A Little about us
Kevin Arrow is a veteran entrepreneur who started his first business venture in 1999. He supports Entrepreneurs and Business owners so they stay the distance.
Being the only entrepreneur in my family is tough. Every family gathering echoed with "Why don't you get a real job?". For 5 years my dad told people I was unemployed because that had less stigma than being self-employed!
Over the years my transport company won business awards for innovation and Environmental Awareness. I worked with Huge companies delivering multi million pound contracts to individuals on a budget. Of course, this business reached its 10th-anniversary milestone.
After a near-death experience (a ruptured appendix at 39) I decided that I wanted to make a change in the business I was in, having created one of the most visible online courier companies in the Uk at the time marketing and sales were calling me and thats where we launched Sark Emedia (now Online Visibility Academy)
Running a sales and marketing business is very different to a transport company however the business side was similar, we needed to find clients, make sales and grow this business. I quickly found out that my passion for business was what would lead us to today where this company is still growing, it's amazing for both of us to be present for all of our daughter's activities.
My defining moment was watching my martial artist daughters both win gold in Ju-Jitsu competitions.
Raising Champions is my superpower. What's yours?

Martial arts is an amazing life skill and it plays a big part in my life and in my 2 daughters lives. My daughters are martial artists and National and international Ju-Jitsu Champions. Martial artists have many things in common with successful business owners

I know that it takes on average 10 years to become a black belt in your chosen martial arts discipline. When you reach the black belt status, you're proficient in all the basic moves. Not everyone who starts martial arts will attain a black belt. Not every business owner will achieve 10 years in business. It takes commitment and focus to stay the distance.
