A Business Empire

Ken Wills works and plays hard in his native Kent

Ken Wills started with nothing and has worked his way up to a business empire with a turnover of £20 million.

Ken's fortune was not made through a lucky lottery win, nor did he inherit his wealth.

It was sheer determination and hard work that rocketed Ken Wills from obscurity to a lifestyle complete with a big house by the sea and expensive cars.

Today he boasts a jet engine maintenance shop, a helicopter firm, a fire prevention company, a restaurant, a jewellery business and a radio station on the Isle of Thanet.

"If you do what you love, you're going to be better at it," advises Ken to budding entrepreneurs.
