Penrith evening networking trial to feature Cartridge Warehouse MDs struggle with blindness and bank
Small Business Owners Network Penrith, will trial an evening networking event on Tuesday 15 May featuring inspirational guest speaker, blind entrepreneur and successful businessman Jon Clifton.
Mr Clifton is Managing Director of Cartridge Warehouse and Owner/Managing Director at The Cartridge Specialists Pty Ltd.
Being legally blind has not stopped the "no bull s..." businessman from building his business into a successful national operation that recently expanded into New Zealand - although his career has not been an easy journey.
From starting his first business as a 15-year-old, he has ridden a roller coaster of success including bankruptcy, homelessness but ultimately realising his dream of building an idea into a multi-million dollar success story and one of the biggest businesses of its kind in its industry.
Jon's story will centre around the theme "Looking like the company you want to be - without the BS" aims to inspire small business owners to persevere, no matter how tough times can be.
The evening event will be held at the WOTSO Penrith (WorkSpace), 95 Station Street, Penrith from 6-8pm. A $7 fee will apply to cover catering (light refreshments).
