Carwyn Jones Meets Lyndon Wood
In this episode, Carwyn sits down with Lyndon Wood, CEO of Moorhouse Group
Lyndon started constructaquote.com in 1990, aged just 19. He was struggling financially and had to live out of his car when he landed a commission only insurance job. He had no experience in the industry but needed a wage to support his family.
Nine months later he decided to take control of his career and started constructaquote. It took a lot of persuading to get insurance companies to trust this rookie, but when Lyndon won his first insurer over, others soon followed.
By the time Lyndon was 26 he was a millionaire, and by 28 he was a multimillionaire. He hasn’t looked back since.
Lyndon is a serial entrepreneur and since starting constructaquote.com has also launched other businesses including Xbroker, Sunzu and CuriousHow.
In 2012, Lyndon wrote a book called Diary of a Fortune Hunter, which gives the reader week by week business advice based on Lyndon’s experiences launching and growing constructaquote.com.
He also had a Sky TV show based on his book, aptly called Fortune Hunter TV. The show aired on Sky TV every Tuesday and joined Lyndon as he chatted to business gurus or fellow successful entrepreneurs about the lessons they learnt through building their businesses, and guidance for budding start-ups just starting their journey into the world of business.
Lyndon is dedicated to commerce and entrepreneurship and is proud that constructaquote.com supports UK tradesmen and women, and independent companies to properly insure and protect their businesses.
constructaquote.com is based in Caerphilly in south Wales, Lyndon’s home town, and employs over 100 people.
