In September 2013 in the first game of the football season, I tore my crucial ligament. This was really the worst thing that I could have happened.
This was killer news to me, and to makes things worse, I was told I was going to be out for twelve months. You can imagine how upset I was, considering I went from training fours times & playing three matches, to being told I wouldn't be able to do no sports at all.
While on my way back from my 3rd specialist meeting in November 2013, I had the discussion with my Dad about what I was going to do with this extra time I now had. We looked at everything I had an interest in, and came down to two things, Sports & Coding.
I had been Coding for two years now, in my local CoderDojo which I had be running for the past two years. I then came up with the idea of doing more one on one classes with young kids to concentrate on Coding, game development, design and more.
When I started, I had a few things to sort out, and I didn't waste any time. I went home, designed a logo, setup Social Media pages and got myself business cards.
This was the start of my first business, Kid Tech.
