Just want to take a moment to recognise Theo Paphitis. When we were forced to be home-schooled during lockdown we tried to make the best of a bad situation. Our Mum took on the role of teaching us Monday to Thursday and then our Dad taught us business on his day off on Fridays. We very quickly developed a passion for business and started to read lots of businesses biographies and watch business shows on TV such as Dragons Den and the Apprentice. One Friday we decided to get the experience of starting a business under our belt and came up with the idea of Animate Our Logo which very quickly gained support from local businesses here in Eastbourne before catching the eye of Dragons Den star Theo Paphitis.
Theo Then picked us as an SBS winner which then changed the course of our lives ever since. Our friends finally went back to school after the first lockdown but we decided to continue with home school which was a brave but scary decision. With the support of Theo and his team at SBS we have gained so much experience, exposure not to mention so many friends through the SBS family which has also extended into our work on The Website Shop with our Dad.
Theo could happily retire and not even think about work for another day in his life. The fact that he spends so much time and energy helping people like me and my brother shows us what a legend he really is.
You will always be very special to us Theo and we thank you so much for everything
