Touchstone Education founder Paul Smith welcomes guests from various fields and backgrounds into the studio to discuss the important lessons and key insights they've picked up along the way as they blaze their own trail.
014 Nick Rowland
In this episode of the Trailblazer Podcast I am privileged to be joined by my good friend and corporate magnate – now transitioned property entrepreneur, Nick Rowland.
Nick was not like the other kids growing up, due to his severe dyslexia it was always an uphill battle for him in his school days, but refused to let it defeat him.
Many of the greats, some of whom I know personally, have suffered with this form of impairment yet go on to achieve inconceivable heights in their respective fields.
013 Frank Bruno
Welcome back to the Trailblazer Podcast!
This week I am absolutely elated to be joined by boxing superstar, and former Heavyweight Champion of the World: Frank Bruno
In this inspiring interview, Frank talks about his childhood, and what it was like growing up and how he dealt with suffering the loss of his father at the age of 14.
He shares his story, and his motivation to get in to the world of boxing, changing his, and his families lives forever.
012 Micah Berg
Welcome to the latest edition of the Trailblazer podcast. Today I am interviewing my good friend, and business partner from across the pond – Micah Berg.
Micah owns a Holiday rental company in Florida, United States called Real Joy vacations
Abi Hookway and Gordie Dutfield
Gordie is part of the touchstone education team, he has been involved in sales for his entire life, previously running a large sales company. He is now involved in building the touchstone brand
Abi is managing director for the Paragon Group, she has a large amount of previous experience in senior management roles.
They each run their own Serviced Accommodation business.
On this weeks Trailblazer podcast, I am delighted to be joined by Scott Weir, a Mancunian born Scotsman, and a truly inspirational human being.
As Scottish as Scott sounds, he was actually originally born in Manchester, and was then moved to Scotland with his parents at the age of 3.
He first noticed that life was different for him, when he was mixing with the other children and realised it wasn’t normal to not see your parents all the time.
Toyin & Tobi Ayandare
Two previous highly paid consultants in their respective fields,
Toyin and Tobi made the leap into property about 10 years ago, and began seriously investing in property 6 years ago, they now make multi million pound commercial deals, and run a large, successful SA business.
The main decision makers for their jump into property full time, were their 2 beautiful children now ages 5 and 8, the lack of ‘ job security ‘ , and a desire for a different life.
