“It was pretty surprising when I got the call! I never expected to win” – Daniel Davis
Daniel is a 19 year old, self-employed handyman from the Surrey and West Sussex area. He set up his business in January and his job varies daily, working on anything from cutting grass, laying a patio to painting and decorating and plastering.
The prize win comes at a great time for Daniel who has added to his existing kit by getting a Dewalt Twinpack. He also plans to use some of the winnings to help him on the road to his future career as an electrician by buying electrical testing equipment. Daniel is hoping to get his CSCS card so he can work on site, before starting an apprenticeship later this year. His ambition is to start his own electricians business and pass his knowledge on to the next generation.
“I plan to do my apprenticeship which takes four years, work for a company for three or four years before setting up my own business and take on apprentices myself. I like the responsibility and independence of running my own business and the control I have on my workload. It can be stressful to have to deal with everything, but the day goes quickly because I’m so busy. Using an app like Trello, which helps me plan out jobs and what I need complete in the day, really helps me especially because my business is so new.”
With his company going from strength to strength Daniel relaxes by creating music in his free time. He can play the piano, drums, guitar, and bass guitar and makes electronic music on his computer before posting it all on Soundcloud, a music-streaming platform.
On being asked whether it’s worth entering the prize draw Daniel said:
“Give it a go, when I got the call I didn’t expect it and needed to look at the Toolstation blog to check that it was all real.”
Daniel was entered into the draw when he popped into his local branch for supplies including a mallet, building line and tarpaulin.
