My name is John Sollars, I run a small business in Sunny South Shropshire (Bridgnorth) in the United Kingdom. Stinkyink.Com started in my Garage in February 2002 and has been selling ink cartridges and laser toner cartridges online since April 22nd 2002 (the date of our first online order). At the time of writing (May 2012) I employ 14 full time staff and our turnover is greater than £3M – we’ve come a long way since the days in the garage!.
I have started two previous businesses previously, both of which have failed – for various reasons. I am now an evangelist for ‘Business Basics’ and encouraging other small businesses to survive longer than three years, which is where statistics show, most business struggle to survive longer than.
I am a regular contributor to many business blogs and this is where I intend to archive all of my content, so if you are interested in running a business, please check back regularly and feel free to agree or disagree whenever you feel fit!
