Real life stories.
Find them, and use them to ignite others.

That’s why we're here.

I’ve learnt that building connection is one of the most important things that we can do as a human. Without connection we have nothing.

No meaning, no purpose and no reason.

All of these connections are linked by the power of stories. Stories are in everything and exist in everyone and should be the foundation of everything we do if we want to progress.

Adults can benefit by breaking out of their burnout in their workplace, and performing better within their work teams. Some companies like that.

Kids can learn and aim higher than their current circle facilitates. Schools often struggle finding ways to give them a useful push.

After a short career in professional football, my life completely changed as I went on a journey of self-discovery in the US. From a young man only caring about materialistic values, I transformed my outlook towards actually having empathy for the world around me.

Over the years, I have helped build a school house in Uganda that to this day educates 150 children per term and swam 53 miles in the Lake District National park, to help 36 homeless people go from the streets and back to their feet through an employment program.

I was in Manchester one evening, and I came across a homeless person who said something to me that changed my life forever. He said, 

Stories are the pages that make up this book we call life.

I wanted to help people on a full-time basis, and so in November 2019, Tales to Inspire was born. Here we share the stories of real-life people with the aim of encouraging real-life outcomes to inspire change.

A team to Inspire.

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. If too long reduce til 'I had not lived."

"July is July. August is August" because it's very easy to get caught up in the rush of life, and this quote reminds me to take a breather and to appreciate the simple side of life, the stuff that doesn't change, such as the seasons, the months etc."
