Alan graduated from Loughborough University in Geography and Sport Science in 2013. Rather than deciding to go down the conventional graduate job career route, the idea of the One Pound Challenge was born. The aim behind this year long challenge was to raise financial awareness, instil hope and inspire audacious generosity through the development of a business.
Starting with investing in a bottle of washing up liquid, his business turned over more than £38,500, by taking on over 100 different job opportunities.
A year later and the £1 investment has turned into over £20,000, and Alan is planning to publish a book about his experiences in the future.
