A Little Bit About Me

I thought I'd share a personal story with you that may be encouraging and motivational for some people. Back in 2016, I applied for a job for the first time in my life at McDonald's, hoping to land the job to fund my future flight training to become a pilot after leaving school. Once my application was accepted, I sat waiting for an interview at the restaurant and from there everything couldn't have gone any worse than it did. Firstly, I walked into the wrong room which was for applicants that had already been accepted for the job and after feeling embarrassed about that situation I sat in the restaurant for over an hour waiting for my interview. During the interview I was a complete mess, to say the least. In my mind at the time, it was a complete and utter failure because, who fails an interview at McDonald's? However, looking back at this moment in my life, it was the best thing to ever happen to me. During that time, I was also working at my local flight school and cleaning the aircraft was part of the job, so I thought, why don't I start cleaning other peoples aircraft and start making some extra money on the side. From this my business Guest Aircraft Cleaning was born. So I set to work asking as many people as I could who needed their planes cleaned and I did whatever I could to make it happen. From this failure I learnt that I truly love business.

If I did get that job at McDonald's I know for certain that I wouldn't be where I am today. I have met so many amazing people in the aviation industry and have developed my passion for business and entrepreneurship. As Steve Jobs put it, "You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well-worn path, and that will make all the difference.” In short, you just never know where life might take you in the future and dare to dream big.
