The adage however, could be idealized as to being in concession to the success story of the British entrepreneur, Peter Jones.

He although being a very successful business man, is more famous for his engagement as a panelist, on the popular BBC television program, `Dragon’s Den which is presented by Evan Davids, in which Peter is the only remaining original investor. He currently resides in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire in the U.K.
Growing up in his birth county, Berkshire, where he attended, and received his junior and upper academic certifications, he always had dreams of one day owning and controlling a multimillion enterprise, this saw him regularly visit his father’s office, just to sit on his chair and pretend as if he was the manager. He at a young age while still in his junior’s decided to start a job in a tennis summer school, which was owned by his English teacher. Over a period of time working there, he got impressed with the manner in which his teacher had run the tennis school, this led to him deciding to open his own, ensuing the great amount of experience, and knowledge he believed to have gained working for his teacher.
In 1998, he decided to try again, he went on and established the phones international group. This time around the business continued to grow gaining a total of £14 million in the first year of its sales, and by the second year, an interesting £44 million. The establishment has grown and broadened its scope to other miniature branches, including the Generation telecom, which was later sold for millions of pounds. He is now also the owner of Jessops, which is a photographic retailing company in England.

Peter Jones had a career that was marked with ups and downs, the instability saw him go from owning cars such as a BMW, a Porsche, an expensive apartment, and basically living a really enjoyable and comfortable life, to a period where he had to sell almost all his entitlements, and sadly go back to living with his parents, a truly testing period. But amidst all this he didn’t give up, but saw this as a period to assess the mistakes which had led to all these, then through it learn and improve. Through his experience he gained control in the company in which he got employed in, and went on to try his entrepreneurial abilities in his new establishment, and the rest is history.
Jonny always had the dream of being a successful entrepreneur, a dream he worked hard to achieve through his unrelenting, and persistent attitude.
