Paul Gilbert worked in sales for over 25 years.  After the death of his father, Paul took a step back to re-evaluate his life and work out what he wanted to do.  Knowing he wanted to improve his work-life balance and spend more time with his family, Paul started to look at the self-employment options available to him.
