Man of Words Man on the Move Man of Ideas Man on a Mission
Andrew Harris asks - have you ever thought about changing your whole life?
Fulfilling the promise that was within you as a child, a promise that somehow got buried in careers, mortgages, responsibilities and family commitments? How about packing up the corporate world and running your own company? For most people the idea of really letting your ‘what I want to be when I grow up’ dream remains just that – a dream.
But not for Andrew Harris.
Born in Liverpool, he migrated to New Zealand from the UK in 2008. Being a Gemini helps with dual nationality, he believes. Currently he is transitioning his career into becoming an author, having helped run their husband and wife management recruitment company for 20 years.
His debut novel, The C Clef, is selling well on Amazon. His latest book, A Litany of Good Intentions, was published through Faithful Hound Media last year.
At last he is beginning to feel self-fulfilled. And this is just the start. He has big plans.
So who is he?
