I have been running my ski holiday business (Purple Ski) for 27 years which I started with £3.57 in the bank and sold in June 2018 for a mid-six figure sum, which for me shows that a buy and hold philosophy can work! I split my time between Meribel and Cannes.

Investment strategy

Still learning and have been reading voraciously for the past two or three years to educate myself but still feel I have a long way to go.

Diversification is important but not beyond 15 to 20 positions
