After graduating I decided to chase my dream of earning a living from equestrianism, which has always been my passion. I established my own company Unique Carriage Services Ltd, providing horse drawn wedding and funeral services across the North East of England. I experienced good success, however due to the economic downturn when the UK went into recession, I quickly realised people didn’t have as much flexible income. I realised that I wasn’t going to provide myself with the lifestyle I aspired towards so I began to search for a new career challenge. I began working in the sales and marketing industry in Newcastle, UK in June 2013. I had zero experience in the marketing and sales field but thanks to the dedicated and talented group of people I had the fortune of working with, and the incredible training I received from the company, I was able to gain all of the necessary skills and knowledge to be able to run my own business in the industry. I am particularly excited to be part of an industry with incredible expansion opportunities, and I look forward to establishing STAG Group Inc. as a leading direct marketing company in the US.
