Ainsley, 41, has seven children. He provides a bespoke service to small businesses and individuals. He buys food supplies such as fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs etc and then sells on to his customers at a small profit. He also does fruit baskets for all occasions, and this is the fastest growing element of his business.
Before we met Ainsley, he tells us he was unsure about marketing or getting funding. He had just been made redundant and had seven hungry mouths to feed. It was definitely time for some action, but he needed that spark to get things going.
That is when, through the recommendation of Broadway, he came across the Tree Shepherd course at Spires in Streatham. As they say, ‘the rest is history’.
