On this week's show, Brian Purcell meets the man who, because he failed to get his dream job at Google, went from delivering pizzas at night to pay the rent, to doing it himself by setting up his own digital agency. 

“I never wanted a job more in my life,” says Alan Coleman. “I was devastated when I didn’t get it and took it quite hard but then I said, ‘feck it, I’ll do it myself’. I was delivering pizzas at night to pay the rent and it just went from there.”

Wolfgang Digital has now grown to a staff of 40+ and its founder and MD, Alan Coleman reveals the secret to his success and explains how one door slamming shut on you can open up a world of unforeseen opportunities.

Plus, he has tips and advice to help your business become a success online.
