with no external investment and with only a small amount of savings. I believe that anyone can achieve success in business with the right advice and mentoring. I can help you make a realistic business plan by giving advice on: the viability of your business idea, the effects of competition, goal setting, branding, financing, business partnerships, business structure, business name, location, market, recruiting a team, initial promotion and marketing.
No matter where you are in your business journey, I can help you scale and sell your business. I can advise on: growing your brand, scaling and systemising your business, growing your team, managing and motivating employees, exit planning, preparing your company for sale, identifying potential buyers and negotiating an exit.
I have many years' experience promoting my business and personal brands using the power of social media, and I have hundreds of thousands of subscribers to my Business Mentor podcast. I can advise on: initial setup, best practice, building brands, acquiring followers, encouraging interaction, viral marketing and video marketing
