How I got here, and why I help others.

MY STORY

 

 

Last year (25) I was a millionaire, driving an Audi R8 Spyder and a Range Rover Evoque, living in a 5-bedroom house with my beautiful girlfriend and endless possibilities. I had helped build a sales & marketing company that employed nearly 100 people and had turned over more then £10mil in 5 years. I was in my element, my dreams had come true and I was ready to chase new opportunities and achieve great things. I started looking into the tech world, exploring technological companies that could reduce the carbon footprint and help save the planet. I invested in a company called Greener Technology Solutions and traveled to Hong Kong & China to source the highest quality products from the most efficient manufacturers. I met inspirational leaders that focused on solving problems rather then making money and I was motivated to follow in their footsteps. 

 

" It was as if everything that was wrong in life showed up at once and I made it my mission to solve all the problems in one go."

 

Eventually I burnt myself out and took some much needed time off work. When I returned I just couldn't find joy or bliss in what I was doing anymore and I was ready to move on. The people around me didn't see life from the same point of view as I did so I walked away from my share in the sales & marketing company, I accepted the loss of Greener Technology Solutions, I sold my cars and I started again with a £50/day budget.

 

" It felt like failure but it was just the starting point of the most amazing opportunity I could have asked for. "

 

I began a journey of self-development, understanding how my mind worked in order to master it. I wanted to be assertive, sure of myself and open to meeting new people without being misled. I wasn't sure how I would do this so I just followed my inner guidance, traveling to new places, meeting new people, reading book after book and studying psychology and business. 

 

I studied inspirational people like Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Tony Robins, Les Brown and Adam Braune, taking different lessons from each of them. I listened to motivational videos every morning, ran 5-10k every day, trained weights in the gym 5-6 days per week and I submerged myself in positive content. I built exercises to redefine my mission statement, my values and my goals. I developed a new belief system to change my feelings, control my thoughts and control my world. I found faith in myself and others, and life began happening for me, not to me. 

 

I came to realise that if we spend our lives doing what other people we love, respect and honour think we should do, we will never develop our own gut instinct. We have to listen to ourselves, make mistakes and upset some people in order to learn what's right for us. If you believe that you can achieve greatness and inspire others, if you really feel like that's what you're here to do, who is anyone to tell you that you can't?

 

By investing time in ourselves, we simultaneously invest in every aspect of our life; relationships, business, health, wealth and happiness. I am now the CEO of myofficemove.co.uk, an Investor at Den Automation, a Business and Life coach, a Motivational speaker in schools, and Founder of the InvestBottomUp campaign to help the homeless back into work.

At 25 years old I was a millionaire, driving an Audi R8 Spyder and a Range Rover Evoque, living in a 5-bedroom house with my beautiful girlfriend and endless possibilities. I had helped build a sales & marketing company that employed nearly 100 people and had turned over more than £15mil in 5 years. I was in my element, my dreams had come true and I was ready to chase new opportunities and achieve great things. I started looking into the tech world, exploring technological companies that could reduce the carbon footprint and help save the planet. I invested in a company called Greener Technology Solutions and travelled to Hong Kong & China to source the highest quality products from the most efficient manufacturers. I met inspirational leaders that focused on solving problems rather than making money and I was motivated to follow in their footsteps. 

 

" It was as if everything that was wrong in life showed up at once and I made it my mission to solve all the problems in one go."

 

Eventually I burnt myself out and took some much needed time off work. For the first time in 5 years I had space to reflect on my life and imagine the future I was building. I realised that the people around me didn't share the same values, moral standards or life goals as I did. They saw me as a hippie, I saw them as mercenaries. If I continued on the path I was on, surrounded by the same people, I ran the risk of losing myself. I had aspirations to make a change in the world, to help people and contribute to saving the environment. How would I do this if I continued working with people that cared more about money?

 

When I went back to work I couldn't find joy and bliss in what I was doing. I had begun an awakening and my perception had shifted. I tried negotiating with my business partner to sell the company or buy me out, but after 6 months of negotiating we reached stale mate. In a heated argument I was locked out of the business and told never to come back. The shock hit me hard and I fell into a depressive and anxious state. Without a salary or any certainty that I would receive my share in the company I had to move back home with my mum, sell my cars and start again. 

 

" It felt like failure but it was just the starting point of the most amazing opportunity I could have asked for. "

 

I was proud to have learned that there is more to life than making money, but the old version of myself (my ego and my self-image) still had a strong hold over me. I knew that if I was going to connect with like-minded individuals and follow my true path then I would first need to discover who I really am. I began a journey of self-development, understanding how my mind worked in order to master it. I wanted to be assertive, sure of myself and open to meeting new people without being misled. I wasn't sure how I would do this so I just followed my inner guidance, travelled to new places, met new people, read book after book and studied psychology and business. 

 

I studied inspirational people like Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Tony Robbins, Les Brown, Dr Wayne Dyer, Alan Watts and Sadhguru, taking different lessons from each of them. I listened to motivational videos every morning, ran 5-10k every day, trained weights in the gym 5-6 days per week and I submerged myself in positive content. I built exercises to redefine my mission statement, my values and my goals. I developed a new belief system to change my feelings, control my thoughts and control my world. I found faith in myself and others, and life began happening for me, not to me. 

 

I came to realise that if we spend our lives doing what other people we love, respect and honour think we should do, we will never develop our own gut instinct.

I do all of this while travelling the world and meeting new people - my two favourite things.

Hi I'm Will, a Business and Life coach with a passion for helping people wake up and live their best life destiny.

 

When I was younger, my inspiration came from money, girls and popularity. My goal was to be a millionaire at 25 and although I didn't know how, I always knew that that was my destiny. (The belief I held is known as the power of knowing - knowing something to be true will mold your perspective of life and manifest it into reality). There was something else that I always knew would happen in my life that wasn't so exciting...many of the inspirational leaders that I believed in made a million and lost a million before becoming the person they are known for today, and My Sister always said that I would be the same.
