I have been helping business owners access finance for over 25 years. During that time, I’ve worked with over 7,000 business owners, helping them to raise in excess of £4 billion in funding.
Because I run my own business, I understand the unique journey that business owners and entrepreneurs are on.
I’ve experienced the excitement and the exhilaration that comes with being a business owner.
And I have also experienced the struggles and the challenges. Several years ago, I had an extended period of illness, resulting in major surgery. This meant I was out of action for nearly four years, with all the pressures, financial and otherwise, that brings.
As a result of my entrepreneurial journey, I have a unique understanding of the ‘highs and lows’ that all business owners’ experience at different times during their business life.
I also have a better understanding of the obstacles that at some point all business owners will face. As well as an appreciation of the resilience and persistence required to keep going and not give up.
For me, being a finance broker is more than just about raising business finance. It is about using my own experiences as well as my expertise, to make it easier for my clients to access business finance, and so achieve their own goals in life and in business.
Would I change anything in my journey as a business owner? No!
Because, not only have my experiences made me a better finance broker, they have also given me a better understanding of the journey that all my clients are on.
To the journey!
