Nigel's entrepreneurial journey began at 26 years old when he made the bold decision to leave behind a life of mediocrity in the corporate world. Despite facing initial doubts and uncertainties, Nigel took a leap of faith into the unknown, driven by a desire for more in life. This leap of faith, as Nigel describes it, is a pivotal moment that all entrepreneurs must face a moment of uncertainty and risk that ultimately leads to growth and success.

 

Triumphs and trials
