My story starts way back in 1989, when I was a 15-year-old with no real interest in school or education. So much so, that I decided to bypass my A-Levels, leave school and find a job that would give me the opportunity to finally get my teeth into something that inspired me.
I spent ten years working in various small, independent accountancy firms, but my inner entrepreneur felt stifled. I believed that if I wanted to make a difference, I needed to be somewhere that would allow me to spread my wings and fulfil my potential.
When I was offered a position at a leading accountancy firm, I felt like I’d made it.
Here was an opportunity to climb the corporate ladder right up to partnership. However, when I was presented with that opportunity at the age of 30, to everyone’s dismay and surprise, I didn’t want it.
The leap of faith
Determined to follow my gut instinct and do something that fulfilled me, I jumped ship and, in 2004, officially launched Inspire – an independent accountancy firm dedicated to enabling the entrepreneur to succeed.
I started off where most people start off – by myself in a tiny office with a laptop, phone and desk. Yet, with sheer determination and a good dose of entrepreneurial spirit, the business grew rapidly, turning over £150K in year one and £500k in year two.
15 years on, and Inspire is now a multi award-winning professional firm. But it hasn’t been an easy ride by any stretch of the imagination.
The journey has been a huge learning curve, but, as with all learning curves, it’s been so worth it.
The entrepreneurial itch
However, whilst Inspire excels at its role as a tax and business advisory firm, I realised that I have a burning ambition to inspire and support a wider audience of entrepreneurs – to effectively rally together a broader, nationwide network of likeminded individuals, so that they can unite and grow together in a shared, entrepreneurial community.
It’s this realisation that has led me to write the book, ‘Evolve to Succeed – The Entrepreneur’s Journey’, and develop the new initiative, Evolve – an exclusive, nationwide membership community of ambitious entrepreneurs and business leaders.
Through Evolve’s eco-system of inspirational events, insights and coaching and development programmes, we want to bring likeminded, innovative individuals together so that they can realise their personal and business ambitions.
When you bring like-minded and ambitious people together, great things happen.
Based on his book ‘Evolve to Succeed – The Entrepreneur’s Journey’ and born out of his many years’ experience working with entrepreneurs, Warren Munson has joined forces with Barry Kick, Founder of Linsar, to develop Evolve – an exclusive membership community that inspires, educates and unites entrepreneurs and business leaders.
Evolve’s purpose is to bring likeminded, innovative individuals together so that they can realise their personal and business ambitions in an environment of shared learning, exploration and evolution.
Through a unique eco-system of inspirational events, insights and coaching and development programmes, you’ll discover the knowledge and connections you need to lead a fulfilling and rewarding life – both personally and professionally.
“The basic premise is – and this is something I have always believed – when you bring like-minded and ambitious people together, great things happen. This is the bedrock of Evolve, and I’m incredibly excited to see how our members thrive together.”
A multi award-winning business advisory firm, enabling ambitious and driven entrepreneurs to succeed.
