“Just go for it, don’t say OK well maybe I’ll do it tomorrow, maybe I’ll do it next week, just take the bull by the horns and go for it” Michael from Supplement Warehouse

Michael has been in the supplement business for approximately 11 years starting way back in 2004. Finally in 2008 he took the chance to buy out the owner of the company so he could pursue his own eCommerce adventures. In 2011 he took the chance to open up a store in East London which runs alongside their own multi-channel websites and has now been running for 4 years and it’s been very successful. The family run business focuses their lives around health and fitness so the company is a joy for them to work with. Please take your time to check out Supplement Warehouse!

“Do it now, if you’re looking into it, just do it, because if you’re not going to do it tomorrow you can do it today” Simon from Duke Gifts

Duke Gifts is all about printed personalised gifts, there’s now a lot of people doing a similar thing, but when Simon started it was all about his graphic design being the best of the best! All of the products on the site are made by Simon himself, and then printed onto physical items such as mugs, teddy bears, bottles, money boxes… Just a whole host of items. You won’t find these items anywhere else in the world, they are totally unique. The company now sells over 200 items a day starting in February 2014, so the company has really set off “Snowball” start.
