In closing, John has this to say …………… “Wisdom is the product of time & experience”

I have, over my thirty years in the small business environment come to realise that wisdom
truly is the product of time and experience. The most valuable business experiences one can
have, are not the smooth sailing ones, but rather the rough sea experiences. I have learnt
from many a ‘rough sea’ experience. Wisdom gained And own business experience enables
me to assist others as they enter or exit the business environment.
A well know investor once said – “Going into business is akin to marriage, don’t rush into
marriage, take your time”
