A window cleaner might not be the most obvious podcast guest, but when someone grows a one-man-band business to such an impressive level as Toby Steggal of Pure View has, the profession itself becomes irrelevant whilst the lessons learnt form the journey can be universal.
Toby started Pure View Window Cleaning with no money at a time in his life when he decided there was no room for a plan B. He wanted to build something special, and combining that with his incredible level of self-belief he started on a journey that would take him from struggling to make ends meet to now having a clear 10 year plan in place to grow his business to one of the biggest & best in Sussex.
As well as his business success Toby epitomises the 'hard work = reward' mentality. With so much self belief and drive behind him its clear why we invited him on the show. Alongside his business advice Toby discusses his passion for fitness (including his daily routines, workout & personal best lifts), the importance of good nutrition, and how his religion has played a key role in his life too.
This interview with Toby was a pleasure and I hope that his every-man style and straight talking attitude helps people realise that, as the podcast name suggests, if we can do it so can you!
So, without any further from me, please enjoy this fantastic interview with the brilliant Toby Steggal of Pure View Window Cleaning.
