The One Pound Challenge by Alan Radbourne
Hello! I’m Alan and this summer I graduated from Loughborough University having studied Geography and Sport Science. Like most finalists I was really unsure what I was going to do with myself after graduation, entering the big wide world is a daunting thing.
Until one day I had an idea… the One Pound Challenge.
Despite having never studied business or finances before, the idea comes from my simple desire to manage my student finances well by exploring and trying money-making and saving ideas, this developing into a keen passion for small entrepreneurial businesses.
The aim of the One Pound Challenge is primarily to discover what can be achieved in one year with just a £1 investment. Additionally, the project will aim to provide inspiration for people to become good with their money, encouragement for people to step out and not be afraid of failure, especially if looking into going into business, and equipping people with practical and honest financial advice from my experiences.

I hope the originality of the challenge will captivate your imagination, that the story will inspire you to take a bold step upon graduation or in the next stage of your life, and that the practical advice I provide will encourage you to manage your finances well.
