He said there were two reasons to do it.

One, to do it. And two to test out his knowledge and experience gained from constant studying over the years so he can share that wisdom with others.

He got good at it but wanted to know how to be better so he bugged a friend who was doing a university degree,  so much so his friend set him up and got him on a course which lead on to… well I’ll let Darren tell you the story.
