Today I sat at the feet of an extraordinary man. Lord Robert Edmiston. Born in India, grew up in Kenya, started selling flowers at the age of 11, Baron Edmiston, is one of Britain’s most effective philanthropists, giving away “180 million pounds”, all cash generated through hard work, thinking big and turning problems into opportunities initially through the motor trade, and also through property.

So what did I learn? Well, in the midst of trouble look to see where the sometimes, overlooked assets are and indentify also what the problems are. Why, well because behind every problem is a solution waiting to happen, and perhaps the “trouble” has blinded your eyes to what your real assets are. Interesting!
He also explained how to start a business with no money! Finally, after questions he explained that he was a tad unsteady on his feet, due to vertigo. Needless to say, it was my privelidge and honour to act as a leaning post for this most inspiring man whose Christian faith is clearly his driving force.
Thanks to Matt Bird and the Cinnamon Network for bringing it all together.
