I first launched OliverKenyon.com back in 2013. I think I wrote about 6 posts and shut it down. Back then I was only a year or so into full time online employment and I hadn’t yet learnt the trade properly. I think in all honesty it was a little premature of me and I didn’t have the time to maintain my companies and sites along side a content driven blog. Now a few years older and wiser a lot has changed! If you’d like an update on whats been going on you can read about me here.
I’m now reopening and properly starting my first ever personal blog. The reason the time is right for me now is because i’ve been able to streamline my business in order to free up some time. I now run several online companies and have several members of staff which allows me to invest my time and money into other ventures along side growing those current. I’ve always looked at some of my online idols and their blogs in envy and wished I could do the same, so i guess this is my attempt!
In all honesty I don’t want to make money from my blog I just hope I can share my experiences and look back in years to come to hopefully see my journey from chef to successful online entrepreneur. I also want to help those who wish to follow in my footsteps by blueprinting my every step. I currently run several online companies turning over good profits and am incredibly excited to be involved in one of the hottest start ups in the automotive space. For more about what i’m currently working on check my portfolio.
I’m a big believer in branding yourself along side your companies, so for me this blog completes the circle from website to company to man behind the company.
I didn’t know what to write for my first ever blog post so I thought i’d share some of my favourite bloggers first ever posts along side my first ever post!
