ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Victor Green was born in London, England, to a middle class family. He had two brothers, one older and one younger. His parents were not in business, just average parents trying to do their best for their family.From a very young age, Victor had an old head on young shoulders; he often said he must have been 40 when he was born! For some unknown reason he had an incredible thirst and loads of energy, to learn, not at school, but about business matters and how he could make money.
He always wanted to know how business worked and how to do everything himself. This, in later years, became of great value. He was able to assess things quickly and with his firsthand knowledge knew what needed to be done in business situations. Because of this, he could spot opportunities quickly and move faster than others. Victor had business smarts and the ability to make quick decisions.
His energy, and inquisitive nature, made him look at many business opportunities, some of which he tried before he eventually became his own boss. Ideas such as: opening a deli, importing cuff links from the USA, silk ties from Italy, importing Sangria from Spain.
Victor started his business career in a menswear store at the age of 12, helping in the store after school.
When he left school, he went full time into the menswear business and became the store manager. This was a great job for a young man, but his energy and enthusiasm were not really suited to being behind a glass door of a store waiting for a customer to come in.
His frustration, on quiet days, made him look elsewhere to satisfy his hunger for greater success.
He was offered a new career opportunity and joined a publishing company, selling advertising space in their various periodical trade magazines. After several years at this job, he started his own publishing company.
He was married and had two kids, with one on the way, and decided to risk starting his own business venture as the publisher of his own trade magazine.
From this he went on to start many other businesses, such as organizing trade exhibitions, conferences and conventions, printing, advertising, direct mail, PR, photography, import and export, manufacturing, owning 2 Soccer clubs, website design, creating websites, real estate, finance company, business consulting, manufacturing men’s shoes, managing a rock band and developing a mobile app for snow clearing, judge/investor on a business TV show. He also mentored and lecturing on business matters.
His business experience also covers selling and acquiring businesses, helping company start-ups and revitalizing failing businesses. He is a “true serial entrepreneur” who has had great success in business.
Victor has had an interesting journey with many ups and downs, all of which he will share with you.
He will tell you how to make your business succeed and the things he did wrong so that you will not make the same mistakes.
Victor will soon be launching a new online streaming show which will help young people get investment, up to $250,000, plus guidance for their new business idea. The show is called Newpreneurs and you can find out about this by clicking onto Newpreneurs.com
