Story of Matt Purdue

I had successful career as a restaurant manager but once having children wanted a job with more sociable hours.  I knew one family member that had been a mortgage advisor.

I also intend to warn you that the road ahead will not be an easy one, it will require that you really immerse yourselves into the journey and re-focus every aspect of your routine if you want to pass CeMAP first time (or at all!).
