Paul Mumford is a man of many talents. He describes himself as “Fitness Chap, Radio Presenter, Filmmaker”. As a former Breakfast Radio presenter on SGR, Paul is these days a qualified personal trainer, nutritionist and resident health expert for BBC Radio Essex. He is also the author of a book called The Accumulator, which he has documented into a program and video series. All of this as well as being a “bare foot runner”. In this wide ranging and refreshing podcast, Paul expands on his varied career and talks about ‘the breaks that fixed him’ and why he used to be known as “Frankie”…”I like to have a certain amount of control but then see where life takes me”. He is inspired by the movie; Sliding Doors. After always wanting to be on the radio, Paul started as a DJ in clubs, then hospital radio and was the “flying eye” presenting travel news, before getting his first big break as a breakfast radio presenter. During this time he developed a back problem which led him down a physiological and fitness route. He soon developed a passion for it and when things changed at the radio station, he simply thought “what else do I enjoy?” And qualified as a personal trainer. Another break. Video production (Paul’s videos are great!) is another passion and one which he also turned into a business. His own podcast – The Big Little Business Show – aimed at entrepreneurs, is also about to launch. “I just say yes to things. I’m in my 4th career now”, he smiles. For anyone with entrepreneurial tendencies who thinks they might have left it too late, this podcast will surely inspire you to think again!
