About this Podcast Episode

Rod, carved his path in the business world through floor fitting. His journey began in the industry while working for a football manager’s business, eventually leading him to establish a separate department for private floor fitting projects. In 2019, just before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rod took the leap into self-employment. Since then, he has gained firsthand experience navigating the challenges and intricacies of running a business, gaining valuable insights into the demanding nature of entrepreneurship.
