He recalled:

“Without the money, I spent four months cold calling people from the floor of a small office because I couldn’t even afford a desk and a chair.

Those early months were so difficult, not knowing if I was going to be able to make it work and not knowing if I’d be able to pay my bills.”

Deering plans to turn the building of the bank into a mixed retail and residential unit.
