(1) When Peter and I decided to set up a recycling company together, lots of people warned us not to risk it.

(1) We came in for a lot of criticism for our optimism in those days, but we held fast to our beliefs and we didn’t give way on anything of our original plan.

(1) As with all new businesses, the first months were hard – we were overworked and underpaid. In fact it got to the point where we had to go overdrawn at the bank.

(1) Now, after six years, our business is hailed as a success. We have a staff of 10 and have recently struck a deal with a leading German company.

(2)Our success is due in part to our relationship. While Peter is nowhere near as efficient as me at public relations, he is by far the best when it comes to setting out goals and getting projects under way.
