Roland flies high with money
This week I speak to Roland Rawicz-Szczerbo, serial entrepreneur, qualified financial advisor, director and owner of Time4Advice and Angels High. As a child, Rowland admired the drive of his father who, as a Polish immigrant, came from nothing but worked his way up and had a successful career as managing director of a major company. It took a dabble in an electrical engineering degree, and then a medical photography one, for Roland to realise what he wanted was to unleash his entrepreneurial streak instead. As a young professional, Roland describes his antics living in London in the late 80s, which includes a very entertaining story about priceless family heirlooms, a Sainsbury’s bag and an East London criminal gang. Or as Roland puts it, ‘the sort of lunacy that happens when you're a youth in town’. Superb stories from a superb guest. Expect to see another collaboration between Roland and me in the future, which may or may not be on solid ground!
