    How I Survived Night of Horror with Tommy Kelly

    How I Survived Night of Horror with Tommy Kelly

    In this episode of Screw It Just Do It, I chatted with Tommy Kelly, a former Royal Marine Commando turned entrepreneur. Co-founder of Jöttnar, a highly technical outdoor clothing brand, Tommy shares his journey from navigating the harsh environments of the Arctic Circle to pioneering innovations in the outdoor apparel industry.

    Discover how his military experiences, especially his challenging 'night of hell', have shaped his business and approach to overcoming adversity.

    We gain insights into Tommy's early aspirations to join the Marines, the elite Mountain Leader Troop, and the pivotal moments that led him and fellow Marine Steve Howarth to identify a gap in the high-performance outdoor gear market.

    This episode not only explores the critical lessons learnt in the extremities of both nature and business but also delves into the importance of resilience, adaptation, and the crucial need for downtime in achieving long-term success.

    The Truth of my Life & Football Career: Jimmy Glass

    The Truth of my Life & Football Career: Jimmy Glass

    Today, we're diving deep into a story that's etched in football legend, a tale of determination, resilience, and an iconic moment that transcends the sport itself. We're talking to none other than Jimmy Glass, the goalkeeper whose last-minute goal for Carlisle United back in 1999 kept the club in the Football League, securing his place in football folklore.

    But Jimmy's story is far more than just that one goal. It's a narrative of highs and lows, of a career that's seen its fair share of unexpected twists. From the heights of that unforgettable match to the challenges of life after professional football, including driving a taxi and the introspective journey that led him to find fulfilment beyond the pitch.

    In this candid conversation, Jimmy opens up about the moments that have shaped his life and career. From the brandy that calmed his nerves before the game that would define his career, to the mixed emotions towards the legendary goal, and the realisation that, in many ways, he didn't fulfil the potential he saw for himself in football. Jimmy discusses the impact of that goal not just on his career but on his life, describing it as "much more than me, my journey and my life."

    He also shares insights into the aftermath of that surreal moment, the struggles of balancing life and mindset after football, working with AFC Bournemouth, and the importance of managing emotions. Jimmy's story is a powerful reminder of the resilience needed both on and off the field, the ability to adapt, and the never-ending quest to entertain and inspire.
