He is an author, a motivational speaker and holds a BA (Hons) Business Degree from London Metropolitan University.

Whilst trying to raise finance to start up his present companies between 2008 and 2012, he spoke to 150 sources including banks, business angels and venture capitalists and got 150 “NOs”; but he was not deterred. He was bold enough to put an advert in The Sunday Times and through that, he was able to raise the finance from one private individual, which enabled him to launch the two companies.

He built the new businesses into a multi-million-pound turnover concern within 11 months. In just over 4 years, his leasing income shot north of £4 million, with over £20 million worth of vehicles funded. He has also diversified his business portfolio by setting up Lifestyle Bids (a luxury reverse auction site).
