Tim is a man who has lived three different lives in three very different and diverse industries. In his younger years, he went to university to do a degree in computer science and artificial intelligence. Due to him not being a huge fan of maths he graduated with a general science degree. He then spent 8 years working for tech companies and carrying out support roles where necessary. He also worked in project management as well as product management.
A little bit tired of the corporate grind, He trained to be a personal trainer and was one for another 8 years and during that time he established a reputation as a tech orientated personal trainer. Extending support to other personal trainers who struggle with the general tech requirements of running a PT business.
He also got a little bit tired of that after several conversations with his entrepreneurial clients and gave up being a PT to set up his current venture Lean Greens. Which is a nutrition supplement company based in the UK. He has been working on this since 2012.
Today, you’ll discover more about Tim's business Lean Greens and how the guy who loathed maths is now using it to run a very successful business.
