What do you enjoy most about working at Bakers Waste?
Only being here a short time, I would have to say the people. Everyone I have meet, has made me feel so welcome and a part of the Bakers team.
How do you do your bit for the environment/ do you recycle at home? (Optional)
Since working here I have changed, not only the way I deal with my rubbish, but what products I buy. I even started trying to fix things instead of just throwing them out.
Pineapple on pizza; discuss…
I love pineapple on pizza so much I have a (hobby) production company called Pineapple on Pizza Productions.
I have a few favourite song lyrics and quotes, but my all-time favourite comes from Will Smith.
“Fail early, fail often, but always fail forward”
“To me this means never give up. When I was 14 years old, I wanted to be a pro wrestler, but life got in the way. It was till I was 38 years old (24 years later) that I start to train, and boy did I fail a lot every training session and because of that all I want to do was give up. But then I heard this quote and I decided to carried on, carry on failing but moving forward and learning every time I failed, and then 1 year and 5 months, 25 years after I had that first thought I achieved that goal and boy it felt good and since then I never stop pushing achieving.”
