Whilst in China, David, like the pandas, fell in love with bamboo (clothing). He trusted his gut, thought to himself, "This is either the fast track to bankruptcy or happy days", and went for it! Good luck with it all, David! And anyone thinking of doing an expedition - get in touch!

I've set up an eco friendly, ethical, performance clothing brand called http://www.bambooclothing.co.uk/about.html" rel="nofollow">BAM, using clothing made from bamboo. I work from home, travel around doing mini expeditions and making videos of it, visit factories, and set up my website. There is a certain amount of drudgery involved in running a business, but because I'm passionate about it, that's fine.
I had a promotional clothing brand, which I started to finance my rubbish pole-vaulting career. After that I just got bored and uninspired with that business. I did it for 10 years. I spent 7 years with the business part-time to finance pole vaulting. It took me 2 years to get bored, and 1 year to realise I had to walk away.
My moment of truth was when I was in China, almost penniless, no job and no idea what I was going to do; getting desperate but determined to be true to the journey I'd begun. I came across bamboo clothing, fell in love with the idea and went for it. It was either the fast track to bankruptcy or happy days. No planning, surveys, or research; I just went for it with my gut!
I spent 15 months before the launch living off credit cards and I worked part time as an afiliate marketing manager for a year, to find out what affiliate marketing was. I scraped by, by keeping the bigger picture in mind. I spent nothing except on food and mortgage. I remortgaged, no idea whether I was going mad or if it might actually work.
6 months after launching (June 2006) I knew it would be OK...
The best thing is that all my dreams are still possible and I am living some of them already. I'm basically quite lazy and just want to do whatever I want to do, and that's not always possible to act out!
Nothing specific. Malcolm Gladwell is always a good read.
