Welcome to my website and blog.

A British entrepreneur, I am the Founder of alldayPA, the UK's largest 24-hour telephone answering services provider and the CEO of Isher Capital, a boutique private equity fund.

In my career so far, I'm grateful to have achieved a number of things, including being named a pioneer of the nation by HM The Queen; having my portrait hung in the National Portrait Gallery; serving on a number of Government councils and bodies, and receiving an honorary doctorate in philosophy.

I’ve experienced outstanding success in my business career and I’ve seen some incredibly tough times too. I know what it’s like to enjoy the success of a business and the pain of trying to rescue it.

Today I manage several businesses and I am a serial investor in a number of start up and high growth businesses. Concentrating my efforts on promoting British Entrepreneurship wherever and whenever I can, I yearn to learn from more experienced entrepreneurs and idolize the business acumen and ethical values instilled in me by my parents.

I am a proud British Sikh. My faith is what drives me and makes me stronger. My religion has taught me many things that I try to implement into my businesses: compassion and tolerance; seeing God and good in others; standing up for righteousness and defending myself and others against injustice.

On this website I want to share the things I’ve learnt on my journey. I want to inspire other young entrepreneurs and hopefully help them realise that you need to take every opportunity that comes your way, and believe in yourself and your ideas without fear of failure. We all succeed and fail on our journey growing a business; I want to inspire entrepreneurs not to give up on their ideas even in the face of great difficulties.

No one has the right to tell you what to do or not. Everyone is entitled to give their opinion. Just make sure you seek opinions of those that have the relevant experience or intellect and have no vested interest in the outcome. Choosing these people is possibly the most important thing in business.

The truth about Reuben Singh

Posted October 9, 2015 - Published on ONSMB

How much do you trust what you read, see, and hear in mainstream media? There’s been such a lot of damning evidence against mainstream media of late that anyone trusting it completely is, at best, being regrettably naïve. Unfortunately it’s also the case that anyone trying to learn about some specific situation will primarily get their information from news media, which of course introduces a profound risk of bias...

That I shall not fear when I go into combat. And with determination I will be victorious.
