I chatted with Albert Azis-Clauson, the CEO of UnderPinned, a platform that helps support freelancers to build their businesses.
We talked about his journey from the world of dance at the Royal Ballet School to mainstream education and then to University, raising £1m for his business within a year of graduating.
Albert, who has tried his hand at every sport played in a world-record charity rugby game which lasted more than 30 hours for the School of Hard Knocks charity.
He is an ally to the LGBTQIA+ community and featured in a popular campaign on LinkedIn wearing typically "feminine clothing". He also works with the Government's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Small Business Commissioner to shape the future of freelancing.
