When Sam joined our Buying Online Businesses programme he had been a plumber for eight years, and at the age of 26, was struggling with back issues that had him thinking of alternatives to the manual labour of plumbing.
After looking through a lot of options, he decided to join our team and work through the trainings while still working full time.
