About me

Nothing is impossible when you have the ability to delegate........
'I can do anything except chemistry...'

Trained as a truck mechanic, left that to become a despatch rider, drove a van, drove a truck, drove a very big truck, drove a very big truck with a crane on it. Someone found out I could read or write so they stuck me in the transport office, consigned goods to Ireland, became dangerous goods safety advisor, implemented Quality, Safety, Health and Environmenal systems, then jumped ship and went to work in a very different place.

Bought a house, did it up, made some money, bought another house, made some more money, bought a third house, did it up and stayed put.

Started up own company importing car parts from Russia, ran this for several years, made some money, sold business as a going concern, made some more money......
