Yeah, I knew what Flynn was doing but was impressed by his gumption and writing so succumbed to the praise.

However, you are wrong about what his parents do. Again I’ll quote from a Flynn — not his initial one, but one of several we have had since.

“What do my parents do? My mum works as a secretary in a kids School and my dad no longer works, he got made redundant last year and decided to take early retirement at the age of 57 (he’s been paying a private pension for 30+ years so he was able to make things work) — he used to work for a pharmaceutical company managing the supply of the medicine from the company to a selection of pharmacies.

Definitely get drive and confidence from my parents but entrepreneurship is something new to the Blackies, I’m the first in the family!”
