I started with nothing. Less than nothing to be exact. I put myself through University by working three jobs. Only to find once I had completed my course I was left with a mountain of debt. So what did I do? I bought a house (with no money down), renovated it and sold it making enough profit to pay off all of my debts. All within 8 months of leaving college.
Over the last 15 years I have started 9 successful businesses all from scratch. Including a Subway franchise which I built up to 3 shops and a £700K turnover in just 18 months. I enjoy starting businesses and love teaching and coaching. The businesses I have started apart from the franchise were all started for less than $1,000 each.
