piece written on the 2nd November 2015 by  
I remember the moment when I decided to become an entrepreneur, it feels like it was just yesterday. What an incredible feeling and now when I look back I can easily tell that I was always meant to be an entrepreneur and the decision I made was the correct one.

Investing & Money
piece written on the 3rd October 2015 by  
I've blogged countless times on here about investing and trading. This morning I want to tell you about a relatively new trading platform that I've overlooked and I think it's worth blogging about. I've been trading with PSG Online for a number of years and although the fees are high, their educational resources make it worthwhile. With that being said, one thing that has always been a problem is that the fees make...
