Stuart Douglas of SD Acquisitions on Starting Out

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 14, 2011) - Stuart Douglas of SD Acquisitions has come a long way from washing dishes at non-descript pubs but it was clear even then that he was marked out for better things. Having studied Sport and Recreation to NVQ level he went into the bar industry and worked his way up from the aforementioned dish washing all the way to management level. In his time in the bar industry he specialised in turning around problem pubs to make them profitable. Sadly he didn't get to see much of these profits and when he thought more deeply about his career he was dismayed to find that he had probably hit a ceiling in terms of his earning power.

"I looked around me and realised that most of the people who were 40, 50 and even 60 working in pubs weren't making much more money than me."

But it was a meeting with his area manager that finally convinced Stuart that he was in the wrong industry if he was ever to come even close to fulfilling his ambitions.

"I was earning £22k per year and was told by my area manager that was about as far as I was going to go within the bar industry. I certainly wasn't excited by that!"

So Stuart- like many before him - was brought to the Outsource Sales industry due to his disillusion with his previous employment. Having worked his way up from washing dishes in the bar industry it was not a huge leap for him to work his way up from entry level sales in the outsourcing business. Stuart had always had a very strong work ethic but rather than others benefit from it, as had happened in the past, Stuart found that the Outsourcing Sales industry rewarded himself instead and it was not long before SD Acquisitions was up and running.

Stuart feels very grateful to the industry for providing him with the opportunity to turn his dream of owning his own business into a reality. SD Acquisitions is the result of his determination and hard work and having left behind an industry that stifled him he is elated that he has found one that rewards all his efforts.
