Transcript

The realities of my life when I started doing this, is three kids at school, a long career, very good contacts across the industry, those sorts of things. And the reality of my life is, I run my own business and I need to have an income. I can't live on a student scholarship and I don't have mum and dad to back me up.
Yes, I want the qualification, which will enhance my professional standing, but really I want the intellectual challenge. I want to explore ideas and extend myself in a way that I don't in the other aspects of my life.
Well, as I say, I'm not 20 any more. There are kids to support, there are family things to be done, and there's elderly parents, and I really need to fit my thesis into the rest of my life.
