A GENERATION of sixth formers could be on the path to becoming “happy, sexy millionaires” thanks to a donation from a local IT company.

Anytech Solutions donated 50 copies of a book by entrepreneur Steven Bartlett to Poole High School.

The author of Happy Sexy Millionaire retired at 27 from his social media marketing business Social Chain, which he started at the age of 22 and took public in 2019 with a market valuation of more than £170million.

Anytech, owned by Chris Palmer, was one of only 10 businesses chosen to donate the book to local schools.

Mr Palmer said: “We want to support as many children as we can in Dorset and enable them to realise their full potential.

“The next generation is our future. Steven’s book is a true insight into his journey from university drop-out to starting one of the most successful social media companies in the world.”

The author still employs more than 700 people worldwide. His book – subtitled Unexpected Truths About Fulfilment, Love and Success – aims to “teach readers how to achieve personal success without losing sight of all the other things that make life fundamentally worthwhile”.

Debbie Porter, head of careers, education and information guidance at Poole High, said: “It’s so generous of AnyTech Solutions to make this donation of books which our students are already finding hard to put down.

“Steven’s book has such a rounded message for youngsters about the balance between life goals and career goals. Who knows, a Poole High pupil could be the next Steven Bartlett success story.”
