It's nice to be able to write in a format where I don't feel I have to document what I think I should but rather what I would like to... Not a CV nor LinkedIn so no need for pretending. This is me, like it or lump it... What did I do so far? Probably far too much for a man of just 35, most of which you probably wouldn't believe. However, the fact I'm here to tell the story is a miracle in itself, but this is not the place to disclose all of the detail.
A brief description of my rise in business: I started as a Gardener (9-15), Paper Boy (12-14), Waiter (16-18), Door-to-door Salesman (18-20), National Sales Supervisor (20-24), Builders Labourer (24) 1st Business: Recruitment Consultancy (24), 2nd Business: Spanish Real Estate Agency (26), 3rd Business: Hungarian Real Estate Agency (28) & for the rest of my career up until today, I have built up a Global Group of Companies which operate in more than 5 countries providing the following areas of expertise & investment: Real Estate Development, Sports Investment, International Trade & Development.
Travel? I've been all over the world, conquering numerous mountains such as: The Everest Trek in 1999, climbing to 5545m. I hit the 5895m peak of Kilamanjaro in 2004 whilst raising money for Charity, but failed to conquer the 4925m of Pico Humboldt in 2005 due to adverse weather conditions whilst tackling a glacier. I've also wandered over other beautuiful lands, such as: South Korea, Venezuela, Thailand, Kenya, Tanzania, Albania, Morocco, Australia & Cuba to name but a few.
In my current business life I have the privilege to live between Hungary, Spain & England from time to time. Throughout all of the above I have danced with the devil and faced my demons. A victorious battle which I've enjoyed winning for the last 11 years, therefore, I appreciate the ups as much as the downs & make sure I enjoy precious time with my family & friends whenever I can. I have the clarity today to see clearly what is important during this short existence... today, I choose life!
