A Day in the Life of a Jersey Entrepreneur – Roger Le Maistre


What does your normal day look like?

Weekdays always starts by dropping my two children off to school, checking in with staff, processing daily emails and paperwork, reacting to daily issues, always thinking about how to enhance current activities, offerings and new ideas, trying to get home at a reasonable hour and kissing my children good night.

How did you get to where you are today?

Hard work, always being approachable & responsive, grabbing opportunities when there and a bit of luck

What couldn’t you live your life without?

Family support, a computer and an Iphone

Which outsiders (professional services, investors, mentors, family etc.) have been most important to the success of your business?

My parents for instilling a positive mental attitude, my wife for her unending support, my Father for work ethic, my Uncles for time and support, my accountant for words of wisdom and my bank managers for being understanding !

What have been the biggest challenges you’ve had to overcome?

Over-regulation and some peoples lack of open mindedness when it comes to change

What advice would you give to your younger self before embarking on your business journey?

Invest more into property. Look and understand the bigger picture. Concentrate more on core businesses at an earlier stage. Apple is not only a fruit. Google is more than just a funny word & put a lot of money on Trump becoming President one day!
