"Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm." Winston Churchill - My favourite quote, perhaps this defines an entrepreneur?!
My objective by signing up to ecademy is to create a network of useful contacts. If you think you could be one of these please message me.
My full name is Jonathan London and I am 25 years old. I'm a marketing guru and I run a few businesses.
Growing up, I didn't believe that the education system was for me, but I have never been a quitter so I stuck at it. I managed to achieve respectable GSCEs and then went on to further my education at college. Once I had completed college I trained and became qualified as an RYA sailing instructor, I did this for a few years at a centre in Essex called Bradwell Outdoors, but cold hands and routine set in and so I decided it was time for a new challenge so I went to university.
I have always loved boats and consider the sea to be my place where I can think and be inspired. My first job was as a boat boy, I used to help out the harbour master at a local Marina going around in a little boat collecting people's dues. Nowadays I spend about 25% of my time playing boats and 75% working.
What inspires/drives me?
In short, an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for the great outdoors. I am a committed Christian so it's not about wanting to be rich and famous because I know that money alone will never result in a fulfilled life. Money can't buy happiness but it does open more doors of opportunity. Since I became a Christian I continue to pray for doors to open and close to keep me on track, and I can testify that more doors have opened than closed. My ultimate vision is to work with young people and share the good news and encourage them on their life journey.
Thank you for your interest.
