Building a Lifestyle Business in Retirement

Updated: Aug 25, 2020

Richard Sykes came to Chesterton House to work out whether he could afford to retire and having made the change has gone on to create a successful lifestyle business, Fernweh Camper Van Hire.

Our Chairman, Andy Jervis, caught up with Richard and asked him about his experiences working with our Financial Planning, Accounting and Legal Teams, what encouraged him to start his business, and lessons he has learned along the way.

If you're looking for a change of direction or planning for a fruitful retirement activity you'll enjoy hearing what Richard had to say.
