CHECK OUT PHIL FRASER:
Phil Fraser successfully founded, ran, and subsequently sold a multi-award-winning online gaming affiliate business in a multi-million-pound sale to a PLC. You can have that business experience by your side to help and support you as a Business Owner to improve you and your business.
He spent 15 years in the advertising industry, first selling advertising space in magazines and then 7 years in a fantastic advertising agency. Phil pitched for angel investment for a new online business and failed. Off the back of the failed pitch, they pivoted to create a completely different start-up business.
From this zero-funded home start-up, they went through all of the growth phases and stresses & strains, blood, sweat, and tears of growing into a profitable business. Over 18 years, the business grew to become an industry authority, a market leader and won many industry awards. In 2018 they sold the business to a PLC, completing the journey.
