Dental Assistant · August 1994 to September 1995 · Bolton

When I left school I and having worked full-time over the summer I had got used to a wage coming in and I thought that getting a job would be the best thing to do. I was promised day release to college to study dentistry if my grades were good enough.

This turned out to be one of those stepping stones in life that you have to take. It made me work out that what I really needed to do was to go to college and do something that I might actually enjoy.

If I hadn’t made this mistake then I wouldn’t be as successful as I currently am. My boss treated unfairly and made me feel horrible every day and handing my notice to him was one of the happiest days of my life.
