Have you ever dreamed of being your own boss? Or putting your very own product to market?
Jason May, founder of Q-Energy drink has done just that.
“I’ve worn a lot of different hats prior to getting into this company. Once upon a time I was a lawyer…I’ve also worked in the hotel industry…and just before I started this company I was doing a bit of investment development work over in Africa.”
May says the idea for his company, came from his own needs.
“I like to be out and about and doing things, and with that in mind, sometimes you need a little extra boost…and that was the genesis of how the idea for the company came up.”
He says one of the most common misconceptions people have about being your own boss, is how easy it could be.
“It’s not a 9-5 job that’s for sure. You have to enjoy it, you have to have fun with it. Running your own company, you’re always learning something new. There’s always a new challenge around the corner…and getting through that puzzle is a lot of fun.”
