Biography

Graham is a 64 year old Geordie, brought up on Tyneside from where he escaped to the South East during the Thatcher Recession of the late 1970s.

He had a 25 year corporate career ending up as a director of Texas Instruments, heading up a division producing billing systems for the booming telecoms sector in the 1990s. He was making lots of money while his tax bill was single-handedly supporting the NHS. Strangely, no letters of thanks were ever received…  

On the advice of a colleague he became a client of a professional wealth manager. They put all his money in the NASDAQ which was on a tear in the late 1990s. Unfortunately they left it there right through the crash of 2000/2001. After informing him of the loss of £151,600 in 18 month, they told Graham that his net worth was now below the level at which they operated so he was fired as a client!

After informing him of the loss of £151,600 in 18 month, they told Graham that his net worth was now below the level at which they operated so he was fired as a client!

After his anger subsided and he had faced the embarrassment of telling his wife Daphne about the losses, Graham realised that it had all been his own fault. He hadn’t simply delegated his financial affairs, he had abdicated them.

In June 2001 Graham started the journey to the financial freedom that he now enjoys. He reverse engineered his journey into a special report – The 7 Steps To Financial Freedom. This is available on request – just contact us.
