I often get bored with a steady life and doing the same thing for a long time; these things scares me a lot.

Setting up Ampoweruk Ltd has given me a wonderful vision, which is to build a successful business, not to become successful myself but make those who work with me and their families to be happy and prosperous. As well as feeling proud to be associated with Ampower.
