Company: Discover Your Bounce
**Twitter: ** @Bounce2Success
Company founded: 2013
What is your favourite business book and why?
31 Days to Millionaire Marketing Miracles by Tracy Repchuk.
I read the book and did Tracy's year long course. She showed me how everything we do is linked and has a system behind it. I met Tracy six months after I created Discover Your Bounce and our frameworks have a great deal of what I have learned.
Who is your business hero and why?
My good friend Darren Clark runs The Spotless Group and has successfully grown his companies and brand into a strong group. I am a couple of years behind Darren in business and love his vision and values. He's a lovely person and this shines through everything Spotless does.

What has been your biggest challenge?
When it comes to business I am a really passionate person and throw myself into everything I do. In my last venture the stress of this caused me to have a stroke at 40!
After making a full recovery I am learning to create a global business while being around for my family and keeping my health as my top priority. I need to do this to walk my talk as this is the raison d'Ãªtre for Discover Your Bounce, but it can be a challenge at busy times!
What has been your greatest success?
In three years we have grown our company, trademarked, licensed our products and created programmes that make a big difference in people's lives. We have worked with thousands of people to create real life improvements which is awesome!
I think my greatest success was compiling The Missing Piece in Bouncing Back, which made 24 people international amazon bestsellers and took me to Boston on a fabulous speaking tour, including a presentation at Harvard and speaking to 100 scientists about mind, body and spirit.
What piece of advice do you wish you had known when starting out?
That everything can be learned and people want to help you. It's ok to not know some parts of where you want to take your business if you build a network and ask lots of questions!
Why do you consider long-term strategic advice important to business success?
I believe we should have a clear vision of what we want to achieve long term, but not necessarily the how. When we get bogged down in the detail we can easily miss synchronicities and creative ideas that may take us to our goal in an easier way. Have a plan but don't be afraid to deviate - some of our best outcomes initially seemed to be taking us off plan!
If you had a superpower what would it be and why?
To be able to teleport! I have been asking for a teleport for my birthday for years! Wouldn't it be great to travel, or nip to see your bestie without hours on a plane?!
Martin's masterclass, how to get your products listed in big retail stores, is at 12.30pm on 18 October. To register for the masterclass go here or log in to your membership account and go to the events page to join in for free.
