One man's adventure turning adversity into opportunity with a Masters in Business Administration.

What is MBA Launch Pad and why does it matter ?

Have you ever reached a point in your life when you felt like you needed a reboot or a relaunch ? I know I have.

Not so long ago I was made redundant, the last in a line of events that brought me to this point.

Faced once again with finding employment, 600 job applications later and having exhausted all means of financial support, I decided it was time to step up.

Having built a series of businesses which I bootstrapped to six figures the financial crisis came, customers went bust owing me money and I was forced to return to salaried employment.   This time around I’m not yet in a position to start a new venture which can support my new family and I, so in the short term I’ve decided to leverage my skills and experiences.

So after 20 years of ups and downs and despite lacking the immediate funds to do so, I’ve decided to pursue something that will stay with me for the next 20 years of my life and help make tomorrow’s business better for everyone, an MBA.

Whilst there is much more to this story (and more to come), I know you don’t have a lot of time so …..
