I'd figured that if I worked as hard for myself as I'd worked for others in the past then I could only be successful.

I came across thebestof.co.uk whilst looking for ideas and I was hugely impressed by how simple and effective the site was. Luckily for me Yeovil was available and the rest, as they say, is history.
