JUST over a decade ago I had a successful business, a loving family and expensive cars on the driveway to my home a few months later in December 2008, I lost it all when my car finance business Creditlab went bust during the height of the financial crisis.
But fast forward just over 10 years and I have turned it around my businesses’ Wheels4Sure and Buy2LetCars achieved a total turnover of £4.3million in the 12 months to the end of 2018.
Looking to the future, I have launched another business called Lifestyle Bids which allows people to bid for luxury products at a price they can afford, the lowest unique bid automatically wins.
My ethos as a responsible business owner is to be constantly thinking of how to keep the wheels of business moving forward, I have an obligation to my investors, stakeholders, family and staff.

Reg’s Top Tips on how to make it
- Figure out why you’re starting the business: If the first answer is that you want to make money, then you’re wrongfooted already. What I do right now it’s not work for me, it’s a joy to go. You must find your passion.
- Think about what you want to do with this: Once you’ve found your passion, you should figure out what you want to do with this. You need to have a clear vision.
- Decide how and when you want to achieve it: The last thing you need to ask yourself is how to make your dream happen and when you want it to. A lot of people hold themselves back because they think they have to have every answer before they start, but that’s silly. As long as you know your why, your road map and where you’re going, you’ll figure out the rest along the way.
