The Words of Encouragement……
Tom is a remarkable young man and certainly has a business head on him at only 12! I really believe Tom will go far and as for the dyslexia he has already shown he can overcome this. He is the kind of person that will not let anything stand in his way of achieving what he wants. I wish him all the best and know he will go far in whatever he decides to do. It is so refreshing to hear something positive about teenagers instead of all the negative press they get, his parents must be so very proud of him.

Tom's spirit of enterprise reminds me very much of myself as a child. I was a hunter gatherer from the age of seven and a rich young man at the age of 10.
I believe that you can achieve anything with hard work and determination and it seems to me that Tom has both qualities . Follow your dream - I wish you every success.

Tom is doing a fantastic job, forward thinking and plugging a nice loophole in the market. The catering world could do well to look at this young man, and see his determination to succeed, it's great to see the future for him is looking rosy. Good on him!
