But in between roles an opportunity popped up, a door opened and being open to new products Brian decided to start a side business with a unique product that prevents Swimmers Ear and ear pain caused by water being trapped in the ear canal.
In his midlife this side business has given him a new lease of life, greater energy and a sense of excitement about the future.
