I am Neil Grime, founder of NJG Purchasing Services Limited. Here’s why I do what I do.
Growing up I constantly remember my dad’s place of work always being on strike and while we never went for anything, it was always difficult for my parents to make ends meet.
Both my parents worked hard.
Dad had been a milkmen, a foundry worker and an engineering labourer, while mum had worked in the cotton mills through to cleaning local offices.
They were working class stock.
Dad would often take overtime when it was available and mum would work in the mornings and evenings while looking after her parents and all the household chores.
I remember the day my dad was diagnosed with incurable cancer. Mum and I were in a side room at Preston Hospital, as dad already knew. I passed out after receiving the bad news. It was also my sister’s birthday. I was 27. I had left home just 2 years earlier.
While we were not very close, after moving out Dad and I we were becoming closer. I was looking forward to the future but fate decided that we had no more time.
He passed a few months later, on the day of his wedding anniversary.
He was 63.
I felt that he had his retirement stolen from him, that he could spend more time with Mum and that he could not enjoy the benefits of working so hard for so long.
I realised that time is short.
While work is important, life, family and friends are more so.
I work to live, to support my family and achieve a retirement goal, to help my contacts and clients to do the same by reducing their workload, their stresses and allow them to enjoy life.
That is why I do what I do
