I currently own two companies:
I have owned GW plumbing for around 13 years, after doing a plumbing course while trying to find my feet after univeristy (owning my own company was my goal since i was very young)
I quickly learnt a 10 week course does not make you a plumber! so starting with replacing taps and washers, i slowly gained confidence and enjoyed the challenge. Failure was common, but became less regular, and success when it cropped up, became more rewarding as the years went by.
I introduced a building company to my portfolio to broaden my horizons and became a member of the federation of master builders. I am motivated by challenges, i see obstacles as a hurdle not a stop sign.
