Pete has been in business for 30 years now. He first started in the nightclub industry, and at the time being one of the youngest nightclub managers in the Uk at the time. Prior to his venturing down the copywriting route, he’s had his hands heavily involved in business.
This ranged from him running his own businesses or other peoples.
Pete took up copywriting as a career when he relocated with his family to Cyprus. During this time he took a year out where he really just drank, travelled and went sightseeing. During this period he figured out he wanted to do something else, with writing and communication always being a passion of his that caught his interest. This was between 2009 and 2012 where he spent most of his time writing copy for other people or businesses he was involved with around the time.
Today we are discussing Pete’s transition from copywriting to consultancy, the legalisation of marijuana and how digital entrepreneurs are affected by Brexit.
