In the late 90's, Pete was running a dotcom business when he decided to start teaching evening classes at a local college and found it was a great way to get clients. He enjoyed teaching so much he got his PhD in e-Business.⠀

Something interesting about Pete is that he ended up in the ER with stress induced diabetes and spent 3 days in intensive care. He knew he was under a lot of stress but didn't listen to his body, and while he was there he realised with the help of a nurse that he needed to make some changes so he started by resigning from his job. ⠀

Pete then started a journey of learning how to overcome stress and last year, published a book titled "Lighten Your Day: Fast, Easy and Effective Stress Relief for When Sh*t Happens".⠀

Pete is now semi retired and in February this year, started producing short podcasts with his LinkedIn connections as a way of cultivating relationships. He also publishes tips taken from his book each week that he hopes will be helpful to anyone overcoming stress. ⠀
