At the age of 14 discovered that dyslexia runs in the family on the male side, and yes I did let it affect my final years at school, got the best results from school that I could, with the teaching that I had been shown, I think the best grade was a D for GCSE’s for me back then.
Went to work for a reprographics company in Kings Cross at the age of 16, and they say it’s the people around you that means you become the person you are. I still have some very dear friends that I worked with back then, that are still friends to this day. Some have passed on and gone to better places as well.
In 2003 went on to set up the first company in the UK after going self-employed around 2002. Have not looked back since then, being your own person and owning your own company makes so much more sense than the ‘go and do a nine to five job which you will have for life’.

It’s also around the same time that discovered a network marketing company called Telecom Plus (Utility Warehouse) and so started the route of self-learning as better to becoming the best me that I can be, to serve and help others.
That team today still is growing, over 1200 team members and over 28,000 services used every single month.
Bali (April 2015), taking some time out before returning to the UK to crew at a Tony Robbins event and the Utility Warehouse annual event, then off to travel the world. I remember reading a while ago ‘Awaken the GIANT within‘ back when I first started working in partnership with UWDC as an independent distributor (2003).
May I introduce you to a gentleman that over the last two years has had a massive impact on my life through his teaching and through his coaches that are trained through is coaching program, Tony Robbins.
How did I discover Mr. Tony Robbins again?
In 2013 with a team of four where training for an epic 50 mile walk in 24 hours to help raise money for charity, two of the team went off to see Tony Robbins at his European tour at UPW (Unleash the power within), which is held once a year in London (United Kingdom). After seeing the effect UPW had on both Robyn and Kent I knew I had to connect and see what this was all about again.
So I spoke to the team at Tony Robbins and managed to get myself into a one to one coaching program with a coach called Tara (fantastic coach). Then in March 2014 also attended the UPW for that year in London. WOW, it’s life changing have to say, and all the time still having coaching going on as well. Also joined the YES Group which is a group of people that get together once a month in London that understand what Tony Robbins teaches.
Then March 2015, in Amed, Bali, discovered that I needed to travel the world and see other cultures and find other places around the world that I could work. At the end of the month, I return to the UK for 10 days as will be helping out at this years UPW event!
So for playing a massive part in my life Tony Robbins I thank you from the bottom of my heart and for all the people that have also helped as well.
Robyn, Kent, Tara, Marc, Scott, Doll, Charles, Debbie, Trevor, Rricardo, Alonzo and family, and friends too.
