Love the story of Mark Radcliffe. He first showed his entrepreneurial spirits when he lied about his age to get a job collecting eggs from battery hens.
He went on to do paper rounds and worked as a labourer at weekends to pay off a loan his mother took out to buy a hi-fi he wanted.
Mark even started an online mobile phone accessories business which he flogged for £80,000.
Now he has cleaned up. Back in 2000 he started Victorian Plumbing from his dad’s garden shed. All online it was always profitable and now Mark, 42, has announced it is going to float on the stock market valuing the business anywhere between £800-£1billion.

He employs over 500 people in Merseyside and a digital hub in Birmingham.
What I love about Mark’s success is that it is so rare. Most startups fail but what keeps you going is that perhaps one day you may be a Mark.
The chances of that happening are small but we can always dream. It’s like the Lottery. The chances of winning are minute but to give yourself a chance buying a ticket would be helpful. Start your own business. Who knows you might be another Mark Radcliffe.
