I always attend classes after work in my work clothes. If you have not guessed from the condition of my clothes, I am a builder by day. I run the Aon Building Contractors www.aonbuild.com firm. I refurbish houses and though I do have people who help out, I prefer to get my hands dirty to get the work done.
Some people might have seen me on “Homes Under the Hammer” Series 20 episode 41, where I bought a house in East London at auction and refurbished it. Below are picture from another house I bought at auction.
I often recommend young people to consider a career in the building industry. There are lots of different area of specialisation. I have had a few guys who started their careers with me as a labourer, go on the learn the trade and eventually start own business. From their building careers, they have their own homes/mortgages, ski holidays, pets and 2.4 kids.
I do not recommend a career as a Martial arts instructor as the high hall rent and very stiff competition in London make it difficult to achieve. On the other hand there is a shortage of highly skilled tradesmen in London. If you want further advise in the building industry, please contact me. PS I am very busy and unable to do your works but if you need any free advice, you can call me.
