About me

ANDY WOOD
“Knowledge, skills, and effort can take you anywhere you want to be!”

This is my personal blog, covering entrepreneurship skills, self-improvement, and other random things that I find interesting.

Posts are a blend of my own thoughts and articles written by others. Every day, well most days, I trawl the Internet looking for stuff to share with you. I am the algorithm, so I pick what interests me!

All of this is presented in a no-nonsense, no-bs manner – up-front and personal.

Sounds interesting? Then feel free to have a poke around and maybe if the urge takes you, leave a comment or two.

Born in England. Average at school. Started work at 17: digging holes and climbing telephone poles. Bored easily so blagged my way into University: degree and masters in electronics. Back to work. Found myself in senior management. Learned lots about running a business.

Involved in a few start-ups: some worked, some definitely did not. Secured over $200m in venture capital. Listed in the Who’s Who of British Business Elite.

Set up my own consulting and coaching business, me+laptop+phone. Generated multiple 7-figures. Bored of travel and being away from home. Retired to do what I want – currently a mixture of dog walking, photography and writing.

Clever, insightful and laugh out loud funny. It eerily mirrors many aspects of the Trump Administration.

By the time I was done, I knew the direction I needed to take with my own efforts in branding, messaging, and making content for my target audience. Some great examples throw in as well.
