I have been self- employed since I was 19 back in 1988.
As a youngster desperate to work for myself I had people skills but no Business education.
I knew that being a butcher from the age of 11 had given me great sales and communication
skills with people but the industry was dying so I turned to my older brother Terry Swann who
was at the time known as the best car paint sprayer in the business and said "let’s do it”!!
I will get the work, you can fix the cars and that's exactly what we did,
we set up our own Car Accident Repair Centre.
I had no knowledge of the car industry but I was hungry and full of enthusiasm!
I may have been a baby faced 19 year old but I could sell what I believed in and I believed
we could give a better service than anyone else because we cared more, the rest is history.
I don't really have a CV of work Experience as it has been all hands on and learnt on the job.
So instead of a work experience I have included an Achievement of experience.

Having left School with no grades i have learnt everything since school.
Having left School with no grades I have learnt everything since school.
You could say I have learnt much the hard way, when mistakes cost money you learn quickly.
If I could go back in time I wouldn't change a thing, some of us study when we are young, and many of us love to learn later in life. The minute I left school my thirst for business and life knowledge just grew.
