The Day I Won £117,998,147.47 (Paperback)
Having worked all my adult life, spending several years in the military and then starting a new career at the bottom in civilian life, I worked hard and reached a senior managerial position in industry. At an age of fifty and being sick of boardroom politics, I decided to work for myself. Not knowing what to do, I started a gardening round and within weeks was swamped with work. Doing this for a few years I then started a garden fencing company and ran it until retiring at sixty-six. During the downtime of retirement, I decided to put on paper what everyone dreams about, winning big and changing everyone's life around them that matters.
Sitting at home on a Sunday afternoon having just had our Sunday dinner, I decided to check my lottery numbers. After double-checking, and then asking my wife, Julie to check the numbers, my next move was to contact lottery H.Q. and claim my winnings. What a life changer, from a normal existence to being a multi-millionaire in hours. You think you know what you would do and I guess we all say, look after the family etc., etc., but that's the easy part. Turning a fortune into a billion-pound industry is something else, this is how I did it.
