An Inspiring Turnaround Story From An Irish Entrepreneur

Business and life are never straight-forward. And if you run your own business you know that it presents a unique set of challenges. In 2009 I met a Dublin based business owner, Morgan Browne. In the space of a couple of months he’d lost 2 deals worth €400k which was essential to cash-flow, had to let go key members of his team and the banks halved the company’s overdraft and credit facilities. He was a few weeks from going out of business. He had also been prescribed anti-depressants and made a throw-away remark which has since become a joke between us…’At least it can’t get any worse’. I said ‘Never say that. It can always get worse!’ A week later Morgan broke his leg.

Business and life are never straight-forward.

And if you run your own business you know that it
presents a unique set of challenges.

In 2009 I met a Dublin based business owner, Morgan Browne.

In the space of a couple of months he’d lost 2 deals worth €400k
which was essential to cash-flow, had to let go key members of his
team and the banks halved the company’s overdraft and credit facilities.
He was a few weeks from going out of business.

He had also been prescribed anti-depressants and made a throw-away remark
which has since become a joke between us…’At least it can’t get any worse’.

I said ‘Never say that.  It can always get worse!’

A week later Morgan broke his leg.  

He says that I jinxed him but I dispute this…:)

The reason that I’m telling you this is because you can read a little
more about Morgan’s story in the Irish Times today.
He has been shortlisted as one of the finalists in this year’s
Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards.

Since we met in 2009, he and his team have grown their business from
€1.2Million to over €10Million this year.  And along the way Morgan’s drive
persistence and vision has transformed his life and helped create jobs for nearly 100 people (50 more jobs over the next 12 months with the IIS Group)

It’s a very inspiring story for anyone running their own business or indeed
thinking of doing so.  Times can get very dark indeed.  But there is always a solution.

Always a way.
