#20 Oliver Proudlock - Life in The Public Eye, Dealing with Social Media, Making Room for What’s Important, and Happiness as a Choice
Oliver Proudlock, or simply, ‘Proudlock’, as he is widely known, is a Reality TV Star, Model, Designer, and Entrepreneur.
He first shot to fame in the UK when he was cast on the hit reality TV series ‘Made in Chelsea’ which chronicles the glamorous lives of West London's well-heeled crowd. He quickly became one of the most likeable and central characters on the show, and he’s leveraged that fame to evolve into an entrepreneur in his own right since leaving the program. He’s involved in several business ventures, most notably as the founder of the men’s fashion and jewellery brand Serge Denimes, his company now entering its 10th year of operations.
Ollie and I were introduced a few years back through mutual friends, some of you know that I manage a Japanese sake brand, and I was told that Ollie had picked up a bottle by chance. He loved the whole concept and our friend thought it might be wise for the two of us to have a chat. We hit it off instantly, and we’ve been friends and business partners ever since.
This was a lot of fun, we’ve been meaning to catch up for a while, and I thought it might be nice for my audience (and Ollie’s millions of followers) if we just recorded our chat and let everyone be a fly on the wall to our conversation. It’d give them an insight into how his brain works, we could talk about his whirlwind wedding in December, and we’d try to touch on some areas that he hasn’t covered in the past. For example - what he thought he would be when he was younger, people who left a mark and influenced him, how the pandemic has forced him to simplify his life, words to live by, and he reveals the new business venture he is launching with his wife Emma Louise in the next few weeks.
