Apprentice Candidates- Harry
Reading Time: 4 Minutes

It’s lovely to have you with us, Harry, for anyone wishing to know who you are, how would you best describe yourself?

Thank you for having me. I would best describe myself as a fun, bubbly, passionate, energetic, persistent person focused on changing the world for the better and inspiring others to succeed also.

Can you please talk us through your business Magnatielo and how it came about?

I’ve always wanted to create a vibrant, fun, creative, energetic brand. A brand that encapsulates fun, happiness, charity and empowers children to want to learn about the world around them and build a tolerant all-inclusive society.

How does your business compare to competitors in the market?

Obviously, the biggest player in the market is LXXX (I won’t say their name) as I don’t want to give them more custom. However, their offering to children is generic and not fun.

You’ve been in the public eye recently for your appearance on The Apprentice, can you explain why you decided to apply to go on there?

I have been honored with an opportunity to apply to be Lord Sugar’s Business Partner. It is unfortunate how I got fired but that’s life. You win some, you lose some but you live to fight and strive for another day.

I applied as I wanted to see what it was like and ultimately show Lord Sugar and children from ALL backgrounds it doesn’t matter where in life you start off, if you work hard, stay positive and keep working you also can achieve your dreams and ambitions.

Although your time was significantly cut short Harry, we understand that the process of appearing on the show is a long one, what advice would you give to those wishing to appear on The Apprentice?

My time was cut very short. That’s the way life is sometimes. You have to enjoy the moment, the memories and encapsulate the energy and goodness into your heart and move on.

My advice to those who want to appear on the Apprentice is to do it for the right intentions. If you want it-see it, believe and go achieve it. If you’re serious and have the positive energy to succeed then this is the show for you. Don’t wait for an opportunity to come to you as it won’t. Be proactive and go live the life you want to live.

Whilst on The Apprentice, your spirituality was evident, how do you find this helps you in business and life in general?

I am deeply spiritual and believe in doing good, meditating and sending out positive energy and good waves into the universe and striving to support and help each other. I apply my spirituality to the business world by meditating, thanking the universe for my health, happiness, and family. Each day I am alive and want to create happiness and change for others so they can also succeed in life.

I am a proud Muslim and Islam has helped me soul search about my purpose in life and why fundamentally we are all here? It’s given me so much energy and blessings that I want the whole of humanity to work together, inspire each other, be kind to each other and applaud when others achieve success.

What advice would you give to those that have a dream but are afraid of taking the next steps?

We are all apprehensive in life. We have either had failures or have been let down. It’s there to make you stronger. It’s there to create a combustion of energy to reignite you and invigorate you. To allow you to strive to become the person you have always wanted to become. Take small steps towards a bigger path that is painted with happiness, energy, love, freedom and joy. Life is short, start living.

Who did you connect with most on The Apprentice and who would you like to win?

I connected with Nick and Navid the most during my time on The Apprentice. I would love for one of them to win. They are both really kind and nice people and receptive to others. In business, if kindness is anchored into you that’s half the success. The other half will come organically through growing clients, brands working with you, partnerships etc.

If you were on The Apprentice for longer, what more could viewers expect from you?

Wow. Where do I start. I’m all about the fun, energy, enthusiasm, creativity, supporting each other, morale boosting and challenging when I see things failing (as you saw in Episode 1). I would be in episode one but more refined as they progressed throughout the weeks. The viewers would have looked at me and would have invested their energy into me as a person and they can see what people are like.

What skills did you develop from your time on The Apprentice?

I developed many existing skillsets such as listening, communication, and time management. It was a very short stint on the show but I definitely took away many learnings and self-reflections.

To finish off with Harry, what would you like your legacy to be?

When I leave this Earth I would like to be remembered as that fun, enthusiastic, bubbly, inspiring and empowering Bath Bomb Entrepreneur who helped create a wave of change where community cohesion is now greater, children are more empowered and tolerant and socially we are heading towards a utopia of energy, love, positive engagement and happiness.

Children are the future, so let’s invest in them presently.

Positivity with endless possibilities.
