Well I am a 38-year-old man who has spent his life working in heavy engineering. I live here in Walton on the Naze on the sunny coast and I am looking to change my life by returning to the licensed trade. Yes I have heard all of the bad stuff and experienced some but I believe that I am part of a new generation of publicans that are looking to a lifestyle choice and not to make massive profits (not averse to them though) I don’t want the villa and flash car I want to be part of a community.
That’s my story, the blog exists to track the highs (there will be some) the lows and the general insanity that is both entering this trade and then surviving it. If you have ever fancied running a pub follow the blog to realise why you shouldn’t, if you like to sit in the warm and realise somebody is worse off then read on. If your Mrs thinks your lazy and not a ‘go getter’ tell her to read this and thank her lucky stars.
Join the ride and lets see where it goes, after all you only live once
