What gets me out of bed in the morning

Usually my son asking me to watch Peppa Pig. Which is no bad thing as Mrs Rabbit is a legend and every morning she teaches me something new. She works really hard and somehow runs multiple businesses in multiple industries without any help and still finds time to look after her young family.

An entrepreneur I admire

James Lambert OBE, the founder of R&R Ice Cream. I love his story about turning a struggling bull semen business into a multi-million pound global ice cream manufacturer. He taught me that the key to success was to keep things simple and to never stop laughing.

I would also have to mention my dad. He turned around his early aspirations of being a petrol pump attendant, to obtaining a PhD in speech recognition and founding his own software distribution business.
