Welcome to the RMhub! As the head of business here, please get in touch if there's anything business-related that we haven't yet covered.
At the age of 20 I started my first business. After achieving some success, I feel an obligation to do whatever I can to help others who are in need. RMhub allows me to share my knowledge, and hopefully contribute towards inspiring people to believe in themselves.
I was a smart kid with huge ambitions from a very young age. The first career vision I can remember having was to become an astronaut. This dream was suddenly shot down as I was told that unfortunately, only a genius could travel into space, and I was just a kid on a council estate in Hull.
I never lost my love for science though, even to this day. It was always my favourite subject and that led me to go and study Medical Science at college.
A couple of years later and I was in the real world. I tried a few different jobs but nothing appealed to me. I’ve just never understood how people can live their entire lives spending most of their time doing something they hate.
I envisioned being able to work on something that I actually enjoyed, actually feeling like I was moving forward and working towards my ambitions.
This is when I began thinking about starting my own business.
I had a range of ideas and eventually, after struggling to find an affordable, made-to-measure suit, decided I was going to start an online suit company. I didn’t know anything about business or how I was going to make it become a reality but I was committed and felt as though I had nothing to lose.
Alongside this, I was working 70 hours a week in order to earn an income and get set up. Any extra money would go straight into the business. I thought of this as a necessary stepping stone in order to get to where I wanted.
And eventually I did. Comerford’s Custom Clothing was launched in 2017.
