Successful entrepreneur and author, Lyndon Woods, will be launching a TV show that draws on his own life experiences and is dedicated to helping SME’s and potential business owners on their journey to making a ‘fortune’, that will no doubt be packed with potentially life changing decisions.


Lyndon Wood - Fortune Hunter
Host Lyndon Wood brings his own experiences to help budding entrepreneurs succeed in their ventures

Fortune Hunter, based around Lyndon’s best-selling book, Diary of a Fortune Hunter, will air its first episode, Tuesday 28th April , available to viewers on Sky and Freesat.

The programme is based around Lyndon’s own experiences throughout his career and each episode will feature high-profile guests with top industry insight, including CEO of Entrepreneurial spark, Jim Duffy, and Gordon Merrylees, Head of Entrepreneurship for RBS & Natwest.

Fortune Hunter show host, Lyndon Wood said: “The book and show are based on real-life situations. Nobody tells you what do when things go wrong in business, for example, so that’s just one of the many things we aim to do.
We cover topics such as micro segmentation, how to make decisions and mentor-ing, not just one mentor, but several, which is one of the main topics covered within the first episode. One of the important things we cover as well which you won’t find in any book or costly training seminars is the notion that theory doesn’t work in real-life. It’s a real eye-opener for many.”

“I truly hope the programme inspires entrepreneurs into understanding that it isn’t just about a power suit and in-depth business plan, actually it isn’t about any of those things, its about being laser focused, having a growth plan and not being afraid to ask for help in a variety of situations.”

Lyndon himself is no stranger to success, but it hasn’t come easy. His journey started out when he set up his first business at just of 19 years old back in August 1990, at the start of the big recession, with zero capital and no qualifications, after leaving school at the age of 14. He proceeded to build his insurance business, Constructaquote.com and Moorhouse Group, to be a UK top 100 insurance broker spe-cialising in the SME market both online and offline. Lyndon still owns 100% of the business today.

He is also the founder of SunZu, a business social network devoted to people doing business, creating customers and building teams. Within 6 weeks of launching SunZu.com, Lyndon gained in excess of 500,000 members.

Jim Duffy of Entrepreneurial Spark, a guest on the first episode, said “Fortune Hunter should be the ‘go-to’ programme for any entrepreneur or certainly one who is looking to start a business. The programme offers great insight into what help and guidance is available out there in the often scary world of business. Fortune Hunter offers so much support and advice from leading professionals and authorities that will certainly assist any business owner on their journey to success.”

Tune-in to be inspired by some the most successful entrepreneurs and leading authorities. Other guests on the first episode include Bill Morrow of AngelsDen, Andy Alderson of Vanarama, and John Loveday of Spearhead Compliance.
