Small Business Stories: Charlie Devlin

Growth and strategy

27 May 2016

In 2010 Charlie Devlin decided he wanted to be his own boss, so he gave up his full-time job and started his own plumbing business. As if that wasn't enough of a challenge, he chose to do it abroad in Australia. After years of grafting, he brought his successful business back home to Glasgow.

Today, Charlie's Plumbing Services is growing fast, and he's taken the time to share some of the lessons he learned along the way – like the power of humour and the importance of clean clothes.
