Hey, I'm Ben Littlewood and I'm the co-founder of Moveli.
Tell us all about your business...
At Moveli we are reinventing estate agency to make moving smoother, smarter and more successful for everyone.
What's your background and motivation to get into the solopreneur life?
I started by creating student guides whilst at university and after that experience thought it better to do my own thing rather than get a job. Then I launched a Property magazine and following that an estate agency. From that I got into launching a more tech orientated agency.
As an entrepreneur, what does success ultimately mean to you?
What is the top tip you'd give to anyone looking to start, run or grow a business today?
The night is darkest before the dawn.
If there was one thing you could do repeatedly day in day out to help grow your business then what would it be?
Move towards your vision little steps at time, it may seem like you aren't getting anywhere but it's amazing how far you will have come when you look back. Consistency and focus on what really matters and keep on top of your 'to do' lists.
What are some of the things you put in place to maintain a healthy work/life balance and to keep it all together?
Exercise every day.
Who are some of your favorite entrepreneurs and why?
Elon Musk, who doesn't like a guy who can challenge massive industries and has a vision that though seems unachievable you know he is crazy enough to be able to succeed. And Steve Jobs, classic proof that obsession over the small things and focusing on perfection will deliver value ultimately. Plus the belief he had in his vision despite outside criticism.
For anyone looking to start a business today, what would be the number one bit of advice you'd give them?
Don't do it for the money, get a high paying job instead. Start something you are passionate about and believe in, you never know where it will take you. Somehow the universe rewards those who follow their path and the money will come later as a result of what you have built.
