Earlier on this summer, I won a ‘re tweet’ from multi millionaire and former Dragons Den panellist Theo Paphitis via his Twitter account. His ‘Small Business Sunday’ competition, shortened to the twitter hash tag, #SBS, is viewed by his 400,000 followers all around the world. Theo is a business hero of mine, so today will be very exciting for me. I will travel down to the ICC centre in Birmingham to meet him in person as part of my competition prize. – I get to have a photo of us together, so I will publish this in a future column. I am currently supporting the Movember charity campaign this month by growing a moustache. Sadly my itchy and unruly tache will also feature in the photo with him! – During the day I will get to meet fellow #SBS winners from around the UK. They come from all sorts of business backgrounds, some work from home part time, while others are multi millionaires themselves. It will be great to network with them and share ideas that I can bring home to Selby and put into place with my own business practices. Theo’s successful high street company Ryman Stationary, will be providing senior executives at the event to give advice and guidance with any business questions we have. – Back in July, our twitter account had hundreds of ‘congratulation’ tweets, so it will be great to meet some of these people. I have also been allowed to create an profile on his website, and we will be given advice on how to use this to create future business contracts. For anyone wishing to donate to my Movemeber fund-raising, please see the details on our facebook page.
