Hello there! My name is Ray, and I'm glad you're here.
This website is where I take the time to write about the things I know, share some of my entrepreneurial experiences, as well as write the odd personal post about things that matter to me. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I do writing it.
I'm on a mission to help entrepreneurs everywhere build their businesses with the power of the Internet. The way I do this is by sharing everything I know here on my digital marketing blog, by publishing video tutorials on my YouTube channel, as well as by coaching founders to become the best they can be, and providing bespoke consulting to help awesome businesses grow.
If you would like me to help with any of that, let's have a chat, otherwise here's a little something about me…
I’ve worked with startups, agencies, non-profits, small businesses, as well as individual entrepreneurs.

I approach projects with a strategic mindset without sacrificing on the creative direction. I can help your businesses conceive ideas, build action plans, and execute on solutions to push business growth in the short-term and value generation in the long-term.

Business should not be only about business, so here is a little insight on the man behind the brand…
As far as I can remember, I've always been a geek. I got my first computer in my early teens, and I can remember patiently typing thousands of lines of code (that's from a pre-Internet world), just so I could play this game.
Soon after that, I ventured into the world of programming languages and even learned a few along the way, but it was in my late teens that I found a much greater interest in the world of businesses. I started my first business at the age of 17 which it was a disaster, my second venture was a much better success, and I had many failures and successes after that.
I lived most of my UK life in London, but recently traded the busy city lifestyle for a much slower pace in Leeds. Oh, and by-the-way, don't let geography be a problem as I'm able to work with clients all around the world.
I'm a Star Trek fan, can't wait for the start of Star Trek Discovery. I'm a gadget enthustiast, just got myself a Ring bell and a Noke lock. I'm also an avid reader of Vertigo comics and big fan of Sigur Rós. If you're into these, send a tweet to @rayvellest, I would love to chat.
I’m happily married to my best friend and I genuinely love helping others achieve their goals. In that sense alone, I consider myself to be as fortunate as one can be. If there is anything I can do to help, be sure that I will.
If you would like to get in touch by any reason, even if just to say hello, please do so by sending me a message. If you have a quick question, by all means, consider reaching out on Twitter or Facebook.
Thank you for visiting my website! 🙂
