We want to give our members here in the East of England a platform for telling us all about their experiences of self-employment and their reasons for being a member of the FSB. We spoke to serial Entrepreneur James (Jim) Randall of Wootten in Bedfordshire who operates under the name J Randall
“In 1969 I was an engineering design draughtsman with an engineering apprenticeship behind me and HND in engineering by the time I was 21.
“My motto is "master of all and jack of none" a phrase that has served me well. This must have worked as I have had a word of mouth career with a 2-year waiting list for the last 20 years apart from during the 80's recession when it went down to three months. Some of my skills are architecture, signwriting, plastering, bricklaying, joinery, French-polishing, engineering, 3D modelling, veneering, aircraft remodelling, electrical, and software writing.”
“I have built houses on my own and about 30 extensions, though I always seemed to come back to furniture and kitchen design, manufacture and installation as a preferred occupation interspaced with bathrooms as it became more common to have built-in furniture as part of the design. I was constantly in demand and to this day have daily calls for new projects. I have also taught DIY on stage at "The little theatre Dunstable" to teach the public and scene/set builders new skills.
“All this said, my mind-set at 21 was to pursue my hobbies and do them with excellence to the point they were in demand. This meant taking on more and more hobbies, and it still goes on. It has been a lifetimes business philosophy.
