About me

I am passionate about business and the people who take the time and trouble to start them. It is life transforming and those who make a success of it never look back.

I’ve been starting and growing businesses for over 40 years including QPL Express Couriers (1979), Apricote Studios (1985), Accountz (1999), ProofMEDIA (2014), and the ICA (2020).

What motivates me more than anything is seeing the joy people get when their first sales start coming through.

This is done through great marketing, and the simplest way to do that is by putting out content your audience is looking for.

Joining the ICA will help you do exactly that.
