Ben has always had something of an entrepreneurial streak. Aged 13 he wanted to earn money, so I set up his own car washing business - which was quite successful!.

When he was a little older he ran his own night at a local nightclub, and at 21 he established an internet kiosk company and I was the first person in the UK to sell premium ringtones!
