Starting a business successfully has come about from a natural desire to really help people get started in their own business.
Hi, I’m Sammuel Yisrael. Life for me has always been about assisting others to ensure that their goals are achieved. In 2002 I found my self out of work and rather disillusioned as I had been made redundant following a company merger, despite many reassurances that my job was safe.
Previously I had been travelling two hours to work, in Didcot, Oxfordshire, however my wife was expecting our second child and was struggling with the pregnancy getting to a point where she could not walk.
So I started my own business from home.I chose to use a networking company or MLM as the basis of my business building a customer base from the Small Business and Residential markets. I devoted my self to this full time for three years making enough just to get by.
Through it was hard work it was worth it as I was able to work from home and be there for my children growing up.In 2005 I was head hunted to join an aerospace company as a test design engineer; working on designing equipment to ensure the aircraft engine worked correctly prior to it getting on an aeroplane.
As the Lead Test Design Engineer, I played a key role in the development and realisation of a new test strategy, from providing the first concept presentation, supporting documentation to the design, and development and delivery of the required hardware and software interfaces.
I found the work challenging and rewarding however became frustrated by the politics within the work place and the lack of requisition for the success I had achieved
During my time as a Lead Test Design Engineer, I was constantly using consultants/contractors to enable me to achieve the project deadlines and saw an opportunity for my self to fill this market need.
So I started my own consulting business which I have run successfully for the last 5 years, working with a number of large companies where I have developed strategies to reduce their costs and meet their deadlines on time.It was only when I applied my self to something that I truly enjoyed that the money started to flow.
During these last few years I have met many people who have asked my advice on how to go about starting a business.Even recently I have been involved with developing a business plan for the Samba band that I play in to reform it into a social enterprise.
This web site was born out of my desire to really enable and help people and to give them the best chance in starting a business successfully.
