This book is dedicated to my unfaltering wife Lisa and our three special boys: Harry, Fred and Patrick. When your family believe in you, nothing seems impossible.
Thank you also to my dad for your commitment and support, not only during the start - up of the business but for driving me to rugby, helping me with homework and being a great role model throughout my life. I am sure it wasn ' t always easy. You are doing a great job.
The most valuable piece of advice that I turn to in times of trouble is "Keep on going". Thank you John Handley for your unwavering support. I still remember the first meeting we had in your conservatory that day.
Thank you to all who have helped me in my various endeavours. It would have been impossible without you.
Thank you to all the entrepreneurs, idea generators, risk takers and start - ups. You make the world an amazing place to live and play.
