"I think it's an unwritten rule really. For me, I could cash in on who I've worked with over the last ten years and I could really go to town with it, but you lose that long-term credibility. I think people wouldn't call you and want to work with you if they knew you were that sort of person. And that's definitely something we've shied away from."
Former rugby player and personal trainer Tom Oliver is the founder of Tom Oliver Nutrition which sells fish oil supplements made from caviar and which will be in over 5,000 retailers around the globe in the next few months.
After leaving Richard Branson's school Stowe to become a professional rugby player with former European Champions Northampton Saints, Tom succumbed to a series of injuries and his pro career ended very early at the age of 22.
After re-training as a personal trainer he set up a lucrative business training some of the most high profile middle eastern families. With a keen interest in nutrition Tom developed his own product range who's fans include Gwyneth Paltrow, Daniel Craig, Brad Pitt, and Katy Perry. Tom Oliver Nutrition has already entered markets in Malta, Dubai and Singapore and has exciting growth plans for 2018.
Tom and I talk exchanging time for money, relationship building and being inspired by those you work with...and for.
