Some thoughts from the interview

“I started off in 2010 and I was looking for something to do with myself and I saw the movie the 40 year old virgin. There is a shop in that movie where they sell good on eBay for other people and I thought that was a great idea, easy to get into with spending a fortune.”

“We opened up an auction house, I put an ad up on gumtree and found someone to help me. I bought a little shop, put signs up, did flyers around town and the goods started to come in. That built up then into a business with 4 or 5 people.”
