For me would be simply be, for 6 years I have traded and cut my teeth with partners, and for a couple of years as part of trio.

Well 2015 I was able to break away and set up on my own 100% - make my own decisions and also my mistakes :)

Yes I owe the bank some dosh but it's been a good year overall and hopefully will be a better 2016 for us all!!

Decreasing my average days to sell from 75 in January to around 45 now, all without sacrificing profit - its made a massive impact on bottom line,. But the best thing has to be being able to bring my grandson into the business as an apprentice, seeing him grow and putting the hours in, is the best reward, means its all been worthwhile as it'll all be his sooner or later.

Merry Christmas all and here's to a great 2016
