How Many Individual Businesses Have You Been Involved In?



New Member
So far I have only been directly involved in three different businesses, helping to set them up while I’m only actively involved in working for myself at the moment. I will be interested to learn the number of businesses other members have been involved in.

I have owned 3 businesses, each has progressed to the next as markets changed and opportunities arose. I'm a instrument engineer by trade and most of my work was in the metro them sector.

This lead to me diversifying into design of plants and expanding beyond the metro chemical sector. Photography was instrumental took in acquiring data for primary design concepts, computers played a high role through out my career in both business and design.

When I sold my design/consulting business in 2002 and took my technical photography skills to start my current commercial studio which took me away from my roots but utilised the skills I acquired during my career.
