“The only joy in the world is to begin.”

What were you doing prior to becoming an independent sales contractor with AJG Direct? 

Before I started in the industry I had done multiple odd jobs from welding, journalism, security, but my main job was as a professional Rugby League player for Wigan Warriors. Unfortunately, I got an injury playing in an England trial game, which over time ended my playing career.

How did that effect you?

Realistically, it may have turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I can get old and injured, but within AJG Direct there is no limit to growth.

And what brought you to AJG Direct?

I looked at the careers of my friends and was only excited by two of the guys I grew up with. Andy, pro power lifer and PT, now runs his own gym which has become one of the biggest gyms in the north west after only 3 year of business. And Ben, who started off doing field sales, is now a Sales Manager for Stanley after only 3 years. because of my competitive nature I chose sales because I wanted to do something I would be able to be judged. I moved from Newcastle to London over a weekend and haven’t looked back since.

And now? What are your goals moving forward?

I am running a new campaign now with Paul, once I am sure I am ready, and I know how to run a #1 office I will spilt off and take my team to Manchester.

Long term?

I plan on buying the Wigan Warriors, the club has had a huge impact on my life, not only playing for them but my whole family lives for the club. They cost £4.5 million now. That’s not going to happen next year or the year after but my aim is to invest and grow with them.
