From helping businesses to helping those in need, the journey of James Ward



Life is all about helping others. You will have to help those around you in every stage of your life. Whatever you do in life, everything will ultimately be about helping others. If someone around is going through a problem or an issue, even if they don’t ask for your help, you should help them.

Half of the businesses close down because of their treatment towards their clients and workforce. They have business models that cause nervous breakdowns among their staff, which is why they must shut themselves down. That is why people who are not compassionate hardly survive in today’s world.

If you shift your focus toward helping others,this will eventually lead other people to work with you. Sometimes people are not drawn to what you offer; they are drawn to your work ethic and how well you will treat them. Every successful business owner or entrepreneur will tell you the same thing.

This is what James Ward is also working on; he is a British Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, and the founder of Compare Your Business Costs. He not only treat his clients with compassion but his employees, too, because he knows they are the driving force behind his company’s success.

Apart from being an entrepreneur, he is also a well-wisher of the community around him and always wants to give back to the community. Let’s have a look at the journey of work;

Helping the businesses

When Ward began working in telecommunications, he noticed how slow the quoting process of telecom solutions was; the clients, be an individual or an organization, had to wait for months to be done with the process finally. Sometimes the client will lose half of their money because the work environment was toxic.

So, he launched his website where people can instantly compare the prices of their operating costs such as energy, insurance, internet, and finance and strategize their business accordingly.

Ward founded his company in July 2013 with the concept that business owners and employees shouldn’t have to spend time and money looking for the finest suppliers for the essential services required to keep their operations functioning. Since then, he has assisted over 10,000 businesses in saving money by comparing costs for Business Internet, Phone Systems, Energy, Insurance, Finance, Commercial Waste, and many other services. CompareYourBusinessCosts was given the ‘Best Website’ title by the Metrix Lab-backed Website of the Year awards.

Helping those in need

Ward always prides himself on saving money through his company on behalf of its clients, but now he has taken action to help the homeless by raising funds to help out the UK’s homeless community. He organized fundraising, and in the first month, his company raised over£2000 thanks to contributions from staff members, clients, and followers of the brand.

All the funds raised have been given to registered UK homelessness charities and will be further used to support individuals through the seasonsby providing healthcare, shelter, food, and clothing.
