What are you most looking forward to?
Bit left of centre but I have a project I’ve been thinking about for some time. It’s to launch a scaled rocket into orbit! However I can’t say too much but look out 2015!
What inspires you?
So many things inspire me! I have an amazing wife that keeps me honest and some beautiful friends! My staff are amazing and watching them tackle issues and overcome them also gives me drive to push on. It’s a really hard question, in a way everything does. We’re all so connected these days and people do some amazing things and I want to or maybe need to be involved…
What’s the biggest challenge you face in life right now?
Launching two new businesses in 2015 which will be challenging and fun. It honestly doesn’t feel like work as I’m mostly exposed to working with great people coming up with ideas at Café’s and pubs… Few too many drinks on these business lunches! I’ve also got my eye on an MX championship in 2015 so training and getting to the track on crappy days can be challenging but ultimately it’s a lot of fun.
Best bit of advice you’ve been given?
It’s been given to me by lots of people in my life but primarily from my Mother from a very young age. She always told me I could do anything no matter what others said. I’ve found it to be true and there are always nay sayers along the way but if you believe in it then go for it and, hell, what’s the worst that can happen…? On another note this philosophy has landed me in hospital a few times.
