Marketing company owner credits Appco for his business success
Odysseus Advertising owner Jack Burnett credits Appco Group UK with helping turn his life-long ambition of owning a business into a reality within just five years.
After starting out as a field representative, Jack became a marketing company owner before he reached the age of 25. He says it is the importance Appco places on staying positive and focused that has had a particularly strong effect on him…
I was a visual merchandiser, but I was finding it hard to progress at the rate that I wanted to. I took a field-marketing role with one of the companies that works with Appco Group UK because it was clear to me that it would give me the opportunity to develop my career at my own pace.
I always knew I wanted to run my own business, but being part of this network gave me direction and belief because I could see so many other successful people achieving great things in relatively short periods of time.
There is a lot of emphasis on persistence, building relationships, learning from others, working with people effectively and, above all, maintaining a positive outlook and focus.
I believe these are the main reasons I have been able to build my own company to where it is today. Now I’m setting my sights even higher, with plans to expand overseas and retire within 10 years.
I never thought that one day I might be involved in different countries around the world, but I’ve already been given the opportunity to assist a company in Canada.
Once I have built my business in the UK, I have a plan to move to the United States and establish another marketing company there, which is amazing!
One of my goals has always been to retire early and be able to enjoy life, and work because I want to and not because I have to.
I’m not yet 30 and I honestly believe that, with the way things have gone so far and a lot more hard work, I will be able to do this by the age of 40 at the latest.
