Self description

Male , 38

I am 29 years old born and living in the city of Norwich. I run a family bakery business, which has grown considerably over the the past 4 years and now encompasses a sandwich/grab and go business providing high quality products to offices within the Norwich earlier, along with a recent franchise shop pilot.

I am married with a little boy aged 18 months.

Life experiences

Starting and Growing a Business

I have been involved in business from a young age having worked in my family bakery. I have never worked for anybody and thrive on the preassures presented in running and buidling a business.


On entering the family business after studing for computing at college I was faced with substantial liabilities. I have grown the business from a £250k pa turnover to £1.25m today whilst also tackling these liabilities under a Voluntary arrangement. The recovery process has involved making good people redundant, closing retail premises foundered by my parents and generally making tough decisions for the benefit of the business.

Here to Listen & Help

Many times I have felt alone, but I have never given up, and would like to pass on my experiences to others who are faced with similar problems.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

To be a success whilst sharing my experiences with others to aid them in achieving their goals.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
