WHO I AM

My names Theo Ellis. Nicknames – TJ.
I own Just Be Realtheojellis.com
I’m from Manchester in the UK.

How It All Started

Through out my teenage years (I’m in my 20’s) I was like a lost little sheep without its shepherd.

I didn’t know where to go, the reasons behind what I did, what I wanted to do or what my purpose was.

On top of that I dealt with a lot of bullying, so my level of self esteem was awful.

After school I went to college for 2 years studying mechanics, then went onto studying music tech for a year. Though I passed them both, it meant nothing to me.

I knew deep down it wasn’t what I wanted to do. So I started making music for 2 – 3 years and found myself at a cross roads again after feeling “burnt” out.

The Big Transition

That same year, months before I started this website I was working in a factory job.

It was a toxic environment full of people who moaned, bitched and complained about their situations. As well as gossiped and did whatever it took to make others feel as miserable as they were.

After just 3 months I was made redundant and that’s when it finally hit me…

The Sleeping Entrepreneur Had Finally Awakened ⏰

I’d been dying to get into entrepreneurship for a good portion of my later teenage years. But I never had the courage to do it.

As well as the fact I was brainwashed to believe “college is the only way” and you “have to get a job to succeed”.

So I started diving into everything I needed to know about self employment, starting a business, taxes and so on.

That lead me to my journey of personal development, self discovery and finding my purpose in life.

This website is a part of that purpose where I dedicate my time to documenting my experiences. And sharing my journey as well as the things I’m learning along the way.
