“I’m never going broke again.”

– Ted Lawlor

Ted Lawlor (@ifonlytheyknewuk) reached the audition stages of The Apprentice 2019 and is the host of the ‘If Only They Knew’ podcast. Its aim is to connect young entrepreneurs, showcase their stories and be a hub for young business minds.

Following a messy few months at university, Ted’s bank balance hit -£5. He skipped meals, couldn’t go out and hated his retail job. 

It was at this moment he decided he’d never go broke again. 

He got an office admin job, worked his way up and is now working as a digital marketing executive whilst building his podcast on the side.

In our wide-ranging conversation, we discuss how to grow your network using Instagram; steps involved in The Apprentice audition stages; tips for those looking to start their own podcast; and so much more!
