Paul Power was born in Cork, Ireland and emigrated to the UK in the late 1980s initially working in sales and later in the Civil Service, where he grew thoroughly miserable, packed it all in, vowing to never again work for anyone else, but himself.
He returned to the business he'd ran as a teenager, a Gardening Business, and started again, this time making it a huge success. His best selling book, Start and run a Gardening Business, which is written from 'the soil upwards', is now in its fourth edition and has helped many gardening entrepreneurs find their first steps into the world of self-employment and business.
Power recently retired from active gardening and now works with others to start and develop their own successful gardening business. He's also involved in a number of other independent businesses.
