Kevin Godbold

After an early career in electrical engineering and management with one of the then nationalised regional electricity boards Kevin figured he could run a tighter ship and left to set up his own engineering services enterprise. Fifteen years later in 2004, after growing the business to employ several operatives, he sold it as a going concern - that didn't prove to be the easiest path to take in life, but the end result was satisfactory! Selling the business realised the inherent value, left Kevin mortgage-free, and provided a pot of free capital to indulge a growing interest in investing. These days he scratches his entrepreneurial itch by investing on the stock market and, although generally preferring to invest in small expanding businesses, he likes to remain flexible and open to other investment opportunities as well. Whilst aspiring to learn from the wisdom and experiences of others, Kevin usually finds that he learns best by making his own mistakes. He therefore makes many mistakes, both in investing and in life. Happily, many of his investments and life decisions have been good ones too.
