“You do you.”

– Jack Clark

Jack Clark (@jackclark9)  is part owner of The Whole Picture Company: a picture framers and printers based in Harrogate, England.

After working for his family’s company for a number of years, Jack was given the reins by his dad towards the end of 2018 and has continued to deliver excellent service and value in the local area. This has been the driving force behind the company’s success for the past 22 years.

The company currently employs five full-time staff, one of whom is Jack’s wonderful girlfriend, Amy. 

In our wide-ranging conversation, we discussed the challenges of running a successful business; Jack’s top tips for anyone looking to get started in business and resources he’s found extremely useful; the realities of returning to daily life after four and a half months spent travelling around Asia; and so much more!

Now I should add I recorded this LONG before the recent pandemic in Jack and Amy’s beautiful home. I’ve known them both for years and it was one of my favourite episodes to record for my old podcast, The ScottBar Show!
