They say 'having a clear vision' is the key to a successful entrepreneur - one that has developed from first recognising an overwhelming opportunity - or in the words of Paul Deadman - a 'gap in the market' and then acting upon it.
Paul was a trained tyre and motor mechanic 'working for the man', when he and wife Michelle broke free to start their business 'Northants Mobile Tyres' in 2008, operating from their home in Desborough with their vision, skills determination and a van!
Paul's 'vision' was to make life easier for motorists by offering a tyre service that ''comes to you' - to fix a problem quickly and efficiently to get the customer on their way with minimal inconvenience and delay.
With low overhead expenses, he knew he was also able to offer a quality, in demand yet highly price competitive service.
He wasn't wrong - an online supply service followed and then as the business and customer demand was consistently growing, Paul and Michelle invested in the latest tyre changers and alloy wheel protection equipment to further ensure damage free tyre changing and to reassure their customers by offering the most up to date and highest quality service.
Taking advantage of this modern technology, they opened their Service Centre in Corby in August 2011 to complement their Mobile Tyre Service with onsite vehicle servicing and diagnostics.
Looking back, Paul reflects it wasn't always easy - eg riding the recession of 2009 when work 'dried up' when people temporarily went for cheaper remoulded tyres - but then the business quickly recovered, now also winning the confidence and contracts of local businesses, including major fleet and lease companies based on their reputation and exceptional customer service.
