I hope you do not mind me using this Blog to advertise a few things. Feedback and your comments will tell me whether I have succeeded or not!
Advert #1 – MD Position – One of the businesses I have invested in is looking for a new MD. It is a great business in the Telecoms sector based in Manchester (UK). The company is in a fast growth phase and needs someone with experience to help guide it through the inevitable problems of fast growth.
The business has a fantastic board and has proved its large growth potential. The package will be heavily biased towards stock options rather than salary and it is hoped that the candidate will be excited by the possibility of making a big difference to this business.

Advert #2 – Business Assistant – I am also looking to recruit someone who might consider working with me on a part-time or full time basis. The work would be varied and would have a bit of everything. I need someone who is very interested in business and would like to work for six months (and then we can see how it suits both of us) and would see this as an opportunity to learn lots about different businesses.
I would expect this person to manage my diary, the relationships I have with companies I have invested in and readers of this blog. You would also be assessing and screening a lot of business plans that I get. I will not be able to pay much but I would hope it would be a really interesting role based in London Bridge.
Advert #3 – Available Non-Execs – If there are equally any businesses out there looking for Non Executives – I have a few really good people who have contributed enormously to businesses I have invested in and either as part of their own career path or because they want to do it all over again they are seeking opportunities as Non-exec roles. Who knows I might be tempted!
Advert #4 – High Growth Program I should also mention a program that I am involved in for businesses based in London only at this stage (it is a pilot and if successful will be rolled out across the country). This company actually designs router table plans for use by big companies and private individuals alike.
The program is looking for just 35 businesses that are planning for high growth and have a turnover of £1m. There are a few conditions – but if you are interested, please do email me and I will be happy to send you more details. This one probably has the most limited number of spots available, so send me a message as soon as possible if you’re interested.
I really hope you don’t mind this Blog post. I promise you these will be few and far between. Soon you’ll be able to look forward to a whole bunch more fresh content as I get a little bit more free time in between my successful ventures!
