What gets me out of bed in the morning

Normally, my wife telling me I have to go to our local cross-fit class. But otherwise, the hope of making a difference to someone’s life, even in a small way, that day. Ideally, a positive one.

An entrepreneur I admire

I’m always in awe of anyone who is prepared to take such large risks in hope of reward. It’s very rare, in an enterpreneur’s world, to hear the words “That’s safe. No-one can take that away from you”. It takes a lot of guts to have a vision and then make it real, against a background of potentially losing everything.
