“It might sound cheesy, but life has thrown some really, really good stuff at me
and some pretty bad stuff too. It’s probably because of this that I really want to
help others be all they can be and hopefully a bit more.
Born into a military family, I upheld tradition and signed up to the RAF at 16. Like
most teenage recruits, I fully expected my career to take me to a comfortable
early retirement at 55 at which time other stuff would probably happen. But life
had different plans for me.
After a horrendous accident that left me partly paralyzed at only YY years of age,
I found myself with a lovely GP wife, a beautiful daughter, a senile boxer and a
boisterous horse but kind of with little hope for the future. At that point, I had a
choice between feeling sorry for myself or getting a grip. Thanks in very large
part to Lee, my now business partner, I thankfully chose the latter.
Prior to my accident, I was a high flyer in the military, earmarked for big things.
But thanks to two left feet I found myself in a personal hell hole, where, luckily
Lee was my mentor. At that point, it was Lee who enabled me to see and believe
that I could be and achieve what ever I wanted, despite what had happened to
And it was this journey of discovery that Lee and I took together that inspired
Nurture. Outside of the military, I never believed I could achieve anything big. But
now I have (Nurture) and I want to help you do the same. I want to help enable
you to be everything you want to be and loads, loads more. Because you know
what – no matter what it throws at you; LIFE IS GREAT.
Oh, and it’s not all that important, but I play golf (very badly but my goal is to
get a handicap this year) and I love cooking (and eating!).”
