A successful businessman and self-made millionaire, Tony O’Shaughnessy is inspired by philosophers who think differently and who challenge the world. His own philosophy saw him grow and sell his tech business, ABS for millions a decade ago, as well as later operating a restaurant business in Somerset. Tony likes to keep things simple and has some simple messages in this inspiring podcast for anyone with aspirations to make it in business. Tony emphasises the importance of purpose, of listening, of humility and surrounding yourself with positive people. Inspired by Simon Sinek, intrigued by Donald Trump, Tony talks openly about the ambition, risk and luck that are all needed to make it in business. “Everybody gets luck. It’s what you do with it.” he smiles. “You can’t get off the ground without some expertise in your field. But that’s only 10%. The other 90 comes from your heart. It’s belief and attitude.” All of this plus dogs and grandchildren, Tony’s not done yet you feel; “You’re never too old to learn” is his parting shot in this wisdom packed podcast.
