At aged 21, I Co-Founded a business called Social Chain Group. Socia Chain Group have a team of over 150 across Manchester, London & Berlin.
Social Chain Group has been voted one of Britains Fastest Growing Companies by the Sunday Times and has won a number of Awards in the last 3 years
Social Chain Group has an average age of 22 years old and works with clients like Superdry, Boohoo, and Nokia.
The last 3 years have been an incredible journey and as the business has grown I have learned a lot about myself.
18 Months after the founding of the company, when the team was at 50 people at 22 I made the choice to go TeeTotal. The reasons behind it were the pressure and stress from scaling the business lead to me developing anxiety. Alcohol was making it worse and amplifying the issues.
While overcoming Alcohol dependency I took up a running and went from spending my spare time partying and celebrating to focusing on my mental well being.
This blog will touch on how I’ve managed to cope with the world at 24.
Over the 12 months, I’m aiming to raise £12,000 for -The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) which is dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK.
