We are proud to introduce our growing team of contributors united in the vision to see young people encouraged and equipped to be successful in business, money, leadership and life.  We have a diverse and dedicated group of professionals and young people sharing their talent and expertise.

Scott Barratt  Business and Music

I have three passions in life: Psychology, Writing, and Music. I just love the culture that is associated with them all, so whenever I’m not catching or performing in a gig, I like to write about my interpretation of the many experiences that life gives us, and how they link together.  I think business and leadership are linked to everything, including the music industry.  I only hope I can share these three passions with the readers in a way that entices and keeps them interested, while hopefully helping them learn something new along the way.

In the future I hope to either be a professional musician, a teenage counselor/therapist or a music journalist. I hope you enjoy my articles.

 

Morgan Beale  Sport Journalist

Morgan Beale was born in London, but proudly declares being ‘three quarters Welsh’.  He has lived in Brussels and Washington D.C., where he played football for a couple of different teams.  At 11, Morgan was shipped back to boarding school in England, where he learned to play rugby – which has become by far his favourite sport.  He plays for the A team at his school and passionately supports the Welsh National Team.  “Sport is brilliant and can be looked at from many angles. The business aspect is particularly interesting. When I am older I would like to have something to do with sports professionally, whether that is playing or doing something like sports journalism, I don’t know. I hope you enjoy my articles.”

Morgan turns 14 in January and is in year 9.
