Getting To Know Me

You've probably came to my website from one of my social media channels or found me on Google..... maybe I've been lucky enough to meet you!

By this point, you will know I work with entrepreneurs and small business owners to help them grow their business online.

Whether it’s through developing their website, SEO, marketing or social media.

I make it my passion to help people get to where they want to be with their business online!

Whether you’re struggling to make any strides online with your business and increase your bottom line or you simply want to learn how to grow your business digitally…. I’m your guy!

I have to admit one little thing, teaching is one of my guilty pleasures and I would love to help you grow your online business.... and have some fun along the way!

Over the last 10 years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with over 200+ companies and teaching over 100 entrepreneurs. I have spent thousands of hours helping people in every niche imaginable to leverage the power of online marketing and transform their business.

My journey into entrepreneurship started around 15 years ago when I was just 13.

I fell in love with computers and that was pretty much my entire life during school, I consumed as much knowledge as I could and began fixing and upgrading friends computers.

As word got around my local town I began to get more and more work, I was 14 years old and going to school from 9:00-3:45, then home and repaired computers until around 10pm.

Life was pretty hectic but I couldn’t complain, it was then I realised – why the hell would I work 9-5, Monday to Friday when I left school when I could work when I wanted to and do something I loved.

It was then I decided that I didn’t want to go to university or college and end up working for ‘the man’, I wanted to continue working for myself and grow the business.

I turned 15 and discovered Front Page and HTML, it completely blew my mind! I started putting together little websites for things I was interested in and started developing websites for local business. This grew rapidly and I was having to get my parents to drive me around for meetings with companies wanting to get online.

Over the next few years, I got better and turned website projects around quicker and quicker. I left school when I was 18 and started getting in to photography. I started learning as much as I could about this new subject. I was slowly falling out of love for computer repairs, (I still kept the website design going) so I switched my attention to this new hobby.

After a good few months, I got asked to shoot a wedding and my photography business was born. Through only word of mouth, I started picking up weddings all over the place and was struggling to keep up with all that I had going on.

I kept this going over the next few years, whilst launching (and getting involved in) a few other businesses.

Welcome to the world of property (Real Estate) investment....

I was asked by a local property investment company to develop their new website, after spending a good few weeks with them getting everything in place – from branding and stationery to the website and photography, they asked me to come on board and learn about property investment (or real estate investment, for those of you across the pond).

The business began to thrive and we became well established throughout the country. We were using a loop-hole to buy and sell properties for landlords that became extremely in-demand, well….. until the loop-hole was changed and we couldn’t do it anymore. We then transitioned the business in to a digital estate agency where I continued to help them grow before decided to leave to pursue other ventures.

Enter commercial property, I thought this was going to be my golden ticket – but due to the length of time it was taking to get certain deals ‘over-the-line’, I decided this part of the industry wasn’t for me so I shut-up shop on this venture.

Having left the property industry behind (for the time-being), I was eager to sink my teeth in to something else. I started producing tenor drum sticks (you know the fluffy sticks that are used in Pipe Bands – ya know bagpipe bands?) – well, long story short – I have played the tenor drum in Pipe Bands on-and-off since I was 11 so I started experimenting with custom tenor sticks that were different from anything on the market.

This took off really well and orders were flying in the door so fast I had to outsource part of the design to another company, I continued to build the business over the next year before the market became saturated with similar products so I fulfilled all pending orders and then called it a day.

At this point in my life, I felt burnt out and needed a break. So I decided to do everything I wanted to do when I was younger (that I missed out on because I was working).

I went on 13 trips in 2012 and only worked occasionally on some small website projects. I visited Australia, Austria, Belgium, England, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Ireland, Poland, Spain, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates.

Entering the Cyber Security Industry, New Projects & Going back to my roots... with a twist!

After my short break, I was asked to get involved in with a company in the Cyber Security industry. I researched the industry as it was something I hadn’t look in to that much.

Whilst looking at the market (at the time – around 2014), I could tell this industry was going to explode over the next few years and wanted to get in before I missed the boat.

It’s insane how many people, especially companies don’t even consider Cyber Security as part of their business plan, nor their growth plans.

It is essential that every business makes Cyber Security a critical priority in their plans, before it’s too late and they pay the price.

Over the last few years, I have been involved in the industry and as predicted – it’s grown 10 times bigger than I thought it would, especially with the introduction of GDPR.

Alongside the Cyber Security company, I decided to go back to my roots and work on developing highly engaging websites that bring in traffic and make my customers money! What’s the point in a website that doesn’t convert?

During this time, I also launched a new company in the digital sports industry that allows sports clubs around the globe to develop their own websites that sit on top of an advanced sports club management system. I plan on growing this company during 2019 and beyond…. since it’s been in ‘full test’ mode since early 2018.

I’ve also been busy working on the many big social media platforms over the last few years and have been asked by many entrepreneurs and companies to help them grow their social channels.

With the rise in people asking me to help them with their website and social media growth, I decided to completely re-purpose my core business and focus on website development, social media marketing and digital growth.

Alongside these new services, I am currently working on a range of digital courses for entrepreneurs and companies to help them grow their business and of course their profits!
