Who am I?

My name is Lee and for many years I've worked for charities working with either vulnerable adults in supported accommodation and/or the resettlement of people in and out of prisons & Young Offender Institutes.   My interests are around the social sciences having worked & studied in this field for many years and also in social history, music, nature and after the financial crash - economics.   I quit my job working for a large homeless charity to use my savings to set up an independent bookshop here in Hastings.  I've never run my own business but I do have experience of running a national charity that provides free books to prisoners called Haven Distribution -

This is my first venture being a sole trader (having always worked for employers), and hope to make it work.  As a one-man band I hope to build the business albeit slowly whilst I get to grips with the retail trade and trying to get people into the shop.
