We heard you’re starting a tea business! What are your goals?

The greatest tasting green tea you’ll ever try bevodo.co.uk (shameless plug). The goals are to be bigger than coke and inspire others in our generation. We want to be on that Forbes 30 under 30. Basketball professional slash Business owner has a nice ring to it.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In 5 years I see myself happy that’s the best way to put it. No pressure, hitting goals day by day. The most important thing is being happy with the position I’m in and no regrets. With that in mind in 5 years, I’ll be the happiest business owner working on a new project somewhere whilst living the basketball/model dream.
