From the docks of Newcastle to millionaire,
this is Gavins story ..
Scott left school with a few basic qualifications
and despite his learning difficulty with dyslexia.
Gavin started his working life as a Dockyard worker
in Newcastle and today earns in excess of £400,000
as one of Kleeneze's top distributors. This is Gavin's
Teachers had not yet realised that young Gavin
was in fact dyslexic. Gavin adds, "I lost all
faith in the educational system after going through
school being treated the way I was treated; even if
you get all the qualifications you require, you're
lucky if you get a job and stay employed."
no definite career plans for the future, he decided
to follow his father into the Tyneside ship yards
where he worked for the next nine years.
Gavin found that his income was simply a wage, and
certainly not a living; he had also developed a love
for surfing and was finding his income insufficient
and his job restricting.
In order to pursue his desire for freedom and surfing
equipment, Gavin had an idea. Maybe he could set up
his own business making wetsuits. After deep consideration
of the running costs and massive debt which can be
incurred with a conventional business, he decided
for Gavin, a friend sent him a free
information pack, and introduced him to a fantastic
business opportunity. Kleeneze.
year, Gavin earned just short of £400,000 (about
four times more than our Prime Minister, Tony Blair),
building his Kleeneze business on a part-time basis
with his partner, Bonnie Arapes. Gavin was presented
with the Distributor of the Year award in 1994, and
was also made a Kleeneze business partner.
the subject of success, Gavin says, "I do not
see myself as successful yet, as I know how big Kleeneze
will get; success is different to lots of people,
and I have a long way to go yet."
Scott joined Kleeneze in 1992, and his groups
business turnover is now in excess of £3.8 million
per month. He says, "Anyone can join and make
money from day one, with training and support, they
can make the same money as me. You need no skill whatsoever.
The training we use is really about teaching people
skills and industry knowledge."
friend Eddie Smith, came round one evening and in
his excitement tried to sell me the idea of catalogues
and Kleeneze and telling me how much money someone
can make. That night I was due to visit some friends
and I told Bob I was not interested. What he did do
was to leave me a short video all about it and I watched
it a few days later. The video showed me lots of people
in beautiful locations. Some of these people were
old, blind, deaf and one man had one leg! I thought
if they can do it and make so much money, then I can
do it too."
and Bonnie have enjoyed all expenses paid trips to
Bali, Bankok, Hong Kong, Florida Keys, Australia,
Arizona, a Carribean Cruise, Malta, Monte Carlo and
Rome. These conferences are available to anyone who
registers and builds a Kleeneze business.
yourself what you would do with £50,000 per
month? I remember the first time I met Gavin
Scott, it was three years ago at a meeting held
in the North of England and at the time he was earning
£16,000 per month (only). What struck me them
was how approachable and friendly he actually was.
With his ponytail and shy smile, Gavin seemed very
him speak publicly was very inspiring, and it was
clear that although this man is so humble he is definitely
not timid. Bonnie has also engaged herself in public
speaking and certainly will be doing more in the future
but she does say, "I am still ging through my
personal development and I feel fine about Gavin being
seen in the limelight, he has so much to teach right
day you may get the chance to meet Gavin and Bonnie,
and you will see what I mean. Bonnie looks very much
the little lady but don't mistake humble for timid.
This woman knows a thing or two about business and personal
development. Leaders are readers. If you want wealth
then you need to study wealthy people, if you want happiness
then you need to study people who are happy, and if
you want it all, health, wealth and happiness then let
me recommend a great case study. Gavin
